Clean En­ergy takes cen­tre stage

The Australian Energy Review - - ALL ENERGY 2017 - Cameron Drum­mond

All-en­ergy Aus­tralia is one of the world’s most sig­nif­i­cant plat­forms for the clean and re­new­able en­ergy in­dus­try in 2017. Held in part­ner­ship with the Clean En­ergy Coun­cil, Aus­tralia’s largest clean and re­new­able en­ergy event will show­case 120 world-class speak­ers, and fea­ture 120 do­mes­tic and in­ter­na­tional ex­hibit­ing com­pa­nies.

Two days of ex­clu­sive pre­sen­ta­tions, work­shops, dis­plays and demon­stra­tions across a six-stream pro­gram will fo­cus on the evolv­ing en­ergy land­scape, its fu­ture and new mar­ket re­al­i­ties for Aus­tralia’s en­ergy sys­tem.

Clean En­ergy Coun­cil chief ex­ec­u­tive Kane Thorn­ton said the re­cent boom in the sec­tor is un­prece­dented, which means this year’s All-en­ergy Aus­tralia will be crit­i­cal for del­e­gates who are seek­ing an in­sight into the fu­ture path of Aus­tralia’s en­ergy mar­ket.

“Fol­low­ing a record-break­ing year, All-en­ergy Aus­tralia is the per­fect plat­form for look­ing ahead to 2018 and be­yond,” said Mr Thorn­ton.

All-en­ergy Aus­tralia Ex­hi­bi­tion di­rec­tor Robby Clark be­lieves that All-en­ergy Aus­tralia will set the stage for fur­ther growth and pros­per­ity for the clean and re­new­able en­ergy in­dus­try.

“With so many sec­tor lead­ers un­der one roof, this event will high­light the ways in which our en­ergy sec­tor is tack­ling the fu­ture, bal­anc­ing the needs for clean, ef­fi­cient re­new­able en­ergy with prac­ti­cal de­mands for con­stant sup­ply,” said Mr Clark.

Del­e­gates will also have the op­por­tu­nity to de­velop per­sonal con­nec­tions at ex­clu­sive busi­ness net­work­ing events, and to build their skill base with pro­grams such as the Clean En­ergy Coun­cil’s So­lar Mas­ter­class series.

World class speak­ers

This year’s con­fer­ence pro­gram fea­tures some of the in­dus­try’s most re­spected sec­toral lead­ers, shar­ing their ex­per­tise, ad­vice and pro­jec­tions in three key fo­cus ar­eas:

• Smart Cities: As en­ergy grid tech­nol­ogy con­tin­ues its rapid evo­lu­tion, re­new­able en­ergy and en­ergy stor­age is be­com­ing cen­tral in the cre­ation of new, smarter cities. The con­fer­ence will ex­plore this trans­for­ma­tion.

• En­ergy Stor­age: Bat­ter­ies are the new game-changer in the con­tem­po­rary en­ergy de­bate. All-en­ergy Aus­tralia will fo­cus on the tech­nol­ogy’s emer­gence at all lev­els: house­hold, com­mer­cial and grid, and how Aus­tralia can un­lock the po­ten­tial of these emerg­ing tech­nolo­gies in the cur­rent en­vi­ron­ment.

• Util­i­ties: As clean en­ergy in­vest­ment con­tin­ues to rise, util­i­ties must adapt to mar­ket de­mands. The trans­for­ma­tion of ex­ist­ing util­ity mod­els will be dis­cussed and in­dus­try lead­ers will out­line how to bal­ance these with con­sumer ex­pec­ta­tions.

The con­fer­ence pro­gram will cover the lat­est Gov­ern­ment ini­tia­tives, smart grid power sys­tems, project devel­op­ment in wind, so­lar and bioen­ergy, elec­tric ve­hi­cles, en­ergy stor­age and ef­fi­ciency, new tech­nolo­gies and more.

The event is also co-lo­cated with Waste Expo Aus­tralia, the coun­try’s pre­mier event for the waste and re­source re­cov­ery in­dus­try.
