  Energy efficiency expo celebrates successful first edition

SYDNEY, 25th October 2019: The inaugural Energy Efficiency Expo is celebrating a successful debut, after achieving more than 50% increase on expected visitor numbers, with business, government and building consultants explored how to slash their energy costs and improve their energy management.

Launched by Reed Exhibitions Australia, in partnership with the Energy Efficiency Council (EEC), Energy Efficiency Expo featured an energy productivity and affordability conference of over 80 speakers sharing their insights, energy efficiency case-studies and experience in reducing the cost of energy. Alongside the conference, over 50 innovative companies showcasing their solutions that facilitate improved energy management and increased cost-savings.

Luke Menzel, Energy Efficiency Council CEO, shared the dialogue, policy discussion and knowledge-sharing for businesses across all sectors as being key highlights of the first Energy Efficiency Expo.

“I’ve been thrilled by the quality of discussion and debate here at Energy Efficiency Expo. In the business stream, we’ve been able to provide a platform for Australia's manufacturing, food processing, agribusiness and commercial building sectors to share how they are acting to manage their energy costs. In the policy stream, the input of local experts and global leaders in energy management has been outstanding.

“And the joint plenaries with All-Energy Australia have been an incredible new forum for talking about how we transition the supply side and the demand side of our energy system in an integrated way. Special thanks to Reed Exhibitions and the Clean Energy Council for working with the Energy Efficiency Council on this incredible set of events. We can’t wait for next year!" Mr Menzel, said.

Companies also took advantage of the ‘Energy Management for Business’ workshops, facilitated by the Energy Efficiency Council and Sustainability Victoria, which ran across both days of Energy Efficiency Expo. These workshops covered topics including how to understand energy consumption, interpret energy data, identify costs savings, build an energy management plan and selling the case for energy efficiency internally.

Robby Clark, Exhibition Director at Reed Exhibitions Australia, said the inaugural event was a huge success in its debut on the industry’s calendar, offering the opportunity to learn about energy cost reduction strategies and a platform for sourcing the right solutions for achieving greater energy efficiency.

“The first Energy Efficiency Expo was a tremendous success, with attendees taking advantage of this opportunity to learn how to better manage their energy use, develop internal energy management projects and source solutions for reducing energy costs. We’d like to thank Luke Menzel, Chief Executive Officer, Energy Efficiency Council, and his team for their strong support in helping to deliver this inaugural event and looking forward to partnering again for an even larger Energy Efficiency Expo 2020.” Mr Clark shared.

Energy Efficiency 2020 will be held at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre, alongside All-Energy Australia and Waste Expo Australia, from the 21st to 22nd October 2020. For more information about the exhibition and conference please visit https://www.energyefficiencyexpo.com.au
