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's futuristic hardware and software innovations are powering the push to use energy more efficiently and draw it from sustainable sources.
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.
Making titanium metal powder
CSIRO scientists are developing a novel, high-efficiency process for making titanium metal with the aim of paving the way for a revolution in titanium metal production and fabrication.
CSIRO is developing advanced control techniques for electricity networks to allow greater penetration of renewable and low emission energy resources than is currently possible.
A step towards zero emission communities
A new CSIRO research centre to help transform Australian electricity networks and lower greenhouse gas emissions was opened today at the CSIRO Energy Centre in Newcastle, NSW.
Energy sector modelling
We use the Energy Sector Model to determine the impact of potential future events, policies and technology breakthroughs on the uptake of new technologies in electricity generation and transport.
CSIRO works closely with its research partners and industry to ensure Australia's alumina industry remains competitive.
