The Centre for Renewable Energy (CRE) was established through a partnership between Charles Darwin University and the Northern Territory Government.

CRE aims to be recognised as a champion of research and community engagement in the NT and to create renewable, sustainable and behavioural solutions in remote and urban environments.

Energy plays a central role in developing more sustainable livelihoods and economies in northern and central Australia and neighbouring countries. Energy sustainability will become an issue in this endeavour unless it is properly addressed.
