While the Australian Clean Energy Summit has traditionally focused on clean energy in Australia, this year’s summit features a new session that will provide a global perspective on the renewable energy industry.

The Australian renewable energy industry is currently experiencing a period of unprecedented growth, highlighted by last year’s record-breaking results for both large-scale renewables and rooftop solar. However, the renewables boom is not just confined to Australia, with global investment in 2017 at its second-highest ever level.

In recognition of the continued expansion of renewable energy across the globe, this year’s Australian Clean Energy Summit features a session focusing on the international trends and outlooks for the renewable energy and energy storage industries.

Called An international perspective: global trends in renewable energy, the session will feature a panel discussion with senior leaders from some of the world’s most prominent renewable energy companies.

Participating in the panel discussion will be Bob Bellemare, Chief Operating Officer of Array Technologies Inc., the leading US-based manufacturer of solar tracking systems; Morten Dyrholm, Group Senior Global Vice President at Vestas, the world’s largest wind turbine company; Peter McCabe, President and CEO of Onshore Wind at GE, one of the world’s largest industrial conglomerates; Fereidoon Sioshansi, President of Menlo Energy Economics, a world-leading energy consultancy; and Sally Torgoman, Managing Director, Infrastructure Lead Advisory at PwC Australia, one of Australia’s leading professional services firms.

The session will provide attendees with a fascinating insight into the trends in renewable energy and energy storage around the world as the panel members share their expertise and views on the current state of the renewable energy industry and where it is heading in the future.

The 2018 Australian Clean Energy Summit is being held at ICC Sydney from 31 July – 1 August. An international perspective: global trends in renewable energy will take place on Day One of the summit.
