Hydrogen offers a low-emissions pathway with broad potential to help decarbonise the energy, transport and industrial sectors.

Plants with large amounts of oil in their leaves and stems are paving the way for new feedstocks to produce renewable transport fuels.

Dry slag granulation technology will result in a cleaner, greener and more productive steel industry.

We are supporting the Australian Government’s Low Emissions Technology Statement to identify cleaner ways to manufacture steel and aluminium.

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.

As the pandemic impacts industries across the world, managing ocean resources sustainably is more important than ever to spur new marine and economic opportunities.

Heliostat mirrors

Six of the world's leading electricity system operators will work with international researchers—including CSIRO—to dramatically accelerate the transition to clean energy.

Clouds over a road

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?
