Energy Efficiency conference to encourage energy productivity

The conference program for the inaugural Energy Efficiency Expo has been launched, with the two organisations, Reed Exhibitions Australia and the Energy Efficiency Council (EEC) partnering to deliver this new energy productivity and affordability focused event.

Taking place at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre, from the 23-24 October, Energy Efficiency Expo is a free-to-attend conference and exhibition for business, government and industry looking for ready and practical measures to manage their rising energy costs. 

Energy Efficiency Expo’s first conference program has been strategically developed to business owners and energy efficiency consultants about strategies and solutions to reduce their energy costs.

More than 70 expert speakers will focus on the fundamentals of energy management for businesses, manufacturers, food processors, commercial building owners and local government. 

CEO of the Energy Efficiency Council, Luke Menzel, said, “Over the past few years, the EEC has been on the ground providing clear guidance on what the energy transition means for Australian businesses. 

“But it’s clear that more is needed, and that’s where Energy Efficiency Expo comes in. 

“Our partnership with Reed Exhibitions Australia on Energy Efficiency Expo will support Australian businesses that are acting to take control of their energy costs.

“Over the past few months we’ve worked with our program partner, Sustainability Victoria, to develop a practical, accessible conference program for business, focused on giving them the information and case studies they need to make smart energy management investments.”

The two-day event will start with a joint plenary with All-Energy Australia, with The Hon Lily D’Ambrosio MP, Victoria’s Minister for Energy and Solar Homes to open proceedings, followed by keynote presentations from Richard Adams, Director – Innovation & Entrepreneurship Centre, NREL, Tim Finnigan, Director – CSIRO Energy and Professor David Shipworth, Energy and the Built Environment, UCL Energy Institute.

Day 1 will begin with a panel discussion titled ‘Are we equipped as an industry to transition to a low carbon economy?’, chaired by Luke Menzel (CEO, Energy Efficiency Council), and Day 2 with a panel session discussion titled ‘A look at how the shift in energy supply will affect the design of the system’ chaired by Ivor Frischnecht. 

Exhibition Director at Reed Exhibitions Australia, Robby Clark, said, “Energy Efficiency Expo is the prime opportunity for business, government and industry to learn how to better manage their energy usage and reduce costs. 

“This inaugural conference program for Energy Efficiency Expo has been strategically developed to offer attendees access to the industry’s leading experts, who have the insights and strategies to empower better energy efficiency. 

“The Energy Efficiency Council has been tremendous in steering the development of this program and we are proud to be able to partner with them in delivering this beneficial business event.”
