Coal seam gas
This 2-page brochure outlines projects being undertaken into coal seam gas by CSIRO.
CSIRO Geothermal Project
CSIRO is developing Australia’s largest direct-heat geothermal demonstration site at the Australian Resources Research Centre (ARRC) in Kensington, Perth.
CSIRO's petroleum exploration research spans from source rock characterisation through petroleum systems modelling, traps and reservoir characterisation, to faults and marine geology. This range of expertise and capabilities can be used to augment current industrial techniques and approaches to reduce exploration, development and production risks.
CSIRO has developed a range of novel tracers to characterise reservoir storage properties, and laboratory techniques to characterise chemical tracer behaviour.
Energymark is helping households and communities reduce their carbon footprints, lower energy consumption and save on power bills.
Dr Cameron Huddlestone-Holmes leads the geothermal research program at CSIRO, integrating multi-disciplinary science and technologies to better understand geothermal energy in the Australian context and deliver engineering methods to support the emerging renewable energy resource in Australia.
Exploring how the mining industry can adapt to climate change
Future climate variability and change is impacting on the Australian mining industry and its communities in different ways. CSIRO is working with mining enterprises and communities to explore climate adaptation strategies through the CSIRO Climate Adaptation Flagship, in association with both the CSIRO Coal Portfolio and the CSIRO Minerals Down Under Flagship.
High amp testing: Energy savings
Jodie Parry investigates an unlikely source of energy loss in the metal production industry - the humble electrical connection.
