The Clean Energy Council’s Women in Renewables Luncheon returns to All-Energy Australia on Wednesday, 25 October, as part of a packed schedule at the nation’s biggest clean energy event at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
Anna Hancock, executive director of Pollination Group, will chair the Women in Renewables Luncheon panel, which will discuss issues under the umbrella theme of “82 per cent and beyond: An economy-wide perspective”.
Pollination Group is a specialist climate change investment and advisory firm, “accelerating the transition to a net-zero, nature-positive future”. Hancock will lead the discussion on responsibilities and expectations as Australia charts its path to 82 per cent renewable energy by 2030 and net-zero emissions by 2050.
Renewable energy is the catalyst for economic transformation that will affect every industry. To achieve the nation’s clean energy target by 2030, it is crucial other industries adopt a fresh energy perspective to support the transition.
The urgency of the task requires all facets of the economy to work together to achieve decarbonisation of our energy system. This includes upstream and downstream industries such as manufacturing, mining, and energy management, as well as industries one step removed, such as higher education, transport and the tech sector.
These are some of the issues the diverse mix of women leaders on the luncheon’s panel will address.
The Clean Energy Council’s Women in Renewables Luncheon is held on Wednesday, 25 October, 2023, from 12pm to 2pm at Goldfields Theatre, Door 13, Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
