About Us

The AIE Newcastle Branch services the Hunter Valley energy region.   Originally based on the Hunter Valley coal and steel industry, the Branch now covers a much broader spectrum of energy interests.   It is home to the CSIRO Energy Centre with its Energy Technology Division, National Solar Energy Centre and Energy Transformed Flagship, and the University of Newcastle Centre for Energy, working on development and commercialisation of Renewable Energy Systems, Transportation Fuels, Energy Conversion, Energy and the Environment and Low Emission Coal.

Several events are held each year, ranging from energy technology and policy presentations, plant visits to participation in school energy competitions.   Because of our smaller size, meetings are often held in conjunction with other interested associations and Newcastle members are also welcome to attend Sydney Branch events.  We have a high proportion of Young Energy Professionals in our membership and meetings are tailored to provide networking opportunities for all members and interested parties across the sector.
