The All-Energy Australia conference >> continued from page 7 Stream 4/Day 1 starts with presentations on hydrogen and fuel cell technology and is followed by the transport session, which includes a presentation by Kristian Handberg, Project Manager, Low Emission Vehicles, at the Victorian Department of Transport. The concluding session covers bioenergy and from the US we welcome Dr Robert Do, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer, Solena Group, who will discuss the joint-venture with British Airways to build a waste to jet biofuel plant in London as part of his presentation on creating aviation biofuel from municipal waste. Stream 5/Day 1 includes two sessions devoted to transmission and distribution. Starting with the smart grid, Jonathan Jutsen, Executive Director, Energetics and Chairman, Australian Alliance to Save Energy will present on: ‘The smarter grid: Demand management, energy efficiency and distribution/co-generation’. Session 2 covers power transmission, and Bo Nilsson of ABB Australia will look at HVDC transmission systems – vital for efficient long distance transmission. Stream 5 opens with our first session on wave & tidal energy when we welcome from Korea, Byung-Hak Cho, Chief Researcher at the Korea Electric Power Research Institute who will detail the sea trial test of the 2kW class rotating body type prototype wave energy converter.

Day 2 Stream 1/Day 2 offers an engrossing trio of international clean energy perspectives from Sweden, Canada and notably from JETRO, the Japan External Trade Organisation where Jennifer Bean, Japan Market Investment Adviser will outline how Australian clean energy businesses can break into the Japanese market. Session 2 marks the first of our two investment sessions, and starts with thought provoking presentations from Bloomberg’s Seb Henbest; John Dyson, the CEO of Australia’s largest venture capitalist, Starfish Ventures; and Nathan Fabian, the CEO of the Investor Group on Climate Change. The concluding session, to be chaired by Martin Rushe, the MD of Moss Capital, will adopt a panel format and feature three leading financial figures will each give a brief presentation on the potential problems that renewable energy, as a disruptive technology, presents to investors. What impact will Google have on the traditional players in the clean energy space? Get along and find out! Stream 2/Day 2 is devoted to the massive issue of energy efficiency, which in practice could potentially be the most important factor of all in the carbon emissions reduction equation – and in creating new employment opportunities. We welcome the participation of the Energy Efficiency Council and CEO Rob MurrayLeach in what promises to be an excellent programme that will address industrial energy efficiency, the future of energy efficiency and clean cities. Stream 3/Day 2 picks up something we started in 2010 – a series of themes and presentations developed by the Australian Institute of Energy’s Young Energy Professionals. The three YEP sessions will cover – Getting value from your smart meter: how to manage and monitor your energy using your smart meter; Entrepreneurship and Energy in Australia: Bringing energy technologies from concept to commercialisation within Australia; and a debate/discussion on the political nature of the current debate on renewable energy. Stream 4/Day 2 gets going with a session on the vitally important matter of building an Australian clean energy industry, and will feature an opening keynote presentation from Mary O’Kane, Chair of the Australian Centre for Renewable Energy followed by Mark Twidell, Executive Director of the Australian Solar Institute who will present on building an Australian solar industry; by Rob McCullagh of the Industry Capability Network on Australian industry participation in the clean energy space; and by Ric O'Connell of Black & Veatch on Solar PV and the lessons for Australia from California. Session 2 will cover training and skills and the stream while Session 3 will cover Carbon pricing and emissions trading, and include a presentation: ‘Understanding the Clean Energy Finance Corporation’ by Wayne Smith, Director of Clean Economy Services. Stream 5/Day 2 starts with our second session on Wave & Tidal Energy, when Alan Major, CEO of Tenax Energy, will outline a very interesting business model ahead of presentations from Biopower Systems and Aquagen Technologies. In session 2 the focus is on wind energy and we welcome Peter Hjuler Jensen of Denmark’s Riso National Laboratory, who will introduce the UpWind Project, Europe’s attempt to design a very large scale wind turbine. The stream will end with presentations on geothermal energy which include one from Stephen Hinchcliffe from Sinclair Knight Mertz titled: ‘Developing geothermal power projects in Australia’.
