The Clean Energy Council has called for speakers for the 2017 Australian Clean Energy Summit in Sydney, an event which will take place in the middle of a busy year for the renewable energy and storage industry.

Clean Energy Council Chief Executive Kane Thornton said the industry was already ramping up for a busy year, as a series of major projects gear up to begin construction under the national Renewable Energy Target (RET) and a variety of state schemes.

“The 2016 summit was a sell-out and featured a thought-provoking line-up of Australian and international speakers, including state and federal politicians along with business and finance leaders,” Mr Thornton said.

“The Clean Energy Council is inviting potential speakers to submit suggestions for thought-provoking topics to be considered for next year’s program.

“This is an exciting time for the industry, with significant interest from local and overseas investors. Delegates at the conference always appreciate being challenged, illuminated and inspired by insightful presentations,” he said.

The Australian Clean Energy Summit attracts hundreds of renewable energy industry executives, professionals from the business and finance sector, government decision-makers and technical staff to hear the latest updates on politics, policy, business and finance.   

The 2017 event will be held at The Hilton Sydney from 18-19 July, and will attract approximately 80 speakers across six conference streams.

The Clean Energy Council would like to thank Goldwind Australia, which is the major sponsor for the event.
