Australia’s largest event for the renewable energy and energy efficiency industries, Clean Energy Week beings today in Sydney. Hosted by the Clean Energy Council (CEC), the event involves a trade exhibition, schools program, and events open to the general public, including educational exhibitions for visitors to experience five different simulated clean energy worlds such as wind world, solar world, bioenergy world, energy efficiency world and emerging technologies world.
One of the main focuses of this year’s conference is the Renewable Energy Target which is a target set by the government to aim to deliver 20 per cent of the country’s electricity from renewable energy sources including solar power, by 2020, with keynote speaker Greg Combet, Minister of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency. The week will also aim to deliver any related policy initiatives and technology developments on the solar and other renewable energy fronts.
As part of the country’s commitment to renewable energy, Clean Energy Week provides an excellent forum for these initiatives to be made and discussed, including the improvements in solar power, discussion on commercial scale solar power, innovations in large scale solar power, as well as other renewable energy technologies such as wind. Many solar power manufacturers will also showcase new solar panel and solar cell technologies in the exhibition.
