Australia’s Energy Future: Shaping a climate changing world


Climate change is arguably one of the most important global issues we face this century.

With the launch of the recent IPCC report highlighting the potential for large disruptions to our environment, our economic foundations and way of life in the future, it is more important than ever for governments and industry to work together in combating this issue.

Global attention will increasingly focus on climate change in the lead up to the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) being held in Glasgow in late October.

Our approach to energy plays a large part in how we shape our future. With energy needs increasing across the globe, new technologies are being developed to create cleaner and more reliable energy sources whilst planning to phase out more inefficient sources of power. Australia has significant opportunity and expertise to play a part in shaping this energy future for the world.

We invite you to join us for a special online event including live Q&A where we bring together leading voices from Government, Industry and University to discuss this future, our technology and economic opportunities, and the progress already being made in both policy and innovation to reach the global goal of net carbon zero in 2050.

Panel speakers:

  • Dave Sharma - MP for Wentworth
  • Grant King - Chairman of the Climate Change Authority
  • Hosted by: Justine Jarvinen - CEO, UNSW Energy Institute
