Who we are

The Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence in Plant Energy Biology (PEB) is a cutting-edge research centre focused on better understanding the ways plants capture, convert and use energy in response to environmental change, with a view towards improved plant energy efficiency.

Mission and Vision

Vision: To enhance plant energy efficiency by simultaneously optimising energy capture, conversion and use in changing environments, to improve the sustainable productivity of plants.

Mission: To define the complex system that determines overall energy efficiency in plants. To discover the key signals, 'gatekeeper' cells, and (epi)genetic controls that regulate this energy system. To manipulate these in combination, to tune energy efficiency across the whole plant to enhance yields.
