Kane Thornton, Clean Energy Council: "a vital platform to celebrate recent success and increase collaboration"

The conference programme for All-Energy Australia 2019, Australia’s largest clean and renewable energy event, has been announced, with over 250 industry-leading companies to showcase their innovative technology and solutions and over 200 industry experts to speak across the event’s two days. It will be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre on 23rd and 24th October. Last year’s event attracted over 8500 local and international industry visitors.

This year’s theme is Advancing Australia’s transition to a clean energy future, and is focused on driving the sector’s continued growth and collaboration required to realise the vision of an Australia powered by clean and renewable energy. In partnership with the Clean Energy Council, Australia’s peak body for the renewable energy industry, All-Energy Australia is an industry event targeted at professionals working within or investing in the renewables sector.

“All-Energy Australia is a vital platform for the industry to celebrate recent success and increase collaboration, both of which are crucial in supporting Australia’s progression to a future powered by clean energy,” Clean Energy Council CEO Kane Thornton says. “This event has become an industry focal point over the last few years due to the strong connections that are made through the numerous insightful conference sessions and engaging exhibition.”

The first day will open with a welcome from Lily D’Ambrosio, Victoria’s Minister for Energy and Solar Homes, keynote addresses by Richard Adams (US National Renewable Energy Laboratory), Tim Finnigan (CSIRO Energy) and David Shipworth (University College of London Energy Institute), and a panel discussion on Are we equipped as an industry to transition to a low carbon economy?

The second day will begin with a keynote address by Enrique Iriate, of the Spanish infrastructure group Acciona and a panel discussion on A look at how the shift in energy supply will affect the design of the system.

At the individual sessions on both days, speakers across seven streams and multiple topics will offer attendees the latest insights and recommendations to support their clean and renewable energy generation.

There will be several networking functions during the event, including the Meet the Speakers Social at the Pan Pacific Hotel Melbourne on 22nd October, where attendees can interact with conference speakers, and the Grand Networking Event and CEC's Solar Design and Installation Awards at the Convention and Exhibition Centre on 23rd October.

Attendees will also have access to the co-located Energy Efficiency Expo and Waste Expo Australia. The inaugural Energy Efficiency Expo, in partnership with the Energy Efficiency Council, is a new event, launched to help organisations solve their energy productivity and affordability challenges. Waste Expo Australia is applicable to professionals within the waste management and wastewater treatment industries.

Together, the three events will combine to form Australia’s most comprehensive opportunity to learn about renewable energy, energy efficiency and sustainable solutions.
