“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:

- 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.

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.
