The Event

Australia’s energy industry is in the midst of a transition, and nowhere is it more important to get this right, in a responsible and just way for all stakeholders, than for the state of NSW, where coal provides over 80% of its electricity generation.

The traditional business models of hydrocarbon producers and energy utilities are under increasing pressure from a combination of factors, including developments in technology, the emergence of new market actors, changing policy and investment conditions, and the implications of climate change.

With two days of balanced, lively debate and unique perspectives from all stakeholders across the energy supply chain, Re-Powering NSW 2016, taking place from 25-27 October in Sydney, will assess how the incumbents, government, climate agencies, and new entrants are responding to the changes, challenges and opportunities and forecast how smooth the transition is going to be for the State’s economy, communities and consumers.

Key topics include:

  • Developing a forward thinking and coherent direction for the future of NSW energy
  • Understanding the critical role of networks in underpinning a successful transition
  • Assessing all generation options including more efficient fossil fuels and renewables and their role in the state’s energy future
  • Organising a way out of high emission energy resources – for employees, communities, investors and companies
  • Facilitating an orderly transition of ageing assets out of the State’s energy market
  • Opportunities for innovative products and services to disrupt the energy market
  • Getting the right policy and commercial settings to attract investment in new energy infrastructure
  • Analysing consumer behaviour and the future structure of the power market
