About the event
As the industry looks to decarbonise, clever engineering, new tech and new systems are needed to build and manage increasingly distributed and intermittent generation sources.
The content in the EEF has been designed with professionals actively involved in day-to-day operations in mind, with a focus on transmission, distribution and generation.
If you are an asset, engineering or procurement manager involved in the day-to-day operations of plants or networks, or planning new projects, then this is for you.
Some of the key speakers include:
· Dr David Pointing PhD, Chief Executive Officer, The Australian Power Institute
· Alan Louis, Principal Engineer Technology Innovation Ergon, Energy & Energex
· Jacqui Mills, Head of Virtual Power Plants, Clipsal Solar
· Craig Stallan, Executive Manager – Delivery, TransGrid
· Janica Lukas, Distribution Grid Strategy & Planning Manager, Western Power
· Gregory Abramowitz, Head of Orchestration - Platform & Operations, AGL Energy
· Kate Cavanagh, Energy Systems Research & Testing Facilities Leader, CSIRO
