How we’re accelerating the clean energy transition through a new global consortium
Six of the world's leading electricity system operators will work with international researchers—including CSIRO—to dramatically accelerate the transition to clean energy.
Geoengineering the ocean could help slow climate change
A new project led out of Germany is investigating how novel ocean negative emission technologies (NETs) might work to slow down the rate of climate change.
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.
