RACE for 2030 CRC
Monash is the lead Victorian research institution in the new Coorperative Research Centre (CRC) for Reliable Affordable Clean Energy (RACE) for 2030, which won a $349 million grant from the Australian Government in March 2020. The CRC will address one of Australia’s major challenges – delivering reliable, affordable and clean energy services for consumers and businesses.
A cross-disciplinary partnership between the Faculty of Information Technology, Faculty of Engineering, Monash Business School, the Monash Grid Innovation Hub, Monash Sustainable Development Institute and the Monash Energy Institute is working to amplify Monash’s research impact in the energy sector. Monash will also lead the RACE for Networks program, which is working to optimise Australia’s electricity grid through customer distributed energy resources and network integration.
