Our research

Limiting climate change due to anthropogenic activities requires cross-sectoral, systemic, societal transformation. Actions include decarbonisation of electricity and fuels, increased efficiency, reducing emissions from land-use change, and developing carbon dioxide removal strategies. When considered with sustainable development goals, the transition pathways are complex, far-reaching, and emergent.

Our research seeks to understand energy systems, develop better methods and technologies, and to create resilient systems that are environmentally and socially compatible. Research activities within IESVic can be found within the following five broad themes: 

  • Energy Systems
  • Sustainable Communities: People & Place
  • Renewable Energy Generation
  • Net Zero Technologies
  • Economy, Policy and Financing
