All-Energy Australia goes virtual

All-Energy Australia 2020 will take its highly anticipated conference online this year to continue supporting Australia’s transition to a clean energy future.

In partnership with the Clean Energy Council, All-Energy Australia will host a free-to-attend virtual conference across six weeks from 6 October to 12 November 2020, featuring more than 20 sessions and more than 70 leading experts from across the clean energy sector to discuss the latest developments, challenges and opportunities facing the industry.

“All-Energy Australia has been an important event for renewable energy professionals across the country over the last few years. Although we are unable to host a face-to-face event this year, this hasn’t stopped us from developing a premium virtual conference with the same calibre of sessions and speakers as our annual event,” All-Energy Australia Exhibition Director Tim Rusbridge said. “Our 2020 conference program was curated to support the renewable energy community in these unprecedented times and drive relevant conversations about the future of renewables in Australia.”

“All-Energy Australia is one of the most important dates in the calendar for the Australian renewable energy industry,” Clean Energy Council Chief Executive Kane Thornton said.

“While it’s disappointing that we won’t be able to meet in person this year, the beauty of an event such as All-Energy Australia is that the ideas and expertise presented are the same if you’re sitting in an audience with hundreds of other people or attending virtually. In such difficult times, it’s incredibly important that we continue to come together as an industry to share information, solve problems and celebrate our successes.”

The six-week program will focus on high-interest topics such as exploring Australia’s renewable energy export economy, current and future structure of virtual power plants, factors driving battery storage uptake, and opportunities to shift to green hydrogen.

Day 1 will start with a joint opening plenary with Energy Efficiency Expo, titled ‘Accelerating a Green Economic Recovery’, with Kane Thornton and the Hon Lily D’Ambrosio MP, Victorian Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change. This will be followed by a panel discussion focusing on the stimulus measures that could create jobs and fuel the revival of a green economy post-COVID.

The conference will offer attendees free access to insights from industry experts including the Hon Guy Barnett MP (Tasmanian Minister for Energy), Stefan Jarnason (CEO, Solar Analytics), James Seymour (CEO, Centre for New Energy Technologies), Dr Alan Finkel (Australia’s Chief Scientist), Rupert Maloney (Head of Hydrogen Investment, CEFC), Stan Krpan (CEO, Solar Victoria) and Tim Washington (CEO, JET Charge).

Alongside the conference, the Clean Energy Council will host the Solar Masterclass Series for solar installers to get expert advice on the big design and installation issues facing the industry. Attendance is free and CPD points will be available for eligible installers.

During the six-week period of All-Energy Australia’s conference, Energy Efficiency Expo and Waste Expo Australia will also host virtual sessions, forming the country’s largest webinar series for the clean energy, energy management, waste and recycling industries.
