Energy Efficiency taking a back seat at "All Energy" Conference?
I just read the blurb for the All-Energy Exhibition & Conference coming up in Melbourne. I hope that innovative energy efficiency doesn't get drowned out by all the solar panels, wind turbines and coal companies...
The event showcases no-carbon and low-carbon technologies, including solar, wind, wave, bio-fuels and geothermal power, clean coal and carbon sequestration.
Either way, more than 100 speakers and nearly 250 exhibitors are expected to participate in All-Energy Australia 2011.
Key industry participants include:
- the Clean Energy Council
- the Energy Efficiency Council
- the Sustainable Energy Association
- the Global Carbon Capture and Storage Institute.
The conference sessions on October 12th will focus on:
- Carbon Capture and Storage
- Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology
- Transmission and Distribution
- Embracing Clean Technology in Industry and Government
- Solar Power
- Barriers to Clean and Renewable Energy Development.
Sessions on the second day (October 13th) will address:
- Energy Efficiency
- International Perspective on Clean Energy
- Building an Australian Clean Energy Industry
- Wave and Tidal Energy
- Wind Energy
- Carbon Pricing and Emissions Trading
- Geothermal Energy
- National and International Investment
- Industry Skills and Training.

All-Energy Regional Director Boyd Dale expects as many as 4,000 people to attend.
Attracting top level company executives, captains of industry, engineers, technologists and three levels of government, the event has grown dramatically in size and stature since its inception three years ago. With carbon pricing likely to become a reality in Australia in the near future, All-Energy looks forward to welcoming those interested in best practice in the clean energy sector, whether they are entrenched in the industry, emerging entrepreneurs or concerned professionals looking for low carbon solutions.
Will you be at All-Energy this year? Unfortunately I'll be overseas, so I'd be interested to hear what you thought the highlights were at this year's event.
