The Australian Energy Industry is undergoing significant transition, and on the back of this Wind Energy is going from strength to strength. 2017 was a standout year for renewable energy – seeing a record $US9 billion in activity and 547MW of new capacity added to the wind sector. Now in 2018, we are already set to dwarf our achievements last year with projects proposed and under construction adding up to more than seven times the amount of work completed in 2017, and the Wind Sector is leading the charge.
From championing community engagement with a predicted $A10.5 billion to be delivered to host communities across the life of current and proposed projects, to setting the standard for innovation; pairing renewable generation and storage to successfully provide FCAS and firming services in a role previously thought the domain of fossil fuels – all while becoming more economical year on year.
It is in this atmosphere that Informa Australia are delighted to announce the 10th Australian Wind Energy & Storage Summit. Featuring project case studies, technical insights, optimisation success stories, and analysis from leading government and industry commentators, this will be the industry gathering and a networking event not to be missed.
