Our energy system has allowed rapid technological and economic development of society but at a large cost to our environment. How energy is generated, produced and harvested has implications for health, climate and economic security. How we transition our energy system to carbon neutrality requires an understanding of current non-renewable reliance and new renewable energy solutions.

Australian-German College of Climate and Energy Transitions
The Australian-German Climate & Energy College is an international Graduate College jointly instituted by the University of Melbourne partnering with German universities in the Berlin-Potsdam area. The College offers PhD candidates the opportunity to research climate change and energy transitions at a world-class level, complemented by a six month exchange program to broaden their expertise at a partner institution.
Cooperative Research Centre for Greenhouse Gas Technologies
The Cooperative Research Centre for Greenhouse Gas Technologies (CO2CRC) is one of the world's leading collaborative research organisations focused on carbon dioxide capture and geological sequestration. It is a joint venture comprising participants from industry, Australian and New Zealand universities and other research bodies, and Australian Commonwealth, State and international government agencies.
Energy Transition Hub
The Energy Transition Hub is a collaborative venture supported by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs of Trade and the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. It brings together researchers, industry experts, government, and communities to address energy transition challenges across a range of disciplines.
Melbourne Energy Institute
The Melbourne Energy Institute is an access point for industry, government and community groups seeking to work with leading researchers on innovative solutions in areas including new energy resources, developing new ways to harness renewable energy, more efficient ways to use energy, and securing energy waste. Research opportunities in a zero-carbon emission future are explored.
