Centre for Energy

The UWA Centre for Energy is an internationally reputable research facility in fuels, energy and sustainable development. The Centre's overall aim is to develop new knowledge and advanced technologies for efficient, effective and environmentally friendly utilisation of fuels and energy in the resources industries.

The Centre for Energy at UWA is a dedicated centre for world-class energy research and technology development.

The Centre is working closely with leading companies, institutions and government agencies, and UWA's Energy and Minerals Institute, to improve gas to liquid, clean coal and biofuel technology and to develop efficient and effective ways to minimise greenhouse gas (CO2) and other emissions.

The Centre's work is critical to address Australia's increasing reliance on imported oil and the associated energy security implications and supports energy production and services in regional communities. We also offer a range of courses, including postgraduate research that shapes future industry leaders.
