About us

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.

We’re facilitating multidisciplinary research to accelerate a sustainable, equitable and innovative energy transition. Our Institute comprises researchers from a diverse range of backgrounds, providing the skills, knowledge and thought leadership to safely and fairly transition to a clean energy future. We offer a uniquely Western Australian perspective but connect with Curtin Global Campuses and collaborators worldwide to develop solutions and envision a new world.
