The Australian Energy Storage Conference & Exhibition gains support from the Deputy Premier, Troy Grant MP.
In his letter, the Deputy Premier wrote, “Sydney looks forward to extending a warm welcome to delegates attending the 2015 Australian Energy Storage Conference and Exhibition.”
“The NSW Government is committed to a secure, affordable and clean energy future for NSW. Energy storage and associated information and communications technology is exciting technology that can make our energy systems cheaper to run and more reliable.
“Storage provides an opportunity for households to be more proactive in the energy market, whilst increasing competition and reducing red tape for business.”
Last year’s inaugural event was a great success and it attracted over 800 attendees from 23 different countries. The 2015 event is expected to bring together more than 1,000 visitors, including regulators, utility executives, investors, project developers, and technologists for two days of discussions, workshops, deal-making and networking.
