The theme has been chosen to reflect the critical role electrification will play in the shift from fossil fuels in key economic sectors, including homes, commercial buildings, light transport, manufacturing and food processing. Indeed, the best evidence from around the world is demonstrating that energy efficiency and electrification will play a critical role in the decarbonisation of huge chunks of the global economy. Here in Australia, we need to get on with the big national conversation about how we get this transition done.

With Australia increasingly looking to energy efficiency and smart energy management to help reach net zero targets and address the energy cost crisis, next year's Conference will host the essential discussions, debate, networking and cutting edge thinking necessary to advance energy management's role in these great challenges.
