Fossil fuel energy

We are developing more efficient and sustainable fossil fuel technologies and helping industry to safely access and extract Australia's rich resources, including oil, gas and coal.

  • Advanced carbon power

    We are developing pathways to low emissions electricity from coal through to advanced carbon power technologies - the Direct Injection Carbon Engine (DICE) and the Direct Carbon Fuel Cell (DCFC).

    Primary topic: Coal mining and energy production

  • Carbon capture and storage

    Improving carbon capture and storage (CCS) so it is a viable option for Australia's energy future.

    Primary topic: Coal mining and energy production

  • Mining safety and automation

    We are developing a range of automated and smart technologies to improve the safety of mine workers and improve productivity.

  • Offshore oil and gas

    Our research focuses on understanding subsea geology and enabling the safe, efficient and sustainable development of Australia’s offshore resources.

    Primary topic: Gas, oil and CO2 storage

  • Onshore gas

    Our researchers are helping Australia better understand the opportunities and risks of onshore (unconventional) gas as a new energy source.
