Curtin Institute for Energy Transition

What is the Curtin Institute for Energy Transition?

The Curtin Institute for Energy Transition (CIET) brings together artists and writers, biologists and geologists, engineers and physicists, and philosophers and social scientists. Together we can learn from each other and look at energy in a new way.

CIET aims to be a thought leader on climate and energy technologies as they relate to energy transition. We use scientific information to:

1. Inform stakeholders (government, industry, and lay publics) about the agreements required to systematically lift the level of societal debate around what a just transition entails, and

2. Provide a suite of technologies and tools to facilitate energy transitions in practice

We’re facilitating multidisciplinary research to accelerate a sustainable, equitable and innovative energy transition. To realise and sustain a new energy future, we must also train the next generation of problem solvers and educate the community about their role in the energy transition.

At CIET we run teach courses, host conferences, present educational events, publish academic and mainstream media articles and, of course, research pathways to a sustainable energy future.
