Grid Innovation Hub

New Horizons Building

Australian electricity networks face challenges arising from the growing integration of renewables, greater supply volatility, rising costs, tighter regulations and the proliferation of new energy technologies. These changes require the electricity network of the future to have a progressively greater reliance on innovative, safe and reliable digital solutions. For the industry to realise the full opportunities in the digital space, existing industry professionals and future graduates need to first be armed with the necessary knowledge and tools to be active participants in this energy transformation.

The Grid Innovation Hub is a unique research, training and teaching platform for digital energy. Hosted at Monash University’s New Horizons building and underpinned by its globally recognised education and research programs, the Hub features a state-of-the-art future electricity network control room simulator commonly referred to as the Future Control Room that is supported by best-in-class electricity network software packages. This collaborative environment is designed to accelerate innovation, up-skill professionals and the creation of a new generation of professionals for the electricity industry.

We welcome the Australian electricity industry to join us on and lead the digital innovation of our electricity sector. Please contact us for more information and to discuss partnership opportunities.
