Around 2,000 delegates, and over 80 companies from Australia and overseas, are expected to attend the premier gas and electricity transmission and distribution conference to address the key themes of customers, climate change, networks and competencies.
Demonstrations and operational site visits will complement the main program, focusing on how products are used and applied operationally with support from utility field staff.
It is estimated that the Australian natural gas industry has $200 billion worth of projects on the drawing board that could help drive the nation’s economic recovery through the creation of 50,000 jobs and $10 billion annually in tax revenue.
Michael Kilgariff, National Director of Energy Infrastructure Policy & Government Affairs for the Energy Networks Association, said that the gas industry was poised to play a major role in delivering Australia’s energy needs this century while meeting national greenhouse gas emission reduction targets.
He said “The gas industry has clearly demonstrated its commitment to working with governments to meet energy efficiency and greenhouse gas abatement objectives.”?
“Energy 21C will provide an opportunity for people to be at the leading edge of discussion and developments in addressing the challenges and opportunities facing the Australian gas industry.”?
The Gas Today team will be exhibiting at Energy 21C. We’re looking forward to the event and hope to see you there.
