Thanks for joining our scientists to build a better energy future for Australia
Launched in 2018, the CSIRO Energise app was developed to allow everyday Australians to contribute to our national energy research.
Since that time, CSIRO Energise has helped us to better understand how households across the country use, generate and interact with energy. The data you provided has played a critical role in our research for a more secure, reliable and sustainable energy future for all Australians.
With more than 60 surveys conducted, the app has generated deep insights into household energy consumption - ranging from appliance usage and energy bills, through to the emergence of new technologies.
These insights would not have been possible without our team of citizen scientists - everyday Australians who actively participated in the app and the surveys.
Thank you to all of you who have contributed to CSIRO Energise! Your input has played a valuable part in our national energy research.
CSIRO Energise - understanding Australian energy use
CSIRO Energise over summer
We all know that temperatures soar when summer hits. So, over the 2018/2019 summer season, we shifted our research focus to how we all use energy when the heat is on.
We successfully held a Summer Energy Study via the CSIRO Energise app, to learn more about how everyday Australians engage with energy on the hottest days of the year. It enabled our CSIRO Energise users to tell us about how they used energy when the mercury rose, what mattered to them most, and where summer hit them the hardest.
