The Australian Power Industry is undergoing revolutionary technological and structural change, from grid infrastructure and energy storage to new ways of conducting business using blockchain, AI and Internet of Things technology. The traditional industry lines between generation, distribution and consumption have blurred and this convergence is transforming the industry beyond recognition.
The 2018 inaugural conference and exhibition held in March 2018 was overwhelmingly embraced by the electric power industry.
Power Australia is the only conference and exhibition designed to address the challenges facing the industry from end to end, bringing together the entire industry – generation, transmission and distribution and retail.
At the same time the introduction of renewables, which has resulted in the exponential increase of distributed generation and microgrids, has resulted in a vigorous debate about the proper balance of renewable and traditional fossil fuel technologies. All the while the cost to the Australian consumer has become the biggest challenge to confront the industry in years.
