The Institute for Sustainable Futures at the University of Technology Sydney, in conjunction with the Australian Alliance to Save Energy is pleased to announce The 2016 Australian Summer Study on Energy Productivity in Sydney on 24 – 26 February 2016.
"The energy productivity revolution has begun. Our economy is growing strongly while the energy required to drive this growth declines. New businesses are emerging to create smarter, cleaner energy products and services at an unprecedented rate. Energy efficiency, distributed generation and smart energy management are transforming energy business models. Meanwhile renewable energy is growing rapidly. The Summer Study on Energy Productivity is the event to understand and shape this emerging, more prosperous, low carbon energy future."

CEEC director Mary Stewart will also present in this session; on the role of energy efficiency in the mining sector in enabling Australia to meet its 2035 targets.
What is a Summer Study?
The Summer Study is an international institution, running for over 30 years in the US and 20 in Europe. The Australian Summer study is endorsed by the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy and its European counterpart the ECEEE. These are popular events, renowned for bringing together leaders in energy efficiency from government, politics, academia, the private sector and NGOs. The 2016 Australian Summer Study is a three-day residential event set on the shores of the spectacular Manly Beach in Sydney.The program balances formal presentations by international experts with informal working sessions while allowing ample time for networking and collaboration. The relaxed, informal line-in format allows for in-depth discussions to develop across the event. Proven to be a great environment for cross fertilising ideas and making lasting connections, Summer Study delegates return year after year! The Summer Study brings together over 300 leaders, experts, practitioners and researchers from Australia and overseas from industry, government, the research community and consumer groups. The Summer Study offers a unique, informal, fun and creative environment to:
Highlight breakthroughs to boost energy productivity
Champion best practice across industry sectors
Brainstorm technology, market and policy innovation
Develop powerful ideas and strong relationships
Trigger effective action for a more productive economy
As the Chair of the Mining session; I encourage your attendance and contribution to this important stream.
