EVENT OVERVIEW

Australia's energy sector is undergoing seismic change.

The expanded Renewable Energy Target (RET), in conjunction with other climate change policy mechanisms, will require an unprecedented increase in Australia's use of renewable energy technologies and will herald a substantial restructuring of Australia's energy supply system.

The system will need to accommodate a more diverse mix of fuels and technologies and it will be important for the physical and regulatory features of Australia's electricity system and market to adapt.

While this represents a substantial challenge, it is also a significant investment and economic opportunity.
