CSIRO, the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation, is Australia's national science agency and one of the largest and most diverse research agencies in the world.
CSIRO’s Energy Transformed Flagship aims to lower greenhouse gas emissions by providing sustainable, efficient, cost-effective energy solutions.
CSIRO’s Energy Transformed Flagship focuses on three main research areas:
- reducing Australia’s carbon footprint with economic modelling and technology
- creating a sustainable future with renewable energy generation and storage - for electricity and transport
- increasing energy efficiency in society by managing energy supply and demand.
The National Solar Energy Centre comprises a high concentration tower solar array that can generate 500 kW of energy, and a low concentration linear array for solar thermal energy
