Power Generation and Transport

The Power Generation and Transport program brings together researchers who investigate several forms of renewable and low emission power plants for stationary and mobile applications. This includes advanced wind, solar, gas turbine, reciprocating engine and energy storage technologies.

Capabilities

  • Carbon capture and storage (CCS)
  • Conventional and alternative fuels and emissions chemistry
  • Gas turbine, reciprocating engine, hybrid and electric powertrain
  • Wind, solar and energy storage dynamics and control
  • Low drag vehicles for land, sea and air
  • Materials for advanced photovoltaics, displays, lighting, and high temperature applications
  • Advanced computational methods and machine learning in energy applications

Impact

  • Improved powertrain fuels for Ford, DST Group and MHI
  • Improved aircraft engine aerodynamics for General Electric
  • High temperature materials for the Australian Defence Force
  • Forecasting of wind and solar generation with Meridian Energy Australia and others
