The Energy Efficiency Council has postponed the National Energy Efficiency Conference 2020, scheduled to take place in Melbourne from May 26–27.
Energy Efficiency Council (EEC) CEO Luke Menzel says the decision was made to minimise the potential for transmission of COVID-19, and to deliver the highest quality event possible.
“We did not make this decision lightly,” Menzel says. “The conference plays an important role in Australia’s energy sector, forging links between industry, government and experts, and progressing debates on critical energy-management issues. However, after careful consideration, we have concluded that a delay until later in the year is in the best interests of attendees, speakers and the broader community.”
Menzel says the EEC is seeking to reschedule the conference for the second half of 2020, and hopes to make an announcement soon.
“In the meantime, we will be reopening early-bird conference tickets, and extending the closing date for submissions to the National Energy Efficiency Awards,” he explains.
The Energy Official Council will be proceeding with smaller events such as those involving training. However, a full credit (for use at future EEC training or events) will be provided to anyone unable to attend as a result of feeling unwell and needing to self-isolate in accordance with the latest public health guidelines.
