Australia’s most comprehensive clean and renewable energy exhibition and conference, All-Energy Australia, is expected to hold its biggest event ever as it celebrates its tenth anniversary on 3-4 October 2018 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
ll-Energy Australia’s 2017 event was attended by more than 6500 renewable energy industry professionals from across the country and overseas, making it the largest attendance on record.
Robby Clark, Exhibition Director of All-Energy Australia, said the event’s success is reflective of the remarkable progress in the renewable energy industry.
“Last year’s attendance exceeded our expectations, with queues of people lining up to get into the plenary sessions and exhibition floor. The tremendous success of the event is an indication of the rapid growth of the renewable energy industry.
“All-Energy Australia has provided the perfect venue to celebrate the industry’s successes and discuss the challenges and new market opportunities for Australia’s energy system. We’re confident that this year’s program will maintain the event’s reputation as the must-attend event for the renewable energy industry,” Mr Clark said.
Kane Thornton, Chief Executive of the Clean Energy Council, strategic partners for the event, echoed this sentiment.
“The robust conversations and meaningful connections that come from this event are of immense value to an industry in the midst of an unprecedented boom.
“All-Energy Australia 2018 takes place at an important stage as we continue to work towards achieving our vision of an Australia powered by clean energy,” Mr Thornton said.
Now in its tenth year, All-Energy Australia 2018 will remain Australia’s largest all-encompassing clean and renewable energy event, featuring more than 180 industry speakers, over 180 exhibitors, six conference streams and four networking opportunities.
The conference program will be divided into six streams, with more than 180 industry leaders sharing exclusive insights and projections on how to tackle the future of the energy sector. The speaker list includes representatives from Federal, State and Local Government, the Clean Energy Finance Corporation, CSIRO, KPMG, Redback Technologies, DNV GL, Hydro Tasmania, the Clean Energy Regulator, Smart Commercial Solar and Siemens.
The first day will kick off with an opening plenary, featuring a ministerial welcome by Victoria’s Energy, Environment and Climate Change Minister, Lily D’Ambrosio, and a ministerial keynote by Federal Environment and Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg.
On Day 2, Powershop’s Chief Executive Officer Ed McManus and Zen Ecosystems’ Chief Financial Officer Michael Joffe will take part in a panel discussion in the opening plenary, discussing the game changers of the energy industry and looking at bringing positive disruption to the future energy system. This will be followed by a presentation from Shadow Assistant Minister for Climate Change and Energy, Pat Conroy.
This year’s All-Energy Australia is over 40 per cent larger than the 2017 event, which means more industry-leading companies showcasing more innovations and emerging technologies, more expert advice and more live demonstrations.
Over 180 companies have already confirmed to be part of the exhibitor lineup at All-Energy Australia 2018 including ABB, NEXTracker, Tesla, Jinko Solar, Fronius, Canadian Solar, SolaX Power, Array Technologies, Flex, Clenergy, Delta Energy Systems and Ecoult.
All-Energy Australia has scheduled a number of networking opportunities for attendees to meet like-minded professionals, such as the Grand Networking Event where All-Energy Australia will celebrate its tenth anniversary, and the Clean Energy Council will hold the Solar Design and Installation Awards.
Other networking opportunities include the Clean Energy Council’s Women in Renewables lunch, the all new lounge called the Power Club and the Meet the Speakers social.
