Registrations open for 2019 Large-scale Solar Forum

As Australia transitions to more renewable energy, the Clean Energy Council’s 2019 Large-scale Solar Forum prepares to discuss some of the opportunities and challenges facing the solar industry.

Registrations are now open for the forum, which will bring together technical experts in Brisbane in May to network and share knowledge during technical conference sessions and networking drinks.

“The solar industry has been fortunate to attract passionate professionals committed to constant improvement, and events like this help solar specialists to stay at the forefront of developments in a dynamic sector,” said Clean Energy Council Chief Executive Kane Thornton.

“More than 50 large solar farms are already under construction or due to start soon across the country, adding more than 9000 MW of new renewable power to the grid and creating almost 9000 new jobs in the process. Only a few years ago large-scale solar was an emerging technology; now it’s one of the lowest-cost types of energy generation we can build.”

Thornton urged those interested in attending to secure their place, as tickets for last year’s event sold out well in advance. The Large-scale Solar Forum, held on Thursday, 16 May 2019 at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, will be opened by Queensland Energy Minister Dr Anthony Lynham.
