FarmPrint: a monitoring and benchmarking tool to help farmers reduce their emissions
Work is underway to help Australian farmers better understand their emissions via a new monitoring and benchmarking tool to help them make their farms more sustainable.
Hydrogen’s role in decarbonisation: ensuring a responsible transition
To decarbonise our energy systems, CSIRO is looking at the responsible innovation and social acceptance of hydrogen technologies. There are always challenges to the adoption of new technologies. Some of these challenges are technical or economic, but, for successful adoption, there also needs to be social awareness and acceptance.
Capturing fugitive methane emissions
Three technologies that mitigate methane emissions, either by destroying the gas or capturing it, are gaining the attention of miners seeking to reduce their emissions.
A changing climate could challenge our understanding of bushfires as ‘carbon neutral’ events
Australia’s fire season isn’t over yet, but a significant flux of greenhouse gases have already been released into the atmosphere. Our scientists have been exploring their impact.
Positive interest in negative emissions
Negative emissions technologies can be a real part of our approach to helping address climate change.
IPCC flags risks and response options for polar and ocean environments in latest report
A new report into polar regions, mountains, oceans and coasts shows the impacts of climate change on these sensitive areas are worse than previously thought, with implications for Australia.
Turning around transport emissions growth
When economists think of the electric vehicle market and how it might turn back emissions they think in terms of fleet share. What will trigger the wholesale switch to electric vehicles in Australia - price, choice, vehicle standards?
Electric vehicles: Are we there yet?
Electric vehicles have the potential to help us cut carbon emissions and pollution, and improve grid inefficiency. While the change here has been slow so far, the advent of lower-cost models and more charging infrastructure could see more drivers plug in.
