In 2018, JWLand and the Australian National University's Energy Change Institute announced a two-year partnership to support renewable energy research.
Michael Prendergast, JWLand Head of Development, said JWLand recognised that Australian businesses have a role to play in investing in clean energy as part of the global effort to reduce carbon emissions.
"JWLand is committed to advancing sustainability and the use of renewable energy in the property sector and the partnership with the Energy Change Institute is part of this."
Professor Ken Baldwin, Director of the ANU Energy Change Institute, said JWLand's support was a welcome boost for their research programs.
"This generous pledge will enable us to push forward the frontiers of knowledge in energy research, and contribute to advancing the shared interest we have with JWLand in creating a productive and low-carbon future for the nation."
Funding from JWLand will be used to support two researchers in partnership with the Department of Environment and Energy (DoEE). The researchers will be seconded to ANU from the department and will be instrumental to the ECI in undertaking projects that have an impressive mix of energy policy and industry-led research relevant to society.
