National Energy Efficiency Forum: Managing gas price shocks

Australia’s energy debate has been at boiling point for months, fueled by skyrocketing energy costs and concerns around reliability.

Gas price shocks have hit many large energy users particularly hard. However, the public discussion has focused almost entirely on the supply side issues driving price rises; the very real opportunities to manage these price shocks through energy efficiency have received far less attention.

The Energy Efficiency Council’s National Energy Efficiency Forum: Managing gas price shocks will bring these opportunities into focus. This lunch event will examine the causes of rising gas prices, the policy responses available to government, and options for large gas users to reduce their exposure to gas prices through energy efficiency and fuel switching.

Focused on briefing policymakers, energy efficiency professionals and energy users alike, the National Energy Efficiency Forum: Managing gas price shocks will bring together leading decision makers and experts for a wide ranging discussion on this critical issue:

  • Keynote address from Josh Frydenberg, Federal Minister for the Environment and Energy
  • Expert presentations focused on opportunities for industry to manage increased gas costs through smart energy use, including Innes Willox, Chief Executive, Ai Group and Amandine Denis-Ryan, Acting Chief Executive Officer, ClimateWorks Australia.

This high profile luncheon will be followed by networking drinks with executives and dignitaries.
