Training and professional development
Lunchtime business forum: Australia's energy outlook and strategy with Alan Kohler AM
On Thursday 11 July 2019, the Energy Efficiency Council launched the second edition of Navigating a dynamic energy landscape: A briefing for Australian businesses at a lunchtime forum featuring a keynote address by Alan Kohler AM and a panel discussion.
Designed for directors and senior executives, the briefing is a practical, approachable briefing on the drivers for transformation in Australia’s energy markets, how those drivers play out in business energy bills, and the options businesses have to take control of their energy position.
In Alan’s keynote address, he noted that businesses are reliant on "people, capital and energy." Yet while businesses have sophisticated approaches to managing people and capital, energy management is often an afterthought.
Alan was particularly forthright on the need for business to get across demand response: "If you can't make good money from demand response, then you're not trying, and your competitors will."
In the panel discussion with Alan, David Abela, Executive General Manager at Visy Global Procurement, Dr Vikas Ahuja, Head of Energy at Coles, and Anna Skarbek, CEO of ClimateWorks, the speakers discussed how business is responding to a transforming energy market, and the strategies that they are employing to take control.

4 July 2019
Chair: Rob Murray-Leach, Head of Policy
Major global economies, including China, Germany, India, Japan and the United States, are making huge strides to improve their energy efficiency and adjust when they use energy.
In June 2019, the EEC released it's latest flagship report, The World’s First Fuel: How energy efficiency is reshaping global energy systems. The report examines the energy efficiency policies that global leaders have introduced, and what the key lessons are for Australia.
In the webinar, we heard from Joe Ritchie from the International Energy Agency, who presented the latest global data on energy and energy efficiency, and Rob Murray-Leach, the EEC’s Head of Policy, who talked through the findings from The World’s First Fuel.
4 July 2018
Chair: Luke Menzel, CEO
The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) released its biennial International Energy Efficiency Scorecard in June 2018. The report examines the energy efficiency policies and performance of the world’s 25 largest energy-consuming countries, and provides a valuable, independent benchmark for how Australia is faring relative to our international competitors.
The Energy Efficiency Council partnered with the ACEEE to unpack Australia’s results in a 1-hour webinar for EEC members, partners and interested experts. The EEC's CEO, Luke Menzel, was joined on the webinar by:
- Steve Nadel, Executive Director, ACEEE
- Shruti Vaidyanathan, Senior Advisor for Research, ACEEE
