Our mission

At the Siemens Swinburne Energy Transition Hub, our researchers from New Energy Technology Research Group work towards exploring and discovering novel solutions for current technical energy challenges, while our industry fellows are utilising our novel scientific findings into practice.

We define our mission as accelerating the transition towards a sustainable energy sector, with a focus on achieving Net-Zero targets and promoting the uptake of renewable energy sources. Our close partnership with industry provides a unique educating atmosphere for the students to build up a solid knowledge of engineering through our practice-based courses.

What's more, we have included renewable generation systems embedded into the facilities at the lab, consisting of state-of-the-art educational facilities in renewable energy sources, energy storage systems and energy efficiency technologies. By leveraging our combined practical and academic knowledge, we strive to speed up the transition towards a more sustainable energy sector.

Achieving Net-Zero targets is a top priority for us, and we believe that promoting the adoption of renewable energy sources is crucial to achieving this goal. Our goal is to take advantage of our latest research yields to create innovative solutions to current energy challenges and to address the world's most pressing energy issues.
