Barbara Hardy Institute researchers develop and test mathematical models for a broad range of applications, including:
- Climate variables (forecasting and time series analysis)
- Renewable energy utilisation
- Climate change and risk analysis
- Heat transfer and energy efficient buildings
- Water harvesting
- Ecological footprints

Forecasting energy use
Forecasting and characterising grid connected solar energy and developing synergies with wind technology (ASI funded).
Saving Energy on Trains
This project has developed a driver advice system that is being used by passenger and freight railways around the world to keep trains on time and reduce energy use.
Key projects include:
Low carbon living CRC
Overcoming identified market barriers preventing adoption of cost effective low carbon products and services.
Improving train flows with connected driver advice systems
This project has developed a driver advice system that is being used by passenger and freight railways around the world to keep trains on time and reduce energy use
An integrated model for the assessment of urban sustainability (ARC Linkage project).
Our researchers conduct collaborative research that are fundamental to the sustainability of our natural and built environments.
