Zero-carbon energy project to set Australia up as renewable powerhouse

A new research project at The Australian National University (ANU) will transform Australia's energy sector into Asia-Pacific’s renewables pipeline and help reduce global emissions.

The ANU Zero-Carbon for the Asia-Pacific project will also help redefine Australian trade with our region based on our abundant renewable energy resources.

The project will be officially launched tomorrow by Minister for Energy and Emissions Reduction the Hon Angus Taylor MP and ANU Vice-Chancellor Professor Brian Schmidt AC.

The four-year project comes with $10 million in ANU funding as part of the University’s Grand Challenges research scheme.

Media are invited to attend the launch.
