Across two days in July, the anticipated Energy Next exhibition in Sydney will showcase the latest clean energy innovation and technologies, and connect thought leaders, businesses and organisations to explore Australia’s clean energy future.

The free event will be held in conjunction with the Clean Energy Council’s Australian Clean Energy Summit at the International Convention Centre (ICC Sydney) on 19-20 July. The addition of Energy Next to the Australian Clean Energy Summit will form the most comprehensive renewables event in NSW, generating conversations and connections to improve Australia’s clean energy generation and adoption.

“The combination of Energy Next with the Australian Clean Energy Summit offers significant added value by giving attendees first-hand exposure to the technologies and innovations driving Australia’s clean energy transition,” says Clean Energy Council chief executive Kane Thornton.

“It will also help to increase collaboration across the industry, giving technology suppliers the opportunity to create connections and explore opportunities with the industry’s most senior executives and decision makers. The Clean Energy Council is delighted to welcome Energy Next to the Australian Clean Energy Summit and is looking forward to a fantastic event in July.”

Energy Next is organised by Reed Exhibitions, the same team behind All-Energy Australia, the largest renewable energy event in Australia. During the two-day event, Energy Next will deliver workshops and networking opportunities for people working in the clean energy industry.

“With NSW’s exciting plans to shift to renewables, Energy Next’s inaugural edition arrives on the industry’s calendar at an important time, and it is well positioned to cater to the NSW clean energy market,” says Robby Clark, portfolio director at Energy Next.

“The event is set to be the destination in NSW for the industry to connect with suppliers face-to-face, collaborate with peers, and learn from industry experts about the latest developments. We’re proud to be partnering with the Clean Energy Council in delivering an event that can help build the future of NSW’s clean energy industry.”

The Energy Next exhibition will feature the latest renewable energy and energy management technologies and solutions from leading suppliers, from solar PV and energy storage, to EV charging stations and energy monitoring software.

The event will also host the Clean Energy Council’s Solar Masterclass, a one-stop shop for solar installers to get expert advice on the big design and installation issues facing the industry, including talks on safety and compliance, and metrics. Installers and designers will also be able to earn CPD points and hear the latest updates on standards and compliance issues.

Visitors to Energy Next will enjoy free access to sessions and workshops with expert speakers. The program will focus on three key themes:

  • Technology: Products, innovations and new clean energy sources set to change how we generate and use power.
  • The future energy mix: What our energy mix looks like today and how we’re making progress in shifting towards a low-carbon energy system.
  • Research and development: The impetus to drive forward renewable energy projects and initiatives.

An extensive range of topics will be covered in the technical sessions, including hydrogen energy, electric vehicles, battery storage and digital transformation.

Energy Next is proudly supported by the NSW Government. Its support coincides with the state’s Electricity Infrastructure Roadmap, and $750 million Net Zero Industry and Innovation Program, demonstrating its commitment to Australia’s clean energy transition.

Energy Next will be held from 19-20 July, 2022, at ICC Sydney. To access the program and for free registration, visit energynext.com.au.
