RMIT University aims to undertake outcome-related research and development in its areas of demonstrated research excellence, and to support innovation to underpin future economic and social development in the communities in which it operates.
The University's approach to this strategy is to build depth and breadth of disciplinary competence in a number of targeted areas. It also seeks
Electrical engineering energy research interests cover a broad area and include all aspects of power system analysis protection and control; renewable energy sources, co-generation and energy management; condition monitoring and dielectric diagnosis of electrical equipment and electromagnetic environment, interference and compatibility.
- to promote a strong practical research culture using project teams to connect disciplinary strengths, and research activity linked to teaching and learning for staff and students;
- to focus on applied research to contribute to national and international innovation;
- to align research activities to address issues identified by industry, community partners and other client groups;
- to provide and to support the commercialisation of potential innovations.
The Energy Conservation and Renewable Energy Group conducts research in the area of renewable energy and energy which is currently wasted as low grade heat. The CARE Group is committed to the creation and development of energy technology which is environmentally sustainable and cost-effective and is involved in a number of research projects of which some examples are listed below.<
