A focus on the future of our cities

26 Sep 2018

Join the Energy Efficiency Council in Sydney for the National Energy Efficiency Conference, Australia’s premier annual event for the energy efficiency sector. This year’s Conference will focus on making cities liveable, manufacturing viable and energy affordable. Registrations are now open, and the program is available online.

The National Energy Efficiency Conference is Australia’s premier annual event for the energy efficiency sector. The Conference brings together over 350 energy users, policy makers and energy efficiency providers with leading domestic and international experts to analyse, debate and explore new opportunities to save energy in Australian homes and businesses.

In 2018 the National Energy Efficiency Conference celebrates its tenth year, and over the course of a decade it has built an outstanding reputation as Australia’s flagship event for energy efficiency and demand management.

Its theme for this year – Better cities, stronger industry, cheaper energy – reflects energy management's growing role in making cities liveable, manufacturing viable and energy affordable.

This year’s conference will have a truly global perspective. The EEC is proud to announce that the event will once again be delivered in collaboration with the International Energy Agency’s Energy in Buildings and Communities Programme (EBC). As one of the IEA’s international technology collaboration programmes, the EBC carries out research and development focusing on the integration of energy efficient and sustainable technologies into healthy buildings and communities.

The EEC will also be joined by two international energy efficiency leaders from Germany and California.

Prof Peter Hennicke was one of the most prominent and persistent pioneers of the German energy transformation in the 1980s. He is an economist and professor for economic policy and energy economy, and was formerly Vice President of the Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment and Energy.

Matt Golden is transforming the debate around energy management in the US. He is the CEO of Open Energy Efficiency, which is creating an open source platform that allows energy savings to be valued based on when and where they occur. This type of approach could dramatically increase the reward for energy savings while lowering the cost of our energy system.
