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.
Renewable Energy Integration Facility
Researchers at the Renewable Energy Integration Facility are examining new grid design and operation techniques that can significantly transform electricity networks.
Climate Adaptation Flagship
Enabling Australia to adapt more effectively to the impacts of climate change and variability and informing national planning, regulation and investment decisions.
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.
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.
CSIRO's futuristic hardware and software innovations are powering the push to use energy more efficiently and draw it from sustainable sources.
Solar fuels road map
CSIRO is convening a world-first forum of select experts to evaluate the commercial and technical options for solar fuels.
Engineering underpins processing capabilities
A pilot-scale sintering facility in Queensland, Australia is helping researchers better understand the processing behaviour of lower-grade iron ores – information crucial for achieving the best sinter performance from these resources while reducing the process’s environmental impact.
Space the final frontier. Our Space program enables Students to gain a better understanding of what it's like to live and work in space and explore the planets of our solar system. Space is a hands-on program, run by CSIRO for Northern Territory in Transition - Year 2
Electricity and Magnetism
We use electricity every day, but how many of us really understand it? CSIRO runs an interactive Electricity and Magnetism program for students in the Northern Territory from Transition to Year 2.
Low cost energy, using organic photovoltaics
CSIRO is developing new materials and processes to enable high throughput, low cost reel-to-reel printable electronics for the production of thin film organic photovoltaic solar cells.
To help students find out more about energy transformation, CSIRO runs an interactive Exciting Energy program in the Northern Territory for Years 3 - 6.
Robotics Junior student workshop
What are robots and how do they work? Students will gain a basic understanding of robotics in the hands-on Robotic Junior program, run by CSIRO for Northern Territory in Transition - Year 2

Dr Nina Lansbury Hall: energy use and climate change
Dr Nina Hall is a social researcher helping low-income Australians to more efficiently use energy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, save money on their energy bills, and increase their wellbeing through more comfortable heating and cooling.
Low carbon living cooperative research centre
The low carbon living cooperative research centre (CRC) is a multi-disciplinary effort to enable Australia to reduce carbon emissions and transform the built environment to a low carbon future.
