Join the Energy Change Institute

The Energy Change Institute provides an overarching external profile for the University across all seven Colleges, and acts as a single point of entry to the ANU for external stakeholders interested in energy.

Membership is open to all ANU staff (including visiting Fellows) who are involved in energy research. We also welcome PhD and HDR Masters students who are involved in energy research as associate members, if recommended by their cluster supervisor.


  • Additional profile for your research activities through ECI programs, networks and events
  • Opportunities to engage in wider research collaborations within the University through a community of practice
  • Additional research funding opportunities enabled through the ECI networks – particularly for multidisciplinary teams
  • Teaching opportunities through delivering undergraduate, postgraduate and professional short courses in energy 
  • Attracting students through the ECI's education and communications programs
  • Access to wider information and networks through newsletters, seminar series, public events, hosting outside visitors and informal meetings
  • Media training and profiling opportunities for you and your students’ research.

Because the ECI is an umbrella institute that links researchers in diverse disciplines across all seven ANU Colleges, there are no budgetary or reporting-line implications of membership – simply the added benefits of being part of a broad thematic program that distinguishes the University.

Membership to individual research clusters is subject to approval by the cluster convenor. If you are interested in joining the Energy Change Institut, and can identify research cluster(s) that you believe intersect with your work, please complete and submit the form below to be considered for membership.
