Event overview

Amid rapid transition across the electricity sector shaped by new technology, evolving distribution models, and the continuing transition to a lower emissions economy; policymakers remain committed to securing electricity supply in homes and workplaces.

Recent power outages in parts of Australia highlight that it is critical that households and industry have a resilient electricity system that is supported by a reliable and diverse energy mix. In South Australia, power outages experienced in September 2016 were estimated by some to have cost businesses $367 million.

CEDA's NSW Energy Series returns with keynote addresses from two leaders making their inaugural addresses to NSW-based CEDA members. This event will examine:

  • The role of a responsible and reliable energy mix in securing NSW's energy future;
  • Policy priorities across the role of coal, gas and renewables, battery storage and emerging technologies, market competition, demand management and energy efficiency; and
  • The myth of the 'silver bullet' and urgent actions to respond to rapid technological changes in the energy sector.
