Delegates can start planning their schedules for the country’s most comprehensive clean and renewable event, with the announcement of All-Energy Australia’s conference agenda. A line-up of more than 120 world-class speakers will deliver two days of presentations across a six-stream conference program.

Some of the industry’s most respected sector leaders will unite under one roof, sharing their expertise, insights and projections on the evolving energy landscape.

The conference program will cover the latest government initiatives, smart grid power systems, project development in wind, solar and bioenergy, electric vehicles, energy storage and efficiency, new technologies and more.

All-Energy Australia Exhibition director, Robby Clark, said that All-Energy Australia will set the stage for further growth and prosperity for the clean and renewable energy industry.

“With so many sector leaders under one roof, this event will highlight the ways in which our energy sector is tackling the future, balancing the needs for clean, efficient renewable energy with practical demands for constant supply,” said Mr Clark.

Mr Clark said this year’s conference program has been adapted to reflect the rapid evolution of the energy industry.

For the first time, sustainable transport and electric vehicles will form part of the All-Energy Australia program. Electric Vehicle Council chair, Behyad Jafari, and AGL’s electric vehicles manager, Kristian Handberg, will be among the industry experts exploring policy and government support for electric vehicles, as well as the infrastructure needs and new standards required to drive on Australia roads.

Technical Insight Pty Ltd’s director Dr Robert White will explain the potential of bio energy; the development of waste heat to power. Many industrial processes continuously emit low-grade heat into the environment and this type of technology can generate electricity around the clock. Dr White will introduce the technology and provide examples of where it is used around the world.

Hydrogen Utility (H2U) CEO and co-founder, Attilio Pigneri, will share his forecast for future Australian hydrogen projects. H2U has developed a roll-out program for the establishment of 14 commercial-scale hydrogen refuelling stations, from 2016 to 2019.

KPMG’s head of clean energy, Dmitry Danilovich, will chair a three-part presentation on the future of energy storage trends. Contributing speakers include Smart Commercial Solar founder Huon Hoogesteger, Tesla Energy’s head of business development, Lara Olsen, and EOS Energy Storage’s vice president of business development and marketing, Philippe Bouchard.

Budding project developers can learn what it takes to get a new renewable energy project up and running by hearing from the personal experiences of sectoral leaders in the field.

Partner at Mills Oakley, Mick Coleman, will give delegates the benefit of his project development experience, from building and selling a Solar Farm — the Barcaldine project.

Entrepreneur and the innovator behind Blue IoT and Entrepreneur’s Angels, Bob Sharon, will challenge the traditional procurement model for new buildings and major refurbishment projects, offering alternative solutions in their place.

Renewable Energy Systems Australia’s communications and company services manager, Tanya Jackson, and economist John Noronha — key members of the team behind the 240MW Ararat wind farm — will outline their strategies for tackling this project.

The opening plenary on the first day of the event will include a ministerial welcome by Victoria’s Energy and Environment MP Lily D’Ambrosio, followed by a keynote presentation by renewable energy revolution advocate and new Australian Energy Market Operator chief executive, Audrey Zibelman.

Clean Energy Finance Corporation’s newly appointed chief executive, Ian Learmonth, will headline the second day’s proceedings. Mr Learmonth will provide an insight into the current state of clean energy investment in Australia and the renewable energy investment boom driven by the 2020 Renewable Energy Target.

To make the most of their time onsite, delegates can register their product of interest with the All-Energy Australia Business Matching Program.
