2015 marks an extremely important year for all stakeholders in the east coast energy supply chain.

The UNCCC meeting in Paris in November and a step change in gas demand stemming from first LNG shipments in Gladstone, as well as network price determinations for 2016, are just some of the issues plaguing the minds of east coast energy executives.

The four-day Eastern Australia’s Energy Market Outlook (EAEMO) conference in September will provide a comprehensive overview of the market, with a range of perspectives from the length of the energy supply chain.

“These major shifts are all occurring in the context of a period of significant transformation within the energy market, defined by increasingly engaged consumers, wholesale oversupply and distributed generation,” EAEMO 2015 Conference Director Aleks Zids said.

“It’s because of this huge uncertainty this this year’s 4th annual EAEMO 2015 conference is set to be the most significant to date, with more CXO’s speaking than ever before.”

Some of the conference highlights will include the IEA’s Director for Energy Markets and Security, Keisuke Sadamori, whose opening address will analyse the global energy outlook to 2025 and the megatrends impacting energy markets. 

He will be followed by Martin Moore, CEO of CS Energy, Jeff Dimery, CEO of Alinta Energy and John Pierce, Chairman of the AEMC, providing a high level discussion on how leading minds in energy foresee the lead up to 2025, and how industry and government alike can ensure the energy market’s capabilities of dealing with such complexities.

EAEMO’s second conference day will include the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission’s (ACCC) Chairman Rod Sims’ opening address – an update on the ACCC East Coast Gas Inquiry – followed by former minister and Director at BG Group, Martin Ferguson. This day will also include a look at the ‘network transition’ and ‘the road to Paris’, amongst other talks by industry leaders, such as Ergon Energy CEO Ian McLeod, Pacific Hydro’s Global CEO Michael Fuge and the Grattan Institute’s Tony Wood.

The conference will deliver a huge range of energy content from leading industry experts, and will be an excellent source of information for stakeholders in the east coast energy markets.
