RACE for 2030 CRC researcher workshop
Join us for an information and networking workshop about participating in the proposed Reliable Affordable Clean Energy for 2030 (RACE for 2030) CRC.
The Reliable, Affordable, Clean Energy for 2030 Cooperative Research Centre (RACE for 2030 CRC) will be a consortium of research institutions, industry and government participants whose mission is to boost the energy productivity of Australian industry, cut energy bills and cut carbon emissions by integrating clean, distributed energy technologies and services.
This CRC’s success will crucially depend on the participation of Australia’s best researchers in energy-related disciplines.
We invite you to join a workshop to discuss the interests, capabilities and priorities of researchers and research organisations. This will be followed by subsequent sessions with energy utilities, product and service providers, start-ups and energy users who wish to participate, as well as government agencies.
The proposed research themes of the RACE for 2030 CRC, subject to partner input, include:
1: RACE for Industry - Boosting business energy productivity (via digitalisation, electrification and value chain optimisation)
2: RACE for Networks - Optimising Australia’s electricity grid through customer distributed energy resources and network integration
3: RACE for Consumers - Developing and applying new energy technologies and solutions for consumers
4: RACE for the Future - Foresighting, capacity building, training and education
Issues to be discussed include:
- Rationale and context
- Research scope and programs
- Participant engagement
- CRC governance and bid process
Participants are welcome to join us for networking and refreshments afterwards.
Teleconferencing facilities will be available for those unable to attend the session in person.
