Hon Dr Megan Woods, Minster of Energy and Resources will provide the opening address of Downstream 2018. With recent government announcements around the zero carbon Act and an upcoming review of the electricity market, the change in government has a material influence on the future for the energy industry and consumers. We are also delighted to announce that Hon James Shaw, Minister for Climate Change will speak at the start of Day 2. With the establishment of a Climate Commission and the recent focus on a lower emissions future for the energy sector this couldn't be much more important and topical.
On Day 2, Toby Stevenson and Dr Stephen Batstone will be presenting some of the key findings from the Sapere report provided to the Productivity Commission for the inquiry into transitioning to lower emissions. Please note the Productivity Commission report will not be released at Downstream.
