The Thermal Energy Systems group is focused on industrial decarbonisation, thermal energy storage and solar-thermal energy collection. Industrial decarbonisation is supported via involvement in the Heavy Industry Low-Carbon Transition CRC (HILTCRC) with a range of leading heavy industry companies, and includes work on green iron and steel production, cement production, and alternative sources of industrial process heat. Work is also conducted on gasification of biomass and synthesis of biomass-derived liquid fuels. Experimental facilities include furnaces, solar concentrators, a sodium heat transfer ‘loop’, and thermal energy storage components.
