The Energy Efficiency Council (EEC) is launching a major new report on the changing role of energy management, in Sydney on April 5.
Clean Energy, Clean Demand looks at how energy efficiency, electrification, renewables, storage, buildings and vehicles fit together as Australia transitions to zero emissions. It makes the case for energy efficiency and energy management being essential to an affordable and reliable clean energy system, and analyses a range of critical issues, including:
- The immediate role of energy efficiency in reducing households’ and businesses’ exposure to volatile electricity and fossil fuel prices
- How load shifting and reducing demand in critical periods will be essential for an affordable transition to a renewable energy system
- The importance of “efficient electrification” to eliminate fossil fuel use in our buildings and vehicles.
“This report sets out how we must complement investments in the integration of renewable generation, storage, networks and electrification with energy management to ensure our energy systems are clean, reliable and affordable as we transition to net zero,” says the EEC.
Speakers at the event will include Assistant Minister for Energy and Climate Change Jenny McAllister, Energy Consumers Australia CEO Lynne Gallagher, and the report’s author, Rob Murray-Leach.
