Full program released for All-Energy Australia 2015

6 Jul 2015

Technology and innovation have been unveiled as the focus of All-Energy Australia’s 2015 program, which features experts and leading exhibitors from across the global clean energy sector.

Australian Renewable Energy Agency Chairman, Greg Bourne, has been confirmed as All-Energy’s plenary chair and will lead the panel discussion The Clean Energy Evolution and Revolution.

The panel debate will feature industry voices including Enphase Co-founder, Raghu Belar, DNV GL Regional GM, Mathias Steck, Redflow BDM, Bruce Ebzery, Powershop Chief Executive Officer, Ben Burge and the Clean Energy Council’s Chief Executive Officer, Kane Thornton.

Two international keynotes will be delivered by Mr Volker Beckers and the Rt Hon. John Gummer, Lord Deben to discuss the role of industry and government in the future of renewables and clean energy:

  • The Rt. Hon John Gummer, Lord Deben was the longest serving Secretary of State for the Environment the UK has ever had. As Secretary of State for the environment, the NGO community called him ‘the best Environment Secretary we ever had’. He has consistently championed an identity between environmental concerns and business sense. To that end, he set up and now runs Sancroft, a Corporate Responsibility consultancy working with blue-chip companies around the world on environmental, social and ethical issues. Lord Deben is Chairman of the Committee on Climate Change, Valpak Limited, and the Association of Professional Financial Advisors.
  • Mr Volker Beckers was Group CEO, RWE Npower plc until the end of 2012 and prior to this, its Group CFO from 2003 to 2009. He has more than 20 years’ senior experience within the energy industry and comprehensive knowledge of European energy markets. He has worked in a variety of trade and industry bodies, including the CBI President’s Committee, on the Board of the German-British Chamber of Industry & Commerce, and since 1999 as Deputy Chair of the Executive Commercial Management Committee at the German Association of Energy and Water Industries (BDEW) and was also member of the Executive Committee of UKBCSE (now Energy UK). Since 2009 he chairs the Business Energy Forum and in 2014 he joined the Board of Trustees of Forum for the Future.

New module sessions will consider small scale technologies, hybrid energy through combining multiple power sources and the future opportunities of residential and commercial energy storage projects.

All-Energy Australia’s partnership with the Clean Energy Council will also offer attendees both Professional Development and ATRAA sessions for installers free of charge.

Anthony Reed, Exhibition Director at Reed Exhibitions Australia, said the agenda complemented All-Energy’s legacy as the key forum to debate and unveil the latest in Australia’s clean energy sector.

“Both days provide attendees with valuable access to the very latest innovations and ideas from industry, government and academia to help guide future discussions and investment,” said Mr Reed.

“All-Energy Australia remains the single largest meeting point for the clean energy sector, attracting 4,000 visitors, more than 100 exhibitors and top-tier talent from around the event all in one place.” All-Energy Australia Exhibition and Conference is taking place in Melbourne from 7 – 8 October 2015.
