Why You Should Attend
Arc flash risk had gained more awareness in Australia recently. In the last year, there have been multiple cases of arc flash incidents in Australia where companies suffered financial losses, as they were fined for not providing a safe working environment. One victim suffered burns and could not work for up to 3 months, which affected the organisation’s operations. In addition, the recent updates on arc flash electrical standards like NFPA 70E and IEEE1585 are providing clearer guidelines in risk assessment, calculations and hazard mitigation. This provides the opportunity for organisations to provide and maintain a safer work environment for their employees.
marcus evans Arc Flash Electrical Safety 2018 conference will look at practical strategies and solutions to overcome arc flash hazards and risk. Delegates will be able to learn from industrial experts on how they have successfully implemented and rolled-out their arc flash programme. In addition, speakers from a wide variety of industries will share their risk assessment strategies to mitigate hazards and optimise PPE selection. Key industrial standards and legislations that will be discussed also include the NFPA 70E 2018 changes, ENA NENS 09-2014, Australian Occupational Health, Safety Act and the Electrical Work Code and many more.

Arc flash is arguably one of the most topical issues being discussed in the electrical engineering community in Australia (especially in the mining, utilities and manufacturing areas). Technology and safety procedures have significantly reduced most other forms of electrical injuries; however, incidents related to arc flash have surfaced as one of the leading causes of injury and death to workers.
The objective of this conference is to provide you with the latest developments and best practice to deal with arc flash hazards in Australia. You will have an opportunity to discuss your arc flash issues with our speakers, and gain practical applications for arc flash safety. The focus throughout is on the experiences of end users. The conference will be attended by those who are interested in technical solutions to their arc flash issues, industry trends, standards developments and new techniques to tackle existing arc flash threats.

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.
