Project Ahuora

This project aims to develop a cutting-edge energy-tech platform using adaptive digital twin technology and underpinned by the next-generation of energy systems science. Our team draws researchers from Waikato, Auckland, Massey, and global universities.

World-class energy research and training for industry

Our research endeavors to harness the full potential of energy using a holistic whole-of-problem approach in areas such as:

  • Advanced process integration and optimisation
  • Digital twin technology and Industry 4.0
  • Clean bioenergy production and industrial symbiosis
  • Integrated and novel thermodynamic cycles
  • Macro-energy sector planning and integration
