MESSAGE FROM THE ENERGY EFFICIENCY COUNCIL

"Energy has become a first-order strategic issue for most Australian businesses. As a result, they are actively assessing any option that can reduce their exposure to an increasingly volatile energy market. And they are finding that energy efficiency is one of the quickest and cheapest ways to bring down energy bills while raising business productivity.

We are excited to be partnering with Reed Exhibitions Australia to deliver the Energy Efficiency Expo. I'm confident it will provide a valuable forum for Australian businesses to get across how they can act to take control of their energy costs."
