How social licence could shape large-scale solar
As large-scale solar farms continue to expand across regional Australia, CSIRO begins a unique study on public acceptance and its impacts on the industry's social licence.
Carbon capture and storage: one tool, many opportunities
Carbon capture and storage (CCS) has the potential to help reduce emissions. It’s a technology that’s tested, available, heavily regulated and it works at scale - but it’s not yet readily adopted.
Seeing green: low carbon steel and aluminium target reduced emissions
We are supporting the Australian Government’s Low Emissions Technology Statement to identify cleaner ways to manufacture steel and aluminium.
Diverse array of energy-storage technologies may be key to firming the grid
Australia has been described as a powerhouse of cheap renewable energy. However, when the sun doesn’t shine or the wind calms, the power-switch flicks off – a problem referred to as intermittency.
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.
Nothing but blue skies? How solar forecasting works
Cumulus, stratus or cumulonimbus, clouds all have one thing in common: they affect the amount of energy solar panels produce. So, what is solar forecasting, and why is it so important?
