From renewable energy to waste transformation, our researchers are designing the technology to drive us towards a clean and sustainable future.
We aim to significantly decrease carbon emissions by optimising existing systems and processes, and developing new systems within the energy and materials production sector.
We carry out internationally-recognised research in the fields of energy and power networks and intelligent grid technologies towards the development of future electrical power grids.
We focus on clean energy technologies and their role in mitigating climate change, and explore new ways to help deliver sustainable energy solutions on a global scale.
We promote and support collaborative academic and industry-sponsored research in energy harvesting and energy efficiency, water quality and water resources management, wind engineering, and environmental modelling.
Our researchers aim to create a cleaner future by producing cost-effective and sustainable chemical processes for a wide range of industries.
To enable transition to a low-carbon economy of clean and versatile power conversion devices, we are optimising the designs of combustors and energy convertors for future engines, gas turbines and micro-power systems.
We conduct experimental, computational and analytic investigations into complex buoyant, stratified and shock-induced flows. Applications include building ventilation, riverine mixing and inertial confinement fusion.
More waste is being produced than ever before. Through nationwide research and industry partnerships, we can transform this waste into reusable materials and move towards a circular economy.
From effective water treatment to waste transformation, our researchers are developing innovative solutions to help us achieve a truly sustainable future.
