Delegates hail conference success 10 December 2015

The National Energy Efficiency Conference 2015 , described by delegates as ‘informative, relevant and thought-provoking’ brought 275 efficiency experts together in Melbourne in November .

Feedback received by the Energy Efficiency Council, which delivered the conference has revealed some of the highlights of a strong conference program.

Many delegates nominated the discussion on how we tell the ‘energy efficiency story’ in a way that is compelling for Australian businesses and households as their favourite element of the conference. Behavioural and marketing experts delved deeply into the nuances of this topic in the popular ‘Psychology of selling efficiency’ session, and the discussion continued in streams dedicated to efficiency in the commercial, industrial and residential sectors.

Others were fascinated by the closing session on the future of energy services. International keynote speaker Dr Philip E Lewis, EnerNOC’s Christian Weeks and AGL’s Marc England revealed how they see new business models, platforms and communities revolutionising the global energy sector.

With outstanding feedback from delegates, Luke Menzel, EEC CEO declared the National Energy Efficiency Conference 2015 a success. He said “I’m proud of what has been achieved with this year’s Conference. With a fresh look, extra networking opportunities and new program elements including a well-attended masterclass for energy users, the event brought over 280 of Australia’s leading efficiency experts, policy makers and energy users together.”

He added “We carefully curate the conference program to promote constructive debates and pose the challenging questions that will move our industry forward. With so many passionate conversations happening on stage and off, I think the National Energy Efficiency Conference 2015 did its job – setting the stage for a big year in energy efficiency in 2016.”

The Energy Efficiency Council asked delegates to provide three words to describe the conference, with ‘informative’, ‘relevant’, ‘thought-provoking’ and ‘well organised’ leading the way.
