Energy and Resources Institute

The Energy and Resources Institute (ERI) provides high-quality research and consultancy for all aspects of energy and resources, including engineering, scientific, economic, environmental, social, community, legal, policy and digital considerations.

The scope of ERI includes:

  • fossil-based and renewable energy
  • mineral resources
  • digitisation of energy and resources
  • energy materials
  • process safety, including fire and explosion safety
  • corrosion engineering in the energy and resources sector
  • environment protection and social mandate to operate.

Centre for Renewable Energy

The Centre for Renewable Energy (CRE) was established through a partnership between CDU and the Northern Territory Government. CRE works to promote the Territory’s renewable-energy sector and to provide leadership on the deployment of renewable energy and low emissions and energy-efficient technologies. 

CRE brings together researchers to work in multidisciplinary teams. We're currently focused on the development of technologies for the efficient conversion of waste-to-energy, effective maintenance of solar PV systems and efficient hybrid renewable energy systems.

Advanced Manufacturing Alliance 

CDU has partnered with SPEE3D to form the Advanced Manufacturing Alliance, a joint initiative that utilises a world-first 3D metal printing technology.

Through collaboration, the Alliance will aim to engage with industry partners, trades and academics to:

  • develop real-world applications
  • create industry procedures and standards
  • drive material development.
