National Energy Efficiency Conference: registrations, award nominations open

Registrations are now open for the National Energy Efficiency Conference 2018, which will take place from 19–20 November at the Sofitel Sydney Wentworth.

Now celebrating its 10th year, the theme for the 2018 conference is ‘Better cities, stronger industry, cheaper energy’. Minister for Environment and Energy Josh Frydenberg has already been confirmed to present, as has his political opponent Mark Butler — Shadow Minister for Energy and Climate Change.

The event will be delivered in collaboration with the International Energy Agency’s (IEA) Energy in Buildings and Communities Programme (EBC). As one of the IEA’s international technology collaboration programs, the EBC carries out research and development focusing on the integration of energy-efficient and sustainable technologies into healthy buildings and communities.

The annual gala dinner, taking place on 19 November, will see the presentation of the National Energy Efficiency Awards 2018. Now in their seventh year, the awards will recognise and celebrate excellence in energy efficiency, cogeneration and demand management.
