Future of the Energy Market
Dr Kerry Schott AO will give a brief review of the Energy Security Board and what it has achieved and its role in the near future.
This will involve the possible developments in the future of the Energy Industry, not only its overall management but its reliability and stability. This will encompass such items as the expansion of the grids, the future of coal and gas, the impacts of solar, demand management and on call power supplies. There should be time for many Questions and Answers.
