University of Melbourne, together with University of New South Wales (UNSW), today announced a $8.6 million research project investigating the performance and value of efficient, heavy duty, reciprocating engines running on renewable hydrogen. The research will be partly funded by the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA).
The University of Melbourne has been awarded more than $900,000 in Federal funding to develop Australia’s first open source renewable energy model, Minister for Resources and Energy Martin Ferguson announced this week.
As the Federal Government formulates its climate policy, a new analysis released today, shows that political and social will, rather than technical feasibility and cost, are the key obstacles standing in the way of a 100 per cent renewable, zero emissions electricity supply system being implemented in Australia.
Human rights and international law expert Professor Hilary Charlesworth, says that Australia's appointment to the UN Human Rights Council gives the country an opportunity to examine its own human rights record.
