INTERNATIONAL PARTNERSHIP TO SUPERCHARGE DISCUSSION AT NATIONAL ENERGY EFFICIENCY CONFERENCE 2016
Today the Energy Efficiency Council (EEC) announced that the National Energy Efficiency Conference 2016, Australia’s premier event dedicated to energy efficiency, distributed generation and demand management, will be delivered in collaboration with the International Energy Agency’s Energy in Buildings and Communities Programme (EBC).
As one of the IEA’s international technology collaboration programmes, the EBC carries out research and development focusing on the integration of energy efficient and sustainable technologies into healthy buildings and communities.
INTERNATIONAL KEYNOTE SPEAKER ANNOUNCED
Dr Brian Motherway, Head of Energy Efficiency at the International Energy Agency, is the first international keynote speaker to be announced for this year's event. Dr Motherway joined the IEA in early 2016 after four years as the CEO of the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland.
Luke Menzel said ‘Brian's visit to Australia for the National Energy Efficiency Conference 2016 is timely, as energy users, providers and policy makers grapple with the waves of new technology transforming Australia's energy sector. Brian will share his insights into the rapid transformation taking place in energy systems around the world, and the critical role energy efficiency is playing in this transition.'
The International Energy Agency is at the heart of global dialogue on energy, providing authoritative statistics and analysis on critical energy issues, including energy efficiency.
The National Energy Efficiency Conference 2016 takes place at Australian Technology Park, Sydney, on 15-16 November 2016. For more information, click here.
