World energy leaders to share insights at exclusive NZ event

The World Energy Council is to facilitate an exclusive roundtable featuring international energy leaders at a premier event to be held in Wellington, New Zealand.

The BusinessNZ Energy Council (BEC) and the World Energy Council (WEC) will host the Energy Leaders’ Summit from October 31 to November 1 at the Museum of New Zealand, Te Papa Tongarewa.

Energy sector leaders from around the world will gather to share insights and lessons about key energy sector trends, and the challenges and opportunities they imply.

NZ Government Ministers Megan Woods (Energy and Resources) and James Shaw (Climate Change) will deliver keynote addresses along with representatives from Amazon, Bloomberg New Energy Finance, Daikin, and the Silicon Valley.

The 3D vision - New Energy Perspectives summit is a must-attend event for those who want to be better equipped to understand and deal with the changing energy landscape, WEC Secretary-General Dr Christoph Frei says.

The high-level business and policy-maker roundtable is by invitation only to registered attendees, and will be facilitated by Dr Frei.

"Dramatic and rapid change is enabling new and bold environmental and market outcomes, with global and local energy markets in a state of transition.

"Climate change and the transition to decarbonise economies in a cost-efficient way is a global issue, and one that necessitates leadership and collaboration between countries if action is to be effective.

"The Summit will showcase respective country capabilities in the provision of renewable energy and is an opportunity to demonstrate leadership on climate change action."

The biennial Summit builds on the 2016 event by moving beyond the identification of risks and challenges that the sector faces to understanding, owning and acting on them, says BEC Chair David Caygill.

"The traditional energy landscape is shifting with the meta-trends of decarbonisation, decentralisation and digitalisation [the ‘3Ds’] at the fore. But as the risks shift, so too do the opportunities.

"What will the future energy system look like and how can you be a part of it? This event will provide a unique platform to challenge ideas and reach new understandings as we look to future proof the energy systems of the Asia-Pacific region and beyond."

Limited places remain for those yet to register, with earlybird and group discounts closing next week. Find the full Summit details, including discounted accommodation options, here: Asia Pacific Energy Leaders' Summit 2018
