Newcastle CSIRO Energy Centre

The CSIRO's Energy Centre at Newcastle has many innovative energy saving and renewable energy generation systems.  The Centre explores new methods of using a mix of natural ventilation and low-energy air conditioning to provide comfortable environments, and multiple renewable energy systems are architecturally integrated into the buildings and around the site.  A 5-star ABGR greenhouse performance has been met for three years, thanks to exceptional building management and energy aware staff.
