Innovations in renewable energy solutions such as battery technologies, supercapacitors, and carbon capture will play a crucial role in achieving net-zero emission goals. While these innovations continue to be improved and developed in a research and development context, they are yet to bridge the gap into mass adoption. This subject delivers fundamental knowledge on the emerging energy technologies, including technologies that are expected to be the next state-of-the-art developments, from innovative clean energy conversion to energy storage. It also explores the transition from innovation to implementation for different energy technologies and how they may be accelerated for the future. Taking a multidisciplinary approach, students have the opportunity to focus on a chosen energy innovation and evaluate the impacts that implementing this technology might have from an economic, social and scientific perspective. The acquired knowledge equips students to participate in the rapidly evolving energy frontiers.
