Zero-Carbon Energy for the Asia-Pacific

In 2018 a team led by the ANU Energy Change Institute won the University’s Grand Challenge Scheme, receiving $10 million in funding over five years for the Zero-Carbon Energy for the Asia-Pacific project.

Led by Professor Ken Baldwin, Director of the Energy Change Institute, the Zero-Carbon Energy for the Asia-Pacific team is truly interdisciplinary. The project involves researchers from five of the ANU Colleges (College of Science, College of Asia and the Pacific, College of Law, College of Engineering and Computer Science and College of Arts and Social Sciences).

Visit the central Zero-Carbon Energy for the Asia-Pacific page to see how this research initiative will support a timely, just and sustainable transition to zero-carbon energy in the Asia-Pacific.
