If you are interested in giving a paper which would fit into the topics above, you should submit an abstract of up to 200 words using this link. You will need to include a brief biography and a head shot of the author/presenter. Early paper submissions will be prioritised when allocating the available speaker sessions. 

The conference will cover the changes that are happening in Australia and the challenges still to be met to reach the nirvana of cheap, renewable energy for all. There is clear daylight between the aspirations of many experts in the media and the current projects being undertaken at present. We will go beyong the blue-sky reports in the media today and find the latest developments being used and the actual performance of our electricty supply systems. 

Australia has an obvious wealth of natural resources that can provide us with renewable and non-carbon emitting energy. This includes wide spaces to gather energy from solar and wind sources, long coastlines with wave and tidal potential and numerous options to produce hydrogen fuels. The energy sector, and particularly the power supply sector, in Australia is currently undergoing large changes driven by threats to business as usual from the large uptake of renewable energy sources and climate factors.  EECON 2021 presents research institutions and entrepreneurial companies and utilities who are at the forefront of applied world-leading technology with projects that demonstrate the steps needed to change from current practices to the opportunities presented in the new energy landscape.
