The Australian Financial Review is pleased to present the fourth annual Energy and Climate Summit on 7-8 October 2020 at the Sofitel Sydney Wentworth.

Bringing together over 300 key industry stakeholders – political leaders, regulators, energy producers, disrupters, and users – this comprehensive, two-day event is a critical platform for the nation’s highest-level discussions of Australia’s energy challenges and opportunities.

Join us as we work to determine a stable policy framework for providing more investment certainty, reducing carbon emissions, securing reliable power supply, and lowering prices.

Key topics to include:

  • Beyond policy uncertainty – Shaping a competitive and affordable energy market in Australia
  • Redefining the role of government and industry in the quest for a low carbon future
  • Understanding and engaging customers and communities
  • What role should the regulators play in a new energy market?
  • Ensuring sufficient gas supply to the domestic market without market distortions
  • Future energy mix – the outlook for renewable energy in Australia and what does a renewable future mean for system reliability?
  • The role of hydrogen in a carbon-constrained global economy and the opportunities for Australia
  • What role does the grid play in the development of new generation resources – and how will it do this?
  • Thinking about solutions – Innovative end-users initiatives
  • Capital investment and new financing models — What are the major concerns for investors looking to fund Australian generation assets?

“There are currently not many more important issues in Australia than the future of our energy sector”
– Michael Rath, National Leader for Power and Utilities, Deloitte
