Following the Global Climate Action Summit (GCAS) in California last September, and the release of the UN scientists’ IPCC climate change report, 350.org Australia and partners are hosting an Australian Energy Fast Forward Summit (EFFS) on 21 February 2019.
Key international and national leaders will present at the summit, which is focused on speeding up the rapid move to renewable energy and opportunities in the global low carbon economy. Speakers include CEO of the UN’s Sustainable Energy for All Rachel Kyte (keynote videolink), the Clean Energy Fund’s Danny Kennedy (in person), California Energy Commissioner David Hochschild (in person), and former Clean Energy Finance Corporation CEO Oliver Yates (in person).
Bring global leaders together to share their insights about actively working to speed the uptake of renewable energy through project development, investment, integrated systems, regional market development, innovation and technology.
Combine the efforts of our community by bringing together hundreds of audience members, business leaders and presenters working in Australia’s fastest growing new economic sector: low-carbon and renewable energy. We will provide attendees with an opportunity to develop a strong and active network of like-minded people, striving to make an impact.
Facilitate the development of an overarching plan of action to be presented to other companies and communities, encouraging a commitment to 100% renewable energy.
“This will be a major new event on the calendar for all involved in the transition to a low-carbon economy and who are interested in building power in Australia for the sector.”
Blair Palese – Co-Founder, 350 Australia
The one-day summit will be structured with a number of international and Australian keynote speakers and a series of panel discussions on timely topics related to a low-carbon economy transition including how to build power for the sector, ramping up investment in low carbon technologies and projects,
Sessions will be held on developing large-scale renewable energy projects, investment and financing, the challenge of misinformation from a Government and media perspective as well as a focus on trailblazers and risk takers. There will be several break-out sessions throughout the day.
Tickets are at AUD$295 for all sessions, lunch and a cocktail reception which will provide network-building opportunities for attendees and participants.
