Our research shows NZ’s potential to burn forestry waste and capture the emissions in geothermal wells. But we’ll need new partnerships between power generators, manufacturers and the forestry sector.
Shared ground heat exchanges could provide low-carbon heating for up to 80% of homes in the UK, research suggests.
Failure to make the most of Britain’s abundant renewables will mean a costly and unreliable energy supply.
In 2022, Australia is facing an election in which both major parties have little to offer on emissions reductions and moving away from fossil fuels.
Electricity, not what the EU calls ‘renewable gases’, offer the fastest route to decarbonising heating.
Electric vehicle batteries, wind turbine generators and hydrogen fuel cells are among technologies likely to be affected by the conflict.
If politics wasn’t an obstacle, we could decarbonise Australia within 13 years and soak up residual emissions with forests.
UK law currently regards heat as a physical characteristic, rather than a useful resource.
Behind the government’s net zero bluster there has been little progress in decarbonising the UK.
Labor wants to run the Kurri Kurri gas power station on green hydrogen. But the figures don’t stack up.
Plan to cut emissions quickly, use offsets sparingly and set broader goals for improving society.
Hydrogen production is among the core processes in P2X technology. Hydrogen can be used as an alternative source of clean energy and industrial feedstock for fertiliser manufacturing.
There’s a lot of buzz around green hydrogen. But we need to get the groundwork right - and pick the best spots to produce it

Embodied emissions in buildings could be a hidden setback for carbon reduction targets.
Fossil fuels account for one in five premature adult deaths each year.
Universities have long been developing research, talent and technology that, with the right mix of industry and government support, will allow Australia to emerge as a green export and R&D leader.
The global shipping sector delivers 90% of global trade and has a carbon footprint the size of Germany’s.
Coal is the dirtiest fuel source – eliminating it is a priority for tackling climate change.
Clean energy innovation, giving up coal, cutting methane and getting China and India on board for net-zero can deliver progress at COP26.
