Renewables business forum a success!

19 November 2018

Last Thursday 15 November RDA ACT conducted its bi-annual Renewable Energy Forum with over 80 participants attending focusing on Energy storage.

RDA ACT would like to thank the ACT Minister for Climate Change and Sustainability the Hon Shane Rattenbury MLA for speaking at the event as well as announcing RDA ACT’s new Renewable Energy Industry Capability Directory. The ACT Government has set itself demanding objectives in this space and RDA ACT is very happy to be assisting with progress towards their achievement.

The event featured speakers from the Smart Energy Council, ARENA, Austrade, ANU and industry members including SERREE members IT Power, Reposit Power and Beast Solutions.

The feedback has been very positive and the informed discussion that took place during the afternoon around the next big thing: energy storage, was thought to be very valuable. Networking and forging new business relationships was a large part of the day.
