Research centre for lowering emissions opens in Newcastle

The CSIRO has opened a research centre designed to help transform the Australian electricity system into a lower energy emitting network, and to help Australian companies to lower their energy emissions.

The CSIRO Renewable Energy Integration Facility is based in Newcastle, New South Wales, and will operate as a base where researchers can work to develop new grid management technologies that should allow greater penetration of renewable, low-emission energy resources into electricity networks.

The facility will also be used to develop automatic fault detection techniques to help improve electricity supply reliability and reduce blackouts.
