Energy Consumers Australia’s annual Foresighting Forum is our flagship event that brings together senior representatives from across the energy sector to work on the issues affecting consumers and small business.
“Australia’s electricity affordability issues have been a long time in the making and will be a long time in the solving” Rod Sims, Chair ACCC, September 2017
The central theme for Foresighting Forum 2018 is “Take charge: Shifting power to consumers in the using, making and trading of energy”.
Date: 28 February to 1 March, 2018
Venue: Aerial Function Centre, University of Technology, Sydney.
Confirmed speakers include:
- John Pierce, Chair of the Australian Energy Market Commission
- Peter Strong, Chief Executive Officer of the Council of Small Business of Australia
- Gavin Dufty, Manager Policy and Research, St Vincent de Paul Society
Over 150 participants will explore, from a consumer perspective, the opportunities and challenges for consumers to manage their energy bills now, as well as the policies and reforms that over the longer-term will be necessary to make energy affordable and reliable, as well as to spur innovation.
Day One will start at the ground level, unpacking the issues consumers are facing now, and moving on to exploring the role that energy efficiency and energy management technology, services and support can and must play in the successful transformation of the sector.
Day Two will zoom out, exploring the linkages between new opportunities for consumers, including the potential for selling and trading energy, with the work being undertaken through the Energy Council to safeguard reliability and affordability.
*Please note that the confirmed speakers are subject to change.

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.
- Rack-It Right: Maintaining and Handling Energised and Un-energised Switchboards and Equipment
- Reviewing Your Electrical Incident Rescue Procedures for Effective Recovery in the Event of an Arc Flash Incident
- Conducting Risk Assessments for the Early Detection of Arc Flash
- Establishing Clear Administrative Controls and Minimum PPE Requirements in a Fluctuating Environment
- Training and Educating Your Team to Eliminate Errors and Cultivate a Safer Workplace Culture
EESA’s National Electric Energy Conference 2018
The Electric Energy Society of Australia (EESA) takes great pleasure in inviting you to EECON 2018 at the Royal International Convention Centre, Brisbane on 5 & 6 April 2018.
Our 2018 conference theme is “Connected Futures – The power of working together”

This conference continues the discussion from EECON 2017 in Melbourne and examines industry and customer developments in adopting and integrating technologies to deliver sustainable, affordable and reliable energy. The need for all segments of the industry to work together to deliver these outcomes for the benefit of all stakeholders will be explored.
We are expecting more than 200 delegates from all aspect of the value chain across Australia and overseas during the 2018 Commonwealth Games period. We commence our conference on Thursday 5 April, the day after the Opening Ceremony and conclude on Friday 6 April with time to enjoy Brisbane and surrounds as well as catch a few Commonwealth Games events.
Please come and join us in Brisbane and contribute to the developments in collaboration within the energy industry as it progresses towards improved outcomes for all participants through working together. We plan to showcase and share the benefits to customers through this collaboration.
The conference will include senior industry speakers, special guests with two streams: one focused on technical developments and integration for generation and network applications and the other on customer applications their integration into networks and market operation.
We look forward to seeing you at EECON 2018.

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.
