Energy Efficiency Expo 2021 virtual conference announcement 30 September 2021

Following on from the recent cancellation of its 2021 face-to-face event due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Energy Efficiency Expo, Australia’s most comprehensive trade exhibition and conference addressing energy productivity and affordability, is pleased to announce the launch a Virtual Conference in October.

With many proposed changes, global opportunities and evolving frameworks, this year’s digital edition of the Energy Efficiency Expo’s conference could not come at more critical time.  This online event analyses the critical policy frameworks that are needed to fully optimise energy management and performance within the residential, commercial and industrial sectors and deliver the right services to support the overall net zero goal.

Held in partnership with the Energy Efficiency Council, this free-to-attend online event will run from 19 to 28 October 2021.

 “Whilst disappointingly we cannot meet face-to-face this October for the industry’s largest gathering, we all know business must go on! To support industry growth, we are pleased to launch our Virtual Conference for 2021, brining you the very best of our face-to-face event, online. The 2021 Program has been curated to offer the same calibre of sessions and speakers that visitors have come to expect from Energy Efficiency Expo." Robby Clark, Exhibition Director Energy Efficiency Expo, said.

“Australia’s energy efficiency and energy management industry – and the many businesses and households across the country that it supports – hasn’t had the opportunity to come together in person for over eighteen months now. However, despite the challenges of COVID-19, things haven’t stood still. In fact, policy and technology is evolving more rapidly than ever. So, while we are disappointed, we can’t come together in person, we are excited to be launching a free online program that will get you up to speed with all these developments.” says Luke Menzel, Chief Executive Officer, Energy Efficiency Council.

With more than 40 expert speakers, the conference program will focus on issues including the next frontier for commercial buildings, enabling healthy comfortable homes, and flexibility and the 21st century energy market

Energy Efficiency Expo’s Virtual Conference will kick off with a joint opening plenary with Energy Efficiency Expo, with Kane Thornton (Chief Executive, Clean Energy Council), The Hon Lily D’Ambrosio MP (Victorian Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change) and The Hon Chris Bowen MP (Shadow Minister for Climate Change and Energy) to open proceedings. This will be followed by a panel discussion, chaired by Luke Menzel (CEO, Energy Efficiency Council), titled ‘The Pathway to Net Zero’, discussing climate and decarbonisation in the lead-up to COP26 in Glasgow later this year.

Attendees will also hear from other industry experts including Anna Malos (Country Lead - Australia, Climates), Monique Alfris (Head of Operations and Standards, NABERS), Ross Tunmer (Senior Manager, Energy & Climate Change, Point Advisory), Lisa Zembrodt (Director, Operations – Energy Markets, Energy & Sustainability Services, Schneider Electric), Toby Cumming (Team Leader Research, Sustainability Victoria and Richard Lovell (Head of Debt Markets, CEFC)
