The National Energy Efficiency Conference 2016 takes place at Australian Technology Park, Sydney, on 15-16 November 2016.

Dr Brian Motherway, Head of Energy Efficiency at the International Energy Agency, is the first international keynote speaker to be announced for this year’s event. He joined the IEA in early 2016 after four years as the CEO of the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland.

“Brian’s visit to Australia for the National Energy Efficiency Conference 2016 is timely, as energy users, providers and policy makers grapple with the waves of new technology transforming Australia’s energy sector.

“Brian will share his insights into the rapid transformation taking place in energy systems around the world, and the critical role energy efficiency is playing in this transition,” said EEC CEO Luke Menzel.

Mr Menzel said the collaboration with EBC will bring a global perspective to the National Energy Efficiency Conference 2016.

“With so many international experts in Sydney at the same time, this year’s conference will be a unique opportunity for Australian energy efficiency professionals, policymakers and energy users to engage with cutting-edge practice from around the world.”
