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.
