Let’s think ahead to Australia’s future energy landscape… when our cities, electricity systems and technologies will be ‘smarter’, enabling greater efficiencies and environmental advantages. This global shift towards a renewable and sustainable energy economy is also facilitating a move away from centralised energy distribution.
So, what does this mean for the average Australian, and what is the economic impact? Join this future-focussed discussion to imagine a time when fossil fuels stay underground, natural and renewable energy sources are harnessed and the consumer is more in control of their energy supply and more conscious of their usage.
Our panel of energy experts, economists, entrepreneurs, and environmentalists will propose how our nation will get there and the technologies that will be needed to chart the journey.
Panelist: Professor Chris Greig
