17th Energy in Western Australia Conference

The Energy in WA Conference is the State’s premier energy event, offering excellent speaker programs and value for money since 1996.

The 2017 theme is The new energy cycle: Opportunity, Innovation & Change. Speakers will assess the state of play on a range of energy matters, such as fuels, technology, market and legislative developments, supply and security, emissions, and consumer trends while looking to the future. Delegates can look forward to thoughtful sector analysis and a “think tank”approach to panel discussions.

Proudly hosted by the Australian Institute of Energy (Perth branch) and the Department of Finance, Public Utilities Office (Government of Western Australia), the highly popular conference is organised by the local energy industry for the local energy industry.

Prominent state, national and international speakers are chosen to provide new perspectives on current events and topics relevant to the Western Australia energy sector.

PUMPED HYDRO ENERGY STORAGE CONFERENCE @ Swissôtel Sydney
Aug 29 all-day

PUMPED HYDRO CONFERENCE

Informa Australia is delighted to announce the forthcoming Pumped Hydro Energy Storage conference. At a pivotal time for the energy market in Australia, the recent announcement that the Federal Government is looking to develop a $2 billion expansion of the Snowy Hydro scheme has brought to the forefront of debate the potential for pumped hydro solutions. In addition to this the Federal Government’s recent announcement of funding a $450,000 grant to Energy Australia to develop a pumped hydro energy storage project in South Australia, has certainly raised the profile of the potential for this technology to be rolled out.

Bringing together key experts in this rapidly changing field, this will be a unique event at which to explore the opportunities for future growth.

PRESENTATIONS FROM:
  • Stephen Davy, Chief Executive Officer, Hydro Tasmania
  • Ivor Frischknecht, Chief Executive Officer, ARENA
  • Simon Brooker, Executive Director, Corporate and Project Finance, CEFC
  • Dr Roger Dargaville, Deputy Director,

HIGH VOLTAGE EARTHING WORKSHOP – MELBOURNE @ Rydges on Swanston
Aug 30 all-day
IDC LOGO
The AS 2067:2016 High Voltage Standard provides minimum requirements for the design and installation of high voltages above 1kV (ac) so as to provide appropriate safety and performance over the assets entire life.
High voltage installations can range from a substation, auxiliary systems, interconnecting cables/lines and naturally the user’s facilities such a plant, factory, office facility and mine site. Equipment includes switchgear, transformers, converters, cables, lines, batteries, earthing systems, capacitors, reactors, buildings and structures.
Most sections of AS 2067 have changed and this workshop will focus on those changes related to earthing. The earthing section has being considerably amended and expanded to cover all industry sectors, including mining, which previously relied on AS/NZ 3007.
This workshop will work through the earthing changes in detail starting from why change was required, through what the changes really mean, and importantly, what each workshop participant should be changing or doing to meet the new obligations. Significant changes were also made to sections on access areas and protection against fire and explosions and these will be given a brief overview.
Who should attend:
• Substation engineers and technicians
• Generation, transmission engineers and technicians
• Electrical engineers, technicians and electricians
• maintenance engineers and asset managers
• plant, project and design engineers
• Industrial organisations with high HV electrical distribution
• Engineering and safety managers
• Government safety regulators/inspectors
• Network, protection and distribution engineers and technicians
• Risk assessors
• maintenance specialists
• Earthing specialists
And all other engineering professionals who have an interest in HV design, standards, installations, operations and maintenance.
