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.
Cooling supercomputers using geothermal energy
CSIRO has developed a geothermal solution for cooling the Pawsey Centre supercomputer in Perth. This innovative project is the first of its kind in Australia, and is expected to save 14.5 million litres of water in its first two years' of operation.
UltraBattery: no ordinary battery
This innovative advancement on conventional battery design from the Energy Transformed National Research Flagship delivers low cost, long life, high performance power and provides a solution for future energy storage needs.
Air Conditioning Research Facilities
CSIRO has established a team of building energy experts and state-of-the-art test facilities to develop and assess conventional air conditioning and new solar cooling techniques and technologies.
Queensland Centre for Advanced Technologies (QCAT)
The Queensland Centre for Advanced Technologies (QCAT) is a collaboration between CSIRO and the State Government of Queensland. Research at QCAT covers robotics and automation, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, casting processes, mining science and engineering and improvement of iron ore processing.

The October 2008 issue shows how CSIRO is collaborating with research partners to maintain our scientific edge and help Australia's minerals industry maintain its competitive edge. (12 pages)
The February 2010 issue of Process outlines a number of technologies currently being developed through CSIRO's Flagship program that aim to provide a competitive edge for iron ore, gold, nickel and alumina producers. (12 pages)
The February 2009 issue looks at the latest research in hydrometallurgy and how it is helping alumina, base metals and gold processors. (12 pages)
CSIRO is developing new technologies and systems which use solar thermal energy to provide low emission cooling - or heating - for buildings and refrigeration for food storage.
Organic Light Emitting Diodes
Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLEDs) are an emerging display technology that delivers high contrast, high colour purity and highly efficient screens and lights.
Solar power: energy from the sun
CSIRO is a world leader in solar research. As renewable energy becomes more and more important to lowering greenhouse gas emissions, CSIRO is making solar power more efficient and effective.
