Net zero technologies & policies

Our members' expertise includes researching and testing the technologies and policies required to shift societies to adapt to our changing climate and become greenhouse gas neutral, covering decarbonisation of every sector of our economy including energy, transport and agriculture. This encapsulates technologies and policies associated with the transition to 100% renewable energy as well as those that aim to draw down and sequester atmospheric greenhouse gases (negative emissions).

Our members’ research covers energy technologies such as hydrogen, renewable energy (eg solar photovoltaics and solar thermal), material chemistry research, pumped hydro energy storage, fuel cell research, smart grids and storage, sustainable transport, energy efficiency as well as industrial and agricultural decarbonisation and greenhouse gas removal. The ANU Below Zero initiative provides opportunities for researchers and students to use the ANU campus as a laboratory.
