Climate Smart Engineering Conference program announced

The shift to renewable and clean energy sources requires innovative engineering solutions that ensure reliability, cost-effectiveness and sustainability.

On 22 August 2024, Engineers Australia will deliver the Climate Smart Engineering Conference (CSE24), with some of the profession’s best and brightest thought leaders and stakeholders to navigate one of the most critical challenges in tackling climate change – the clean energy transition.

Engineers Australia CEO, Romilly Madew AO, says this is an opportunity to hear from a wide range of experts in climate smart engineering, learn from successful technical solutions and strategies and connect with peers.

“CSE24 brings you the latest insights and engineering innovations – examining everything from the role of digital technology and AI to the challenges of decarbonising transport and upskilling in renewable energy.”

With representatives from Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO), CSIRO, Energy Networks Australia, GHD, Powerlink Australia and more, the program will discuss:

  • The role of digital technologies and AI in making energy systems smarter, more resilient and efficient.
  • Opportunities to decarbonise Australia’s heavy industry and transport sector.
  • Strategies for navigating the approval process for renewable energy projects.
  • Systems-based approaches to building our future energy infrastructure.

Now in its fourth year, CSE24 is dedicated to addressing climate change from the engineering perspective. With engineers and industry poised to play a major role in Australia’s clean energy transition, this is an opportunity to network, connect and collaborate to build a better and more sustainable world.

CSE24 speaker line-up includes:

  • Peter Price, Chief Engineer, Energy Queensland
  • Marghanita Johnson, CEO, Australian Aluminium Council
  • Gerard Coggan, Coordinator General, Department of State Development and Infrastructure
  • Mike Kaiser, Director-General, Department of the Premier and Cabinet
