This year the Australian Clean Energy Summit will share the stage with Energy Next, where the renewables crowd can learn about tomorrow’s technology.

As the clean energy transition accelerates in Australia, NSW is gearing up to become a clean energy superpower. The state’s Electricity Infrastructure Bill will deliver 12GW of new renewable energy generation across five Renewable Energy Zones and 2GW of energy storage capacity by 2030. The NSW Government has also announced the $750 million Net Zero Industry and Innovation Program to support the development of clean technologies, help slash the emissions of existing industries and establish green hydrogen hubs.

Coinciding with NSW’s ambitious plan, an exciting clean energy event is coming to ICC in Sydney on July 13 and 14. Energy Next is a free-to-attend B2B exhibition showcasing the latest clean energy innovation and technologies, which will be held for the first time alongside Clean Energy Council’s  Australian Clean Energy Summit.

The addition of Energy Next to the Australian Clean Energy Summit will form the most comprehensive clean energy event in NSW, generating even further conversations and connections to improve clean energy generation and adoption in the country.

“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 CEO Kane Thornton.

“It will also help to increase collaboration across the industry, giving technology suppliers the chance 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.”

Two for one

Energy Next is organised by the same people behind All-Energy Australia, the largest renewable energy event in the country. Across two days, Energy Next will bring a quality exhibition to NSW and provide workshops and networking opportunities for those 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 is well-positioned to cater to the NSW clean energy market,” said Energy Next portfolio director Robby Clark.

“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 industry developments.”

Energy Next’s exhibition will feature the latest renewable energy and energy management technologies and solutions from leading suppliers. Exhibitors include AC Solar Warehouse, Fimer, Italwind, NEXTracker, NHP, Prosun Solar, Shoals Technologies, SMA Australia and Solar Analytics.

Visitors to Energy Next will also have free access to sessions and workshops, with expert speakers discussing the latest technical issues and opportunities facing the industry. The program will focus on three themes: products, innovations and new clean energy sources set to change how we generate and use power; what our energy mix looks like today and how we’re making progress in shifting towards a low-carbon energy system, and; the impetus to drive R&D in renewable energy projects and initiatives forward.

An extensive range of topics will be covered in the technical sessions including hydrogen energy, electric vehicles, next generation solar energy technology, fuel cell technology, integration of existing infrastructure and much more.

With Energy Next’s strategic partnership with the Clean Energy Council, the event will host the Clean Energy Council’s Solar Masterclass, a one-stop shop for solar installers to get their fix of expert advice on the big design and installation issues facing the industry. Installers and designers will also be able to earn CPD points and hear the latest updates on standards and compliance issues.

Energy Next is proudly supported by the NSW Government. With the state government’s support, Energy Next will strengthen the renewable energy community in NSW and help drive Australia’s clean energy transition.

Energy Next will be held July 13 to 14 at the ICC Sydney. To access the program and register for free, visit
