Future Grid Forum and Roadmap
Developing and exploring potential scenarios for Australia’s energy future and supporting the decision-making process around next steps.
Agricultural Land Management
Using land mapping methodologies to reduce track maintenance costs and maintain social licence to operate in the gas industry.
GISERA - Aquifer managed recharge using CSG produced water
Safe and sustainable reinjection of treated Coal Seam Gas (CSG) water into an aquifer in the Surat Basin.
GISERA - Community wellbeing CSG
GISERA's support of monitoring the community wellbeing, functionality and attitudes towards Coal Seam Gas in regional and rural Australia
Integrated Water Resource Assessments
We are helping Australia to maximise the value derived from its water resources. Our research is informing water planning, management and investment decisions.
Lab At Rig
CSIRO-led innovation that enables fast automated analysis of rock materials directly from drill sites.
LASC Longwall Automation
Around 90 per cent of Australia’s underground coal production comes from longwall mining. CSIRO worked with the industry and equipment manufacturers to develop sensor technology to keep miners safer, and improve productivity.
Opticool - Building IQ
Heating and cooling office buildings is one of the biggest costs for business. CSIRO has developed technology to significantly reduce energy consumption, through intelligent control of heating, ventilation and air-conditioning.
Orange Roughy and Southern Bluefin Tuna
Australian sustainable fisheries: Orange Roughy and Southern Bluefin Tuna
Reservoir Rejuvenation Technology - R2T
Enhancing gas production through stimulating in situ microbes and accelerating contemporary biogenic methanogenesis.
The southeast (SE) marine waters of Australia are warming at a rate four times the global average. The shift is affecting fisheries, biodiversity, and the wider marine industry. CSIRO proposed to conduct a series of surveys in response to this challenge
SIMA - Salmon Farming Chile
The SIMA Austral project seeks to transform the Chilean aquaculture sector through the implementation of an integrated environmental and sanitary management system, based on an ecosystemic approach.
Sustainable Commercial Fisheries
CSIRO research leads to replenished fish populations and improved economic performance of fisheries
Virtual Power Station
CSIRO developed Virtual Power Station technology to help over come the reliability challenges that rising household solar systems are causing for energy systems
Energy Waste Roadblock
Energy Waste Roadblock project identifies multiple commercial applications for captured energy waste.
In 2011 Queensland’s third major coal seam gas (CSG) project was given the green light, heralding a $70 billion development boom that delivered a major new resource export industry and jobs growth opportunity for Queensland and Australia. PAUL CUNNINGHAM reports
CSIRO’s robust research informs decision-making to realise the significant opportunities for the region’s sustainable development
Our research has helped industry better understand how Australian iron ores behave during the sintering process.
