The Finkel Report and Australia's Energy Future, Melbourne 17 August

12.00pm - 2.00pm

RACV Club, Bourke Street,. Melbourne 3000

With Finkel Review panellist Chloe Munro and Danny Price (Founder & MD, Frontier Economics), Ivan Slavich (CEO, Energy Action) and moderator, David Blowers (Energy Fellow, Grattan Institute)

Australia has long found competitive advantage in the abundance of energy available to its industry and domestic population, however the shift from fossil fuels to renewable energy has led to challenges as scale, distribution and network reliability have not met the changing requirements.

Following the recent Finkel Review, Australia is setting a course to better facilitate the change, develop and execute it more effectively. This includes the need to balance the competing needs to keep costs low and meet reducing carbon footprints while delivering certainty in supply and importantly for investors as they look to build new capacity in the market.

Australian Energy Delegation to California

10-14 September 2018, California

The Trans-Tasman Business Circle and the Energy Efficiency Council are delighted to invite you to join us on a delegation focused on Californian leadership in the global energy transition.

The Mission, which will have a particular focus on energy efficiency, demand response and low carbon generation, is open to Australian organisations across both private and public sectors.

This delegation, led by Energy Efficiency Council CEO Luke Menzel, is an excellent opportunity for leaders across business, government, utilities and infrastructure to gain an understanding of California’s world leading energy eco-systems, emerging trends, and to establish key bilateral relationships.

This Mission also coincides with the highly anticipated Global Climate Action Summit being held in San Francisco, California from 12-14 September 2018.

Australia’s energy challenges are not unique. Learn from the leaders in the energy transition.

Energy costs have risen rapidly in recent years, and concerns around carbon continue to grow. These challenges aren’t unique, but rather are being felt around the world. California is thriving in the midst of the transformation of their energy system, building on over four decades of innovation in energy policy and technologies.

Crucially, Californian businesses and government are taking a balanced approach – driving a rapid transition to low carbon generation, while quickly ramping up energy efficiency across the economy. This means that while the unit cost of energy is high by US standards, bills for businesses and households are low because Californians don’t waste energy. This balanced approach keeps costs down while cutting carbon emissions and is becoming the model for energy transition for other advanced economies around the world.

Learn how California is innovating their way to a sustainable energy future across all parts of their economy.

Delegation program

  • Learn how California’s innovation ecosystem is driving the state’s energy transition
  • Meet with energy experts and leaders from California’s business, government and not-for-profit sectors
  • Visit the facilities driving California’s energy technology boom
  • View world leading applications of advanced energy technologies in buildings and manufacturing.

Delegation details

Date: 10 – 14 September 2018
Cost: A registration fee of $5,500 USD applies, which covers the following:

  • Full program from 10 – 14 September 2018
  • All ground costs including transport and meals included in the official group programme

(Please note that the registration fee does not include transfers, accommodation costs, international and internal airfares, and local travel undertaken on a private basis or travel for individual meetings whether or not accompanied by TTBC staff).
