The 2017 theme is The new energy cycle: Opportunity, Innovation & Change. Speakers will assess the state of play on a range of energy matters, such as fuels, technology, market and legislative developments, supply and security, emissions, and consumer trends while looking to the future.
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.
sparc-FMA is a joint initiative of Lighting Council Australia and the Facility Management Association of Australia. The event will feature an exhibition showcasing the latest in lighting and facility management innovation from Australia and globally. For the first time, Australian and international facilities and lighting manufacturers, suppliers and service providers will be showing the latest developments under one roof.
This event will provide insights into how the transition to renewables is being implemented by one of the country’s largest retailers and generators, to outline details of this key renewable project in South Australia, and to explore how software is the key to unlocking DER value across the whole energy ecosystem.
Across 4 days of in-depth learning sessions, tailored content streams, a dedicated Policy Forum and high level keynotes and panel discussions, Australian Energy Week 2017 will provide unparalleled insights into the future direction of the energy market.
