National Energy Efficiency Conference
Nov 15, 2016 @ 8:00 am - Nov 16, 2016 @ 5:00 pm
The National Energy Efficiency Conference 2016, Australia’s premier event dedicated to energy efficiency, distributed generation and demand management, will be delivered in collaboration with the International Energy Agency’s Energy in Buildings and Communities Program (EBC).
As one of the International Energy Agency’s (IEA’s) international technology collaboration programs, the EBC carries out research and development focusing on the integration of energy efficient and sustainable technologies into healthy buildings and communities.
EBC will hold its Executive Committee meeting in Sydney alongside the National Energy Efficiency Conference 2016. Several of EBC’s international efficiency experts will feature in the two-day conference program.
Energy Efficiency Council (EEC) CEO Luke Menzel said the Council’s collaboration with EBC will bring a global perspective to the National Energy Efficiency Conference 2016.
“With so many international experts in Sydney at the same time, this year’s conference will be a unique opportunity for Australian energy efficiency professionals, policymakers and energy users to engage with cutting-edge practice from around the world,” he said.
International Energy Agency head of energy efficiency Dr Brian Motherway is the first international keynote speaker to be announced for this year’s event. Dr Motherway joined the IEA in early 2016 after four years as the CEO of the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland.
“Brian’s visit to Australia for the National Energy Efficiency Conference 2016 is timely, as energy users, providers and policy makers grapple with the waves of new technology transforming Australia’s energy sector,” Mr Menzel said.
“Brian will share his insights into the rapid transformation taking place in energy systems around the world, and the critical role energy efficiency is playing in this transition.”
More than 350 delegates will attend the National Energy Efficiency Conference 2016. A range of sponsorship and exhibition opportunities have been released, providing an ideal opportunity for organisations seeking to connect face-to-face with Australia’s leading energy efficiency professionals, policy makers and innovative energy users and to demonstrate their leadership of the energy efficiency sector.
The National Energy Efficiency Conference 2016 will take place at Australian Technology Park, Sydney, November 15-16, 2016.
