overview

Event Partners

The Tasmanian Energy Development Conference is going virtual!

While there is no replacement for a physical forum, we have made this call with the safety and surety of our delegates and supporters in mind. To ensure that you still received the quality of forum you have come to expect from us, we will be running this event on our interactive online platform, Brella, which allows intelligent networking by enabling delegates to curate who they network with – prioritising like-minded individuals and those interested in pursuing similar goals at the event.

So join us live and on-demand for a unique networking opportunity and an inside look at how Tasmania is working to transform the NEM and support its renewable transition through additional interconnection, time and seasonally shifted generation, the potential for deep storage, and delivering on Australia’s hydrogen future – while ensuring regional jobs and development across Tasmania and Southern Victoria.

Key Topics:

  • Analysis of the ISP and how it will shape Marinus, Battery of the Nation and the wider NEM
  • Updates from renewable developers on their operational assets and proposed projects
  • Commentary from government representatives on state & federal initiatives
  • The Hydrogen Economy: Tasmania’s nation-leading plan to support industry and create an export hub by 2030
  • Investment opportunities and attractive capital in the current climate
  • Developing the skills capacity required for major energy projects
  • Stakeholder representation and strategies to ensure local content and local jobs for the regions we operate in
