AUSTRALIAN ENERGY STORAGE CONFERENCE 2018 @ Adelaide Convention Centre
May 23 – May 24 all-day

Screen shot 2017-11-16 at 2.51.25 PM

Australian Energy Storage Conference and Exhibition 2018

Call for Abstracts | Now Open

The fifth annual Australian Energy Storage Conference and Exhibition (AES 2018) will take place in Adelaide, 23 – 24 May 2018, in partnership with the Government of South Australia. If you have not yet read the letter of support from the Hon. Jay Weatherill MP, please do so here.

The diversity of this market exemplifies the importance of the many different applications, use cases, and technologies that make up the Energy Storage umbrella. This is not a ‘one size fits all’ technology, but rather offers a ‘solution to fit every situation.’  The common outcome of energy storage, regardless of the energy source, is increased sustainability. This can be the financial sustainability of a business through lower operating costs and efficiency or environmental sustainability by enabling higher penetrations of renewable energy and lowering carbon emissions. In that vein, the theme of AES 2018 is Storing Energy for a Sustainable Future, which will take a wide focus on the technologies that will help us achieve these desired results.

AES 2018 call for abstracts are now open. All submissions will be reviewed and accepted based on merit. Final session themes will be moulded around the accepted presentations rather than the other way around. To view the full list of topics or to submit an abstract please click here.

Jun 5 – Jun 7 all-day

EnergyNetworksbanner

Energy Networks Australia is delighted to announce that our biennial Conference and Exhibition will be held in Sydney at the International Convention Centre from Tuesday 5 to Thursday 7 June 2018.

Energy Networks 2018 will be the leading forum for energy networks and their partners in Australia in 2018.

The landscape for the energy network sector has shifted dramatically with major changes in technology, customer behaviour and regulation. Energy networks are leading the transformation of the grid into a platform for new products and services — empowering customers with new information, new tools and new ways to cut costs.

This is your opportunity to be part of this critical national conversation on the future of the energy grid.

We look forward to welcoming you to Sydney in 2018.

29TH MINE ELECTRICAL SAFETY CONFERENCE – MESC @ Pullman Mercure Brisbane King George Square
Jul 9 – Jul 11 all-day

MESC

The Mine Electrical Safety Association announces their 29th Mine Electrical Safety Conference (MESC) at the Pullman Mercure King George Square Hotel, Brisbane from Monday 9th to Wednesday 11th July 2018.

The formation of the MESA was the first of its kind in Queensland, being established well before the industry focus on safety. For over 25 years the MESA Association or MESC (Mine Electrical Safety Committee as it was originally known as) has been an integral conduit between the working face of the industry – suppliers and government departments in identifying electrical safety problems and by consultation, provide information with a view to improving safety and productivity.

From humble beginnings at the first conference, which was held at Blackwater mine in central Queensland with just a handful of delegates, this event is now seen as the premier Electrical Mining Safety Conference in Queensland.

The event brings together government departments, consultants, suppliers and key industry decision makers within the electrical field to hear technical presentations on all matters relating to electrical safety within the mining industry. A trade exhibition for the benefit of the delegates is also conducted in conjunction with the conference.

This year we will be seeking submissions for the Ken Innes Perpetual award as well as the innovation award.

By far the showcase achievement of the association is the continued development of the annual conference and trade exhibition, but this has not been the only issue tackled, other focuses have been on safety of hand held meters for electrical testing, welding safety and maintenance of a nominated electrical position within legislation.

Wednesday 25th & Thursday 26th July 2018
Mercure Sydney

More Sessions, More Presenters, More Networking – Australia’s BEST SCADA event

The National SCADA Conference is the premier event for Australia & NZ’s SCADA sectors. It is an annual event to bring the industry together, network, share stories and experiences. Filled with case studies of real implementations and presentations from the best and brightest SCADA practitioners this is an event not to be missed.

The exceptional line up of presenters includes:

Sam Chard, Assistant Secretary, Home Affairs
Dr Kenneth Radke, Senior Technical Advisor, CERT Australia
Dr Stephen Beckwith, Manager Water Conveyance Design, Water Corporation WA
Robbie Cook, Information Management Architect, Transgrid
Mark Loney, Executive Manager, Operations, Services and Technologies Branch, ACMA
Jamie Gabb, Manager National Integrated Operations Centre, APA Group

There is a need to allow vendors to access critical infrastructure control system sites remotely, to assist with emergency maintenance of their products. Recently, countries across the world have realised that by granting remote access to the vendors, they are putting their critical infrastructure in the hands of a foreign country. While the vendors themselves may be trusted, there remain many other issues including opening connections from the control systems to the Internet, and cross contamination between sites and countries that the vendor provides support to.

WORKSHOP 3: CYBER RISK IN REMOTE VENDOR ACCESS
This workshop will aim to develop a protocol which allows emergency remote vendor access, while providing heightened security to the rail operator. Topics covered and explored in the workshop will include the need for the protocol, concepts for the design of the protocol, and known issues with implementing the finished protocol.

Dr Kenneth Radke, Senior Technical Advisor, CERT Australia

Hear groundbreaking new insights from industry leaders who’ve walked the walk, made the journey and learned the lessons of how to achieve best practice, reliable and cost effective implementations that work.

National SCADA Conference is inspirational, educational and eminently exciting.
