he Clean Energy Council today launched one of the premier events on the Australian renewables calendar, the Australian Clean Energy Summit 2015 at the Hilton Sydney from 15 to 16 July.
This high-level event, formerly held as part of Clean Energy Week, will bring together industry decision-makers and key players to discuss the latest political, financial, business and technology developments impacting the renewable energy sector.
Clean Energy Council Chief Executive Kane Thornton said following more than a year of uncertainty for the renewable energy industry in Australia, this summit would provide the sector with an important opportunity to come together and plan for a bright future.
“The Australian Clean Energy Summit will be Australia’s largest gathering of major players in the clean energy market this year, and I am excited about the discussions we will have and the progress we will make in Sydney in July,” Mr Thornton said.
“For more than a year the clean energy industry has been impacted by the review of the Renewable Energy Target (RET), with investment in large-scale projects plummeting 90 cent over the last 12 months.
“With global investment in renewable energy continuing to climb year-on-year, that’s a trend that can’t continue. The Australian Clean Energy Summit will allow the industry to get together and discuss our shared vision for a strong future for renewables, as well as how to leap over the significant hurdles we encounter along the way.
“If you want to be at the forefront of Australia’s energy transformation, join us at the Australian Clean Energy Summit in Sydney in July.”
Attendees at the Australian Clean Energy Summit will be updated by more than 80 experts on the latest political, financial, business and technology developments impacting the renewable energy sector, and have the opportunity to attend three exclusive networking events. The event is set to attract manufacturers and distributors, bankers, power generators, service providers and many more.
Registration is now open, with early bird pricing available until 31 May and discounted rates available for Clean Energy Council members, students, NGOs and group bookings.
The clean energy calendar will feature another major event in 2015, All-Energy Australia in partnership with the Clean Energy Council. This free-to-attend business-to-business conference will run alongside a massive trade exhibition in Melbourne from 7 to 8 October.
