Understanding the implications of new technologies

Understanding the implications of new technologies

The National Electricity Market (NEM) is undergoing an unprecedented shift where the very way in which market participants interact is likely to change. Traditionally electricity has been a one-way street, with large industrial-scale generators transferring electricity to homogeneous consumers through the transmission and distribution networks.

Now, technological innovation and changing consumer behaviour are creating a situation where consumers are able to generate electricity locally and feed power back into the grid. This is intensifying the challenge of delivering a secure supply during peak usage periods, distorting market signals and impacting affordability for many consumers, not to mention fundamentally transforming the future for traditional suppliers of stationary energy.

The second NEM Future Forum 2015 taking place in Sydney from June 24-26 will bring together local and international thought leaders from the length of the energy supply chain to explore the raft of issues the NEM is facing today and understand what the implications will be for the future.

Speakers include senior representatives from AGL, United Energy and Multinet Gas, AusNet Services, Department of Industry, TransGrid, Hydro Tasmania, ERAA, ESAA, Minerals Council of Australia, Infigen, Ergon, Qenergy, CSIRO, the Clean Energy Regulator and the Clean Energy Council.

If you want to understand how generators, distributors, transmitters and retailers need to change their operational approaches in order to face the challenges of new technologies and shifting consumer behaviour, join these industry leaders at the NEM Future Forum 2015.
