Alternative energy for transport research

Alternative energy for transport projects – researching use of alternative fuels and consumer behaviours associated with the take-up of alternative transport technologies.

The Alternative Energy for Transport program explores new technical solutions to improve the consumer refuelling and driving experience. It also addresses the current limitations of storage tanks to deal with the pressure and temperature extremes of natural gas fuels, while looking at the best ways to move to cleaner, cheaper and local fuels with positive environmental impacts.

The two research themes are Uptake of Alternative Energy for Transport and Fast-Fill High-Capacity Storage Solutions.

Uptake of Alternative Energy for Transport

The Uptake of Alternative Energy for Transport research examines consumer behaviour when purchasing alternative powered fuel vehicles, and helps us predict the community’s response to policy setting and economic changes.

Fast-fill, High Capacity Storage Solutions

The Fast-fill, High Capacity Storage Solutions research explores the challenges faced by on-board storage of natural gas. We also look at new tank manufacturing techniques and the design parameters required for gaseous fuel usage.
