We provide a platform for translating research and ideas into action with community and economic outcomes.
Working in new and different ways, we bring fresh insight to the problems of climate change to create innovative solutions.
Applications are opening soon for our Acceleration program, delivered by EnergyLab and our University partners.
The transition to net-zero carbon energy is vital if Australia is to meet its greenhouse emissions reduction goals. The energy sector is currently the greatest contributor to Australia’s emissions. Climate KIC Australia is exploring the application of renewable and low-carbon energy technologies and pathways to transform Australia’s energy sector.
Australia is one of the most urbanised countries in the world. Focussing on emission reductions in our cities will make a substantial contribution to climate mitigation, while preparing cities to adapt to inevitable climate changes will improve resilience. Climate-KIC Australia convenes distinct types of city-focussed actors to drive transformational systems change and create liveable and thriving Australian cities.
Climate-KIC Australia is helping regional areas explore and capture opportunities in the emerging low carbon economy. With a focus on regions that have traditionally been dependent on emissions-intensive industries, Climate-KIC Australia works with communities, using a structured approach to assist regions and towns to embrace and benefit from transition.
