The 2nd annual NEM Future Forum 2015 Sydney

Implications of new technologies, shifting consumer behaviour and policy uncertainty for the east coast energy sector

The NEM is currently undergoing an unprecedented shift, likely changing the very way in which market participants interact. Traditionally electricity has been a one way street, with large industrial scale generators transferring electricity to homogenous consumers through the transmission and distribution networks. Now, technological innovation and a need to decarbonise our energy markets are creating a situation whereby consumers are able to generate electricity locally and feed electricity back into the grid. This is intensifying the challenge of delivering a secure supply during peak usage periods, distorting market signals and impacting affordability for many consumers, not to mention fundamentally transforming the future for traditional suppliers of stationary energy.

The critical questions are how to ensure that these consumers can interact with the market in an efficient manner and how we can best bring about this change. This is why it is critical that all stakeholders come together to address, discuss and prepare for the raft of changes expected to affect every east-coast energy market participant.

The NEM Future Forum 2015, chaired by industry expert Keith Orchison, will bring together local and international thought leaders from the length of the energy supply chain to explore the raft of issues currently facing the National Electricity Market, in an informative and interactive manner.
