South West conference to light up future of energy

Residents are invited to attend a June future of energy conference to be held in Collie by the South West Development Commission.

The evolving energy landscape and the role renewables are likely to play in the future will be at the forefront of discussion.

Attendees will hear from industry experts, learn about renewable energy projects, and be able to switch on to the possibilities presented by sustainable technologies such as wind, wave and solar.

SWDC acting chief executive officer Rebecca Ball said the event will offer insight into the steps businesses, towns and cities are taking to transition to a more sustainable energy future.

“We encourage Collie residents as well as those in the wider South West and around Western Australia to register to attend,” Ms Ball said.

The Critical Horizons – Powering the Future of WA event will open with a welcome function at the Collie Motorplex on June 7.

On June 8, a full-day conference featuring a long-list of presenters will be held at Harris River Estate.

The cost of attending the conference is $90, with the price including morning tea and lunch as well as a post-event networking session.
