The Centre for Renewable Energy and Power Systems (CREPS) was established in February 2007 to advance research in the area of renewable energy and enabling technologies.
The Centre has the following aims:
- to lead applied research on renewable energy and power systems within Australia, targeting Global application;
- to promote strategic cooperation between the University of Tasmania, the Tasmanian power industries, and International collaborators; and
- to establish the University of Tasmania as a world class research institution in the area of renewable energy and enabling technologies.
CREPS aims to enhance both fundamental (discovery-based) and applied (linkage-based) research in power and energy systems in Australia by creation of an organised, coordinated structure in which research is focused into defined programs through proven research teams. CREPS is in a unique and powerful position as a fully integrated centre able to bring all engineering disciplines together under the one umbrella.
