All-Energy Australia expands in 2014
12 Jun 2014
For the first time in its six year history, Australia’s largest and most successful clean and renewable energy event – All-Energy Australia – will offer seven concurrent conference sessions throughout its two days.
Featuring more than 150 leading international and local speakers, it will have a greater focus on energy efficiency and energy storage.
The dozens of subject areas to be covered include bioenergy, large and domestic scale solar, off-grid power, wind energy, electric vehicles, alternative fuels, fusion technology and the smart grid.
Other topics to be embraced at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre on October 15th and 16th will be policy, finance, technology, project development, insurance and community projects.
The opening session will address the evolution of business models in uncertain times and the conference will close with a plenary session on the benefits and drawbacks of replacing the carbon tax with an emissions reduction fund.
Delegates will also hear from specialists addressing technology, innovation and collaboration with highly regarded keynote speakers to be drawn from around the world.
The conference and extensive exhibition attracts global attention. Last year upwards of 5,500 people attended from 26 countries, up from 1,750 in its first year (2009).
All-Energy Australia Exhibition Director, Anthony Reed, says organisers are constantly looking to add new elements to ensure the conference and exhibition maintains its reputation as the best in the business.
“We unashamedly position ourselves as ‘the go to event’ for those with a professional interest in clean and renewable energy, Reed says.
Accreditation (Continuing Professional Development points) for solar installers is a significant innovation across the two days of All-Energy Australia 2014 that will add further value to their overall delegate experience.
In another first, four events will be co-located under the one roof to create Australian Sustainability Week.
Australia’s Sustainability in Business conference and exhibition, Waste Expo and the new Inter-Water Australia exhibition and conference will run alongside All-Energy Australia.
“The combined mega-event – free to all delegates – will be the biggest and most significant showcase for the clean energy, sustainability, waste and recycling, and water industries in Australia.
“It will bring together the four key pillars needed to support a sustainable future and a green economy,” Mr Reed says.
Australian Sustainability Week 2014 is likely to attract in excess of 300 exhibitors and between 8,000 and 10,000 visitors.
