DFAT - CSIRO Research for Development Alliance
The DFAT - CSIRO Alliance is a strategic partnership that aims to improve the impact of aid. The Alliance unites DFAT’s depth of experience in development assistance with CSIRO’s strength in research into complex problems that cross scales and sectors.
Solar fuels road map
CSIRO is convening a world-first forum of select experts to evaluate the commercial and technical options for solar fuels.
Science into Society
The Science into Society Group applies social science expertise to understand human response to nationally-identified challenges, connecting stakeholders with the knowledge emerging from the latest scientific research. The Group has expertise across a broad range of social and natural sciences, and specialises in interdisciplinary research at the interface between science and society.
Dr Michael Dunlop: Conserving biodiversity in a changing climate
Dr Michael Dunlop works on biodiversity and climate change. He has a special focus on understanding the implications of climate change for conservation, and helping managers and policymakers develop approaches to conservation that will be effective in a changing climate.
Climate Change: Science and Solutions for Australia
Climate Change: Science and Solutions for Australia provides the latest scientific knowledge as at 2011 on a series of climate change topics relevant to Australia and the world. It draws on peer-reviewed literature contributed to by thousands of researchers. Available as a free eBook.
Sustainable cities and coasts
Flagship researchers are developing planning, design, infrastructure and management solutions to help Australia's cities and coasts adapt to a changing climate.
Energy Flagship Overview
CSIRO's Energy Flagship aims to lower greenhouse gas emissions by providing sustainable, efficient, cost-effective energy solutions.
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.
Ocean renewable energy
CSIRO modelling predicts that wave energy could play a large part in Australia’s future energy mix. Ocean energy extraction is an emerging technology and research is required on the nature of the resource, technology, performance and understanding the wider impacts.
Future Grid Cluster
CSIRO’s Future Grid Cluster is a three year, $13 million research program that brings together CSIRO and four Australian universities to explore the future of Australia’s electricity and gas network. The Cluster will deliver the first analytical framework, to help identify lowest cost pathways to integrating renewable energy sources and technologies into Australia’s electricity grid.
CSIRO Energy Centre
The CSIRO Energy Centre in Newcastle is a state-of-the-art facility which showcases a unique combination of energy efficient building design and small-scale generation units delivering renewable and low emission power to the site.
