Energy Next: connecting technologies with the clean energy sector
NSW is gearing up to become a clean energy superpower, with the state’s Electricity Infrastructure Bill set to deliver 12 GW of renewable energy generation across five Renewable Energy Zones and 2 GW of energy storage capacity by 2030. The NSW Government recently announced the $750 million Net Zero Industry and Innovation Program to support the development of new clean technologies, help slash the emissions of existing industries and establish green hydrogen hubs.
Coinciding with NSW’s ambitious plan, an exciting clean energy event is coming to ICC Sydney from 13–14 July 2021. Energy Next is a free-to-attend B2B exhibition showcasing the latest clean energy innovation and technologies, which will be held alongside the Clean Energy Council’s Australian Clean Energy Summit.
The combined events will generate conversations and connections to improve clean energy generation and adoption in the country.
“The combination of Energy Next with the Australian Clean Energy Summit offers significant added value by giving attendees firsthand exposure to the technologies and innovations driving Australia’s clean energy transition. It will also help to increase collaboration across the industry, giving technology suppliers the opportunity to create connections and explore opportunities with the industry’s most senior executives and decision-makers,” Clean Energy Council Chief Executive Kane Thornton said.
“The Clean Energy Council is delighted to welcome Energy Next to the Australian Clean Energy Summit and is looking forward to a fantastic event in July.”
“With NSW’s exciting plans to shift to renewables, Energy Next’s inaugural edition arrives on the industry’s calendar at an important time and is well-positioned to cater to the NSW clean energy market,” Energy Next Portfolio Director Robby Clark said.
“The event is set to be the destination in NSW for the industry to connect with suppliers face to face, collaborate with peers and learn from industry experts about the latest industry developments. We’re proud to be partnering with the Clean Energy Council in delivering an event that can help build the future of NSW’s clean energy industry.”
Energy Next’s exhibition will feature the latest renewable energy and energy management technologies and solutions from leading suppliers. Some of the exhibitors include AC Solar Warehouse, Krannich, NHP, Optiturb, Prosun Solar, Shoals Technologies, SMA Australia and Solar Analytics.
Visitors to Energy Next will also have free access to sessions and workshops, with expert speakers discussing the latest technical issues and opportunities facing the industry. The program will focus on three themes:
- Technology: products, innovations and new clean energy sources set to change how we generate and use power.
- The Future Energy Mix: what our energy mix looks like today and how we’re making progress in shifting towards a low-carbon energy system.
- Research and Development: the impetus to drive renewable energy projects and initiatives forward.
An extensive range of topics will be covered in the technical sessions, including hydrogen energy, electric vehicles, battery storage, digital transformation and much more.
With Energy Next’s strategic partnership with the Clean Energy Council, the event will host the Clean Energy Council’s Solar Masterclass, a one-stop shop for solar installers to get their fix of expert advice on the big design and installation issues facing the industry. Installers and designers will also be able to earn CPD points and hear the latest updates on standards and compliance issues.
Energy Next is supported by the NSW Government. With the state government’s support, Energy Next is set to strengthen the renewable energy community in NSW and help drive Australia’s clean energy transition.
