The Energy Group aims to develop and apply innovative energy research that meets Australian future energy needs.
BLUElink project is delivered in partnership by CSIRO, the Bureau of Meteorology and the Royal Australian Navy. The system delivers beach and ocean forecasting systems assisting the Navy, marine planners and managers, maritime industry and safety authorities to guide their activities at sea and near shore.
Under a formal agreement, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority will draw on the scientific knowledge and technical support of CSIRO before, during and after a maritime environmental incident, such as an oil spill, to help better understand the impact of pollution on the surrounding marine environment.
King George River research voyage
CSIRO has led a team of scientists to a remote part of Australia’s north-west coast to record the plant and animal diversity and map the various habitat types along the coastline around the mouth of the King George River.
Ningaloo Collaboration Cluster
The Ningaloo Collaboration Cluster combined the research capabilities of universities, the Sustainable Tourism Cooperative Research Centre and the Wealth from Oceans Flagship.
Research spotlight turns on Ningaloo region
The Ningaloo Collaboration Cluster drew on the expertise of eight research partners to develop science to tackle the range of coastal resource management challenges presented by growing coastal populations and tourism.
Pipelines into the deep
Subsea or underwater pipelines carry oil and gas from drilling platforms to coastal processing centres. The CSIRO Subsea Pipeline Cluster worked closely with industry and universities to improve the safety of subsea exploration, mining and transport in Australian waters.
