Flight Path to Sustainable Aviation Fuels
With emissions reduction and fuel security in mind, Australia and New Zealand’s main aviation players approached CSIRO Energy Transformed Flagship to work collaboratively on a study that would help plan a sustainable future for aviation fuels.
The Energy Futures Forum (EFF)
The Energy Futures Forum completed its major objectives and released its final report The heat is on: the future of energy in Australia in December 2006.
Future Fuels Forum
The Future Fuels Forum brought together community, industry and government to plan for the future of transport fuels.
Electric Driveway: vehicles and household power
CSIRO is evaluating the benefits and impact of electric vehicles on Australia’s electricity networks and energy systems, and in the homes and cities of the future, to help reduce emissions from electricity generation and transport.
Australia has abundant reserves of coal and natural gas, large potential supplies of biomass and geothermal energy, and virtually unlimited sunlight, wind, wave and tidal power. Using the resources wisely is our challenge.
