NUW Energy project to find better energy solutions for all Australians

NUW Energy, an Australian-first collaboration of the best researchers from three leading universities, is working on finding solutions to Australia’s future energy needs and on ways to lower energy costs for households.

Matt Gijselman, the CEO of NUW Alliance, the research alliance of the University of Newcastle, UNSW Sydney and the University of Wollongong, said he was pleased to formally announce the partnership of NUW Energy.

“NUW Energy is a unique collaboration of our best and brightest researchers seeking innovative ways of lowering energy bills for NSW households and businesses,” Mr Gijselman said.

NUW Energy draws upon the research expertise across UNSW Sydney, the University of Newcastle and the University of Wollongong, to explore one of the most significant challenges facing Australia – our energy future.

The NUW Energy project will work closely with government and industry to provide a data- and research-driven approach to policy-setting and decision-making, along with driving regional economic growth and job opportunities in the sector.

“NUW Energy is focused on the delivery of safe, secure, reliable and affordable energy to power New South Wales now and into the future,” Mr Gijselman said.

The formation of the NUW Alliance has been given the green light by Matt Kean, Minister for Energy and Environment.

“There has never been a more important time for this Alliance to come together. And there have never been bigger challenges facing our state,” Mr Kean said.

“These extraordinary times lend new urgency to the purpose of NUW Energy, to explore the challenges of climate, energy and the environment and to find new solutions that sustain our economic prosperity and ensure the health of the environment.”
