Solar Conferences Coming Up!

There are a lot of influential people talking about Solar Power and they will all engage in progressive and hopefully productive discussions over the course of the following conferences:

ATRAA Conference 2010 (4-7th August, 2010)

ATRAA, Australia’s largest solar industry conference, will take place at the Alice Springs Convention Centre this week!

ATRAA stands for the Appropriate Technology Retailers Association of Australia and has been running for 33 years. Today ATRAA delivers the biggest solar industry event in Australia, attracting a range of delegates, from business leaders, suppliers and installers, to students, trainers, teachers and manufacturers, both locally and globally.

Spanning four days with a range of technical demonstrations and industry seminars, delegates will once again have the opportunity to take part in the highly successful Professional Development Day

Financial Review National Energy Conference 2010 (15th August, 2010)

Australia may not have a carbon pollution reduction scheme (CPRS), but it still faces the same challenges of rising demand for energy and for further development of export coal, oil and gas.

The Financial Review National Energy Conference features a focused one-day format to bring you up to date on how Australia’s energy future is unfolding and will bring together key energy industry leaders, financiers, consultants and policy makers. If there is one day you should invest in learning about the energy industry with a relevant and broad selection of topics and speakers willing to share their knowledge and learning’s brought to you by the Financial Review – then this is it.

Confirmed Speakers include:

  • Nino Ficca, Managing Director, SP AusNet
  • Michael Fraser, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, AGL Energy Limited
  • Albert Goller, Chairman and Managing Director, Siemens Australia Ltd
  • Gerry Grove-White, Managing Director, Geodynamics Australia
  • John Harkins, Executive Chairman and Managing Director, Clean Global Energy
  • Richard McIndoe, Chief Executive Officer, TRUenergy
  • Nick Otter, Chief Executive Officer, The Global Carbon Capture and Storage Institution (Global CCS Institute)
  • Julian Thornton, Managing Director, Peabody Energy Australia
  • Richard Wagner, Head of Investment Banking, Morgan Stanley Australia

All Energy Australia 2010 (6-7 October, 2010)

The All Energy Australia conference is a free-to-delegate, business-to-business exhibition, conference and networking forum showcasing renewable energy, clean coal, carbon sequestration and energy efficiency. It targets no single solution, but embraces all opportunities within the clean energy market.

The exhibition is highly relevant to all companies actively involved, either directly or indirectly, in the development of carbon mitigation solutions for traditional energy sources, including carbon capture and sequestration, energy efficiency improvements as well as all areas of the renewable energy industry: wind (onshore and offshore), wave, tidal, hydro, hydrogen and fuel cells, solar and biofuels.

We will keep you posted on any big findings that come out of these conferences in the months to come!
