About the Forum

The South Australia blackout last September, though triggered by an extreme and rare weather condition, served as an indication of a challenging future ahead for Australia’s energy network. As power interruption due to extreme weather conditions are occurring at an alarming frequency and Finkel Review indicates that Australia is falling behind its energy target, it is hard to deny that Australia is in desperate need for a thorough energy transformation.

To apprehend Australia’s dire needs from its current energy system condition, challenges and changes that lies ahead, Clariden Global is proud to present Australia Energy Policy Forum: Improving Australia’s Energy Infrastructure Reliability and Stability this June 2017.

With a respectable line-up of speakers comprising regulatory officials from the state and federal government, local and international experts from energy think tanks and decision makers from big industry players, this forum provides an unprecedented 360-degree discussion platform to assist Australia’s energy transition. Coming to the event, you will have the chance to understand potential causes of the South Australia blackout, to ponder deep into the current energy problems and identify the areas in Australia where energy policies and infrastructure improvements are required.
