9:10 AM PANEL DISCUSSION: Maintaining Relevance in the Decentralised, Decarbonised and Digitised Energy Ecosystem: The Evolving Role Of Utilities

The energy market is transforming with developments in distributed energy resource utilisation, microgrids (both remote and grid-tied), stand-alone power systems, electric vehicles, hydrogen, and storage innovations. Utilities are central to this change and are assessing the challenges and opportunities it represents, in particular around customer outcomes. Now is a critical time to consider what the impacts of this will look like as policy and regulation are evolving daily. This executive panel will bring together industry leaders to provide their insights into the changing ecosystem.

  • The evolving nature of the NEM, the WEM, and the role of the utility
  • The impact on the energy economy in Australia
  • A renewable future – are we keeping up?
  • The changing role of the utility and structure of the business model
  • Drawing simultaneous value for utility, customer & community
