Tickets for Australia’s most extensive regionally led energy conference are on sale now!

The three-day event will focus on local actions being undertaken with global insight as Gippsland navigates our transition to renewable energy.

“The Gippsland New Energy Conference builds on the region’s proud history as an energy powerhouse. We have powered Victoria’s manufacturing and domestic power supply for close to 100 years, and we shall continue to lead the nation now in supplying clean, renewable power,” said Darren McCubbin, CEO of the Gippsland Climate Change Network.

Events will run from Tuesday, September 3rd, until Thursday, September 5th. They include the two-day energy conference, evening and breakfast networking, a free community expo, and the Gippsland New Energy Youth Summit.

Over 60 sessions and 120 international and local specialists. Sessions will cover the latest wind, solar, battery, hydrogen, and geothermal technology updates. Themes around supply chain procurement, skills, infrastructure, and manufacturing opportunities will be showcased, with additional discussions on community energy resilience and engaging with Traditional Owners. This year’s agenda has also been expanded with content on circular economy models, building biodiversity into the bigger picture, and more.

The Gippsland Climate Change Network facilitates GNEC, but the event is made possible through extensive partnerships and multi-agency working groups.
