Entering its fourth year co-located with the Australian Energy Storage Conference and Exhibition (AES), Renewable Cities Australia (RCA) is undergoing a number of significant changes. RCA will now be a free-to-attend two day event, featuring new industry association partners. The newly formed Business Renewables Centre Australia is the principal partner for the 1-day Renewable Cities Forum, while the Australian EV Council and Hydrogen Mobility Australia have partnered to create a 1-day Zero Emissions Transport Workshop. RCA is now the must-attend event in Australia for everything battery and fuel cell electric vehicle related.
While local councils and city government will still be an important visitor group of the conference, our cities and towns cannot obtain 100% renewable energy without participation from the commercial sector, and renewable uptake from this sector is increasing dramatically. With this in mind, the 2019 RCA Forum will be designed to deliver benefit to these commercial organizations, as well as the cities and councils who have attended this event for the past three years, with a particular focus on Power Purchase Agreements.
“Renewable” will be the focus of the conference but there is a lot more that goes into making a city or town 100% renewable than just the power source. This conference and associated exhibition will feature products, services, and projects helping to de-carbonize our economy through efficiency and automation, as well as renewable generation technologies and energy providers.
We hope you can join us in Sydney in June!
