As the world's population continues to grow, the demand for energy will keep rising.

Australia is an important supplier of energy. We are blessed with natural gas resources that can provide energy to customers both in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region.

Renewable energy also will play a part. But technological breakthroughs are needed to develop and deploy renewable energy at a significant scale.

It took more than 100 years to build the energy system that powers the global economy. The scale of the world's energy needs is far beyond the capacity of any one source or technology. Traditional energy sources, such as oil and natural gas, will be the largest part of the energy mix for decades to come.

The world will need all the energy we can produce, in every form.

The University of Western Australia, one of the world's top 100 universities, is proud to be partnering with Chevron to find solutions to some of the world's energy challenges.

We agree that research and development is a key to unlocking new energy frontiers — locally, nationally and globally.

As a result of our united efforts, world leading professors have been appointed to discover new ways of processing oil and gas, and further enhance Australia's reputation as a global leader in resources and energy innovation and research.

This benefits both industry and future generations by forever striving to seek better forms of energy. Together, we are helping to ensure Australia is at the centre of energy development and providing social, economic and environmental benefits along the way.

It will take strong partnerships and a commitment to excellence to find energy solutions for now and into the future.
