Fuels and Energy Technology Institute (FETI), formerly known as the Curtin Centre for Advanced Energy Science and Engineering (CCAESE), is a newly established research Institute at Curtin University. With over fifty researchers and an array of advanced facilities and analytical instruments, the Institute aims to be an institute of excellence in the field of energy science and engineering in the world.

The Institute also hosts the Australia-China Joint Research Centre for Energy - click here for more details.

The research activities in the Institute cover both fossil fuels and renewable energy technologies, supported by the fundings from the Australia federal government, WA state government and industry partners as well as the University.

The fundamental elements of the Institute's role are to carry out basic and applied research in energy and fuel conversions to develop advanced technologies that address national needs for fuels and energy and to transfer them to the commercial sector.

The Institute already has a substantial international collaboration network, especially with researchers in Australia, China, Korea, Japan, Denmark, and USA. The Institute continues to seek productive international collaboration, particularly with top research organisations in the Asia-Pacific region.

Establishing substantial collaboration with major industry partners, both within and outside Australia, is a strategic direction of the Institute.
