Energy Futures

Few global challenges are more pressing than moving from 20th century energy technology to 21st century energy systems.

Here, we look into the economic, social and political impacts of this transition – and aim to provide a robust, technically sound, objective and clear picture of our energy choices today and in the future.

Driven by our strong collaborations within UQ and around the world, our research looks into everything from energy systems, integrating variable renewable energy, coal seam gas and solar thermal technology, to sCO2 turbines, electro-chemical storage, fuel cells and fusion containment.
