Registrations are now open for the National Energy Efficiency Conference 2017, which will take place on 20 – 21 November at Pullman and Mercure Melbourne Albert Park.
Now in its ninth year, the National Energy Efficiency Conference is Australia’s premier annual event on energy efficiency, bringing together up to 400 efficiency leaders, innovators, energy users and policy makers.
Our theme for 2017 – Security, Affordability, Productivity – underlines the growing recognition that smart demand side investments are the quickest and cheapest way to solve Australia’s energy crisis, and keep our energy system reliable and affordable.
Californian Energy Commissioner Andrew McAllister is a leader in a state that has been aggressively pursuing energy efficiency opportunities for over 30 years. He is a passionate advocate for balancing the move to low carbon generation with smart demand side investments, to ensure energy remains affordable for businesses and households.
Commissioner McAllister has been a trailblazer in clean energy policy and programs for his entire 25-year career. He has developed and operated energy efficiency initiatives for utilities, undertaken policy research for the Californian and US Governments, and ran two of California’s signature energy programs (VicCalifornia Solar Initiative and Self-Generation Incentive Program). He currently serves on the Board of Directors of the National Association of State Energy Officials (NASEO) and the US Alliance to Save Energy.
Commissioner McAllister’s active role in California and deep grounding in technology, policy and energy markets gives him a unique insight into the transformation taking place in energy systems in Australia and around the world.
