Online course: 17 - 19 September 2024 (9.30am - 1.00pm AEST each day)

Australia is in the middle of a major energy transformation – we are leading the world in the per capita installation rate for solar and wind energy, and new technologies for energy generation and energy storage continue to revolutionise the electricity sector. But with each opportunity comes challenges to be overcome.

This Energy Change Essentials short course is tailored for professionals across government, industry and community sectors who are interested in the energy transition and seek a comprehensive overview of the latest trends in energy technology, economics and policy.

The course is delivered by the ANU Institute for Climate, Energy & Disaster Solutions (ICEDS) and brings together leading energy transition researchers from across the University to share latest research and discuss solutions.


The aim of Energy Change Essentials is to provide decision-makers in government, industry, non-government and community sectors with access to the latest research and ANU expertise on the energy transition.
