The Energy Systems Program considers how different energy technologies interact with one another and society. The program includes the technical and economic analysis of energy networks, wholesale and retail energy markets, and energy system planning.
Environment and Resources
The Environment and Resources Program examines the interactions between our energy systems and the environment. This program includes energy resource extraction and use, and how current energy systems influence environmental and human health, including legal and economic implications.
Hydrogen and Clean Fuels
The Hydrogen and Clean Fuels Program integrates research into production, distribution and use of hydrogen in the energy system. The program studies electrolysis and clean fuel production, as well as hydrogen and clean fuel distribution and use in industrial and transport applications.
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.
The Melbourne Energy Institute's research portfolio engages over 300 researchers from disciplines including Architecture, Arts, Business & Economics, Engineering, Health, Law, Planning and Science.
