“The Battery of the Nation and Marinus Link projects are expected to create up to 3,800 direct and indirect jobs during construction and deliver an economic stimulus up to $7 billion.”

As the uptake of renewables continues to surge and aging fossil fuel plants trip during critical demand periods, concerns on energy reliability across the NEM are increasingly on the minds of businesses, politicians and the public – and Tasmania is uniquely placed to address this.

The proposed Project Marinus would see a second interconnector linking Tasmania to the mainland, allowing Tasmania’s ambitious Battery of the Nation initiative to ensure energy security for both the state and the nation, aid the development of additional projects with their eye on export, and prompt the creation of thousands of new jobs.

It is in this atmosphere that Informa Australia are delighted to announce the inaugural Tasmanian Energy Development Conference, held 19-20 June 2019 at the brand new Paranaple Convention Centre, Devonport. Join us for a comprehensive two-day event of national significance featuring government commentary, major project updates, regional development opportunities, and stakeholder discussions, both public and private, across every level – from local to federal.
