All-Energy Australia conference showcases solar

26th Sep 2011

A number of energy specialists from across the globe will make the journey to the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre next month.

The All-Energy Australia Exhibition and Conference will take place over October 12 and 13 - bringing together experts from multiple fields to discuss the world's clean energy future.

With speakers from Denmark, the UK, Korea and many more, the international event is the biggest of its kind in Australia.

The conference is free to attend for those who preregister, which can be done on the events official website.

Solar power will feature prominently, with over 100 speakers and 250 exhibitors scheduled to attend.

The event will also focus on other no-carbon and low-carbon technologies - including wind, wave, bio-fuels and geothermal power.

All-Energy regional director Boyd Dale says: "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."

Professor David Faiman, chairman of the Department of Solar Energy and Environmental Physics at Ben-Gurion University - in addition to being the director of the National Solar Energy Centre in Israel - is amongst the multitude of respected world experts who will speak.

Professor Faiman's wealth of experience in applied solar science will surely benefit those in attendance, drawing on years of experience in the field.

A number of Australian bodies will represent the nation's interests - including the Clean Energy council, Energy Efficiency Council and the Sustainable Energy Association.

A Grand Plenary Debate is scheduled for October 13, which will be moderated by Seb Henblest - Bloomberg's Australian New Energy Finance Manager.

In an interesting twist, the conference will occur on the same day as the government votes on the much-debated carbon price in the House of Representatives.

The timing is likely to spur further debate around national policy, with the bills set to chart a course for Australia's renewable energy future.

Prime minister Julia Gillard will speak at the All-Energy opening via a pre-recorded message to welcome the international guests.
