The Electrochemical Systems Research Group (ESRG), led by Associate Professor Siva Karuturi, investigates innovative electrolysis materials, reactor designs and systems to cover a wide range of applications linked to energy and industry decarbonisation.

The group offers R&D resources – equipment and personnel – to carry out electrochemical projects in coordination with industrial partners. The program also supports the ANU’s educational and outreach activities by designing and delivering courses on renewable energy & fuels for scholars and industry workers.

We endeavour to bridge the gap between electrochemical research and its commercialisation to make a tangible contribution to the fight against climate change and pollution. We are developing disruptive and accessible technologies that efficiently address decarbonisation targets.

From LAB to FAB, our mission is to empower a sustainable future with affordable electrochemical solutions. Reach out to start a conversation today.

ACT-H2 Program

ACT-H2 is the ESRG’s branch dedicated to Green Hydrogen. It is an expert team of research fellows and engineers working towards the production of clean hydrogen, relying only on sunlight and a source of water. Beyond research, ACT-H2 investigates green hydrogen systems, pilot plants and commercial viability. ACT-H2 has a track record of successful large research-translation projects and industry collaborations.
