The Inaugural Australian Hydrogen Energy Summit @ Novotel Melbourne
Mar 26 – Mar 27 all-day

Screen Shot 2019-01-15 at 10.24.06 AM

Informa Australia is delighted to announce the forthcoming inaugural Australian Hydrogen Energy Summit which will take place on the 26-27 March 2019 at the Novotel Melbourne on Collins. This event will examine the commercialisation of hydrogen technology for Australia’s energy future.

This important industry conference is being driven by the many new developments in the energy sector. As the push for renewable energy continues and governments continue to seek out new technology, hydrogen energy and fuel cell technology has begun to emerge as a major future energy source. However, there are barriers to market activation which stem from a lack of supporting infrastructure. The Australian Hydrogen Energy Summit will explore ways in which the private and public sector are working to commercialise this exciting new technology to promote our energy future.

Topics will include:

  • Technology outlook
  • Policy landscape
  • Commercialisation initiatives
  • Case studies
  • International developments

Earthing, Lightning & Surge Protection Seminar @ Mercure Perth
Apr 9 – Apr 10 all-day

Few topics generate as much controversy and debate as that of earthing and the associated topics of surge protection, shielding and lightning protection of electrical and electronic systems. Poor earthing practices can be the cause of continual and intermittent difficult-to-diagnose problems in a facility. This seminar will explore these issues from a fresh yet practical perspective to help delegates reduce expensive downtime in their plant and/or equipment by identifying the correct application of these principles.

The aim of this seminar is to demystify the subject of earthing, lightning and surge protection and present the subject in a clear, straightforward manner. Earthing as a subject has been under-represented over the years and this event will attempt to remedy the gaps in technical knowledge and improve practices in the industry.

This seminar will feature four half day workshops on the following topics:

April 9th – Workshop 1 – Lightning Protection – Phil Jones, Erico
April 9th – Workshop 2 – Static Electricity and Lightning – Cem Novella, Static Electricity Control (SEC) & Lightning Protection EPC (LPEPC)
April 10th – Workshop 3 – Surge Protection – Phil Jones, Erico
April 10th – Workshop 4 – Earthing and Power Systems – PowerEarth Technologies

Your Presenters:

Phil Jones – Principal Engineer, ERICO
Phil Jones holds BE (Hons) and MTech, and has nearly 30 years’ experience in Facility Electrical Protection.  Phil is Chairman of Standards Australia’s Surge Arrester Committee EL007-03 and is the Australian representative on the International IEC SC37A Surge Protection committee.  Phil is an active member of the Australian Standards Lightning Protection committee EL024, responsible for producing the Australian Standard for Lightning Protection, AS1768, in 2007, and presently under revision. In his current role as Principal Engineer, in the ERICO Engineering Department, Phil serves as a Surge and Lightning Protection field expert and as a technical contact for key customers for product support, in addition to working on new product developments.

Cem Novella – Managing Director | Static Electricity Control (SEC) & Meech Australia Static Control (MASC)
Cem is the current chair for the Centre for Static Electricity & Lightning Protection (CSELP) and provides technical support and guidance to various industry groups and committees in relation to static electricity control and lightning protection. As static electricity and lightning affects a wide spectrum of global industrial and manufacturing processes, Cem has worked on a diverse range of static electricity and lightning protection control programs for applications in locations as far away as Mawson Station in Antarctica, Saudi Arabia, Chile and PNG.
In Australia Cem continues to raise awareness of static electricity and lightning amongst the broader industrial and manufacturing sectors in the hope that in the not too distant future, every site in Australia will be required to adopt an appropriate static electricity and lightning protection control plan.

Registrations for this event will open shortly. For more information or to register your interest in attending please contact IDC Technologies on 1300 138 522 or via email at

Power Australia Conference & Expo @ International Convention Centre Sydney
Apr 10 – Apr 11 all-day
Power Australia Conference & Expo @ International Convention Centre Sydney
Power Australia 2019 – The Proper Energy Mix for the Next Ten Years and the Impact on Costs to the Consumer

Following the success of the inaugural event, Power Australia Conference & Exhibition will be back in 2019 and will take place at the ICC Sydney from April 10 – 11 2019.

Power Australia is the first industry event to focus on solutions and strategies across the entire electricity value chain.  With the traditional industry silos disappearing industry executives from all segments of the industry must adopt a “whole of system” approach to meet the unique challenges facing the electric power market in Australia.

The industry is at a critical point in its transformation as the transition from traditional fossil fuels to renewable technology as well as to distributed generation and microgrids continues.  The complexities of the fast developing generation, distribution and consumption convergence is changing the industry beyond recognition.

In 2018, the Power Australia Conference was extraordinarily well received bringing together a renowned group of top executive speakers from Australia and around the world.  The products displayed in our exhibition attracted top level executives and power engineers from across the spectrum looking for the latest technology and solutions for the industry. The conference addressed the convergence underway between the power generation and transmission & distribution sectors, driven by digitalization, decarbonization, decentratization and electrification.

In 2019 Power Australia will expand on these themes, addressing the creation of advanced solutions across the entire electricity value network that has the end use customer as a central focus.
