We imagine. We collaborate. We innovate.

We do the extraordinary every day. We innovate for tomorrow and help improve today – for our customers, all Australians and the world.

At the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), we shape the future. We do this by using science to solve real issues. Our research makes a difference to people, industry and the planet. As the national science agency, CSIRO is a powerhouse of ideas, technologies and skills for building prosperity, growth, health and sustainability. We serve governments, industries, business and communities across the nation.

Our value to the Australian economy is massive. Our proud legacy invented fast Wi-Fi, Aerogard, extended wear soft contact lenses, the first effective influenza vaccine, world first Hendra virus vaccine, and polymer banknotes. Today we’re helping to find the first gravitational waves in space, growing gluten-free grains, 3D-printing body parts and pioneering new renewable energy sources, just to name a few. With more than 1800 patents, we are Australia’s largest patent holder.

CSIRO Energy Business Unit

We are pioneering low-emission technologies that create value for industry and households and provide the knowledge which will help guide Australia towards a smart, secure energy future.

Our goal is to deliver solutions that will enhance Australia’s economic competitiveness and regional energy security while enabling the transition to a lower emissions energy future.
We're focused on delivering in four key impact areas:

• Improve productivity and efficiency
• Resource information for decision makers
• Remove barriers for adoption
• Reduce extraction, processing and conversion costs.

Our Energy Business Unit is comprised of a number of research programs including:

- Coal Mining
- Oil, Gas and Fuels
- Low Emissions Technologies
- Grids and Energy Efficiency Systems
- Unconventional Gas (onshore gas – shale, CSG)

We partner with local and global companies to deliver energy solutions for a sustainable future. We also work with state and federal governments, universities, research agencies and industry groups. These partnerships range from the provision of testing services and short-term contracts, to in-business scientists for SMEs, or longer-term research and strategic alliances.

We work with our partners on research that aims to:

• Improve the affordability, reliability and grid integration of renewable energy technologies, including solar, wind and biofuels
• Provide the transport sector with sustainable fuels and energy storage solutions
• Improve the way Australia uses energy at home and at work by using new technologies and improving the electricity grid
• Provide government and industry with the tools, data and modelling capability to inform policy assessment and investment decision making.
