The year’s biggest renewable energy exhibition and conference brings all the latest in ideas and technology to Melbourne. Don’t miss it.
Australia’s largest clean and renewable energy event, All-Energy Australia, is back for 2017 with a packed two-day program of speakers, exhibitors, networking events and professional development opportunities.
Held in partnership with the Clean Energy Council, All-Energy Australia offers delegates unrivalled access to the latest technology, information and trends relevant to those working in or investing in the renewable energy sector.
Exhibition director Robby Clark said All-Energy Australia remained the most comprehensive clean and renewable energy event in the country. “More than 4,500 industry professionals came to All-Energy Australia 2016, which was our largest attendance record to date. We’re confident this year’s program will maintain the event’s reputation as a must-see for 2017,” he said.
Clean Energy Council CEO Kane Thornton underlined the importance of the event to the industry. “As well as providing a fantastic opportunity to look back on a record-breaking year, All-Energy Australia is held at a perfect time to look ahead to the challenges that will come our way in 2018,” Thornton said.
“It’s been an unprecedented year for our industry, with dozens of projects underway. These add up to about $8 billion of investment and are set to create thousands of new jobs.”
As part of the conference, the Clean Energy Council will also host the Solar Masterclass Series: one of the most comprehensive professional development programs for solar installers in the country.
More than 120 speakers are confirmed for this year’s free-to-attend conference program. Sessions have been structured around three key focus areas:
