Upper Hunter Economic Breakfast 20 Sept

Future of energy and the Hunter

The Hunter region has a long and proud energy history. The Australian energy industry however is in transition - moving towards a carbon-constrained future. It has been announced that Liddell and Bayswater power stations will close in 2022 and 2035, respectively.

This transition will bring challenges for regions like the Upper Hunter. To minimise the impact - and maximise the opportunities - of the energy transition, it is critical that business, government, educational institutions and local communities work in partnership.

The future of energy and the Hunter will be the theme for the next event in the Hunter Research Foundation (HRF) Centre's Upper Hunter Economic Breakfast Series, now in its 16th year. The HRF Centre will also present the latest economic insights for the local and macro economy.

Join 120+ other guests on 20 September and be informed, challenged, inspired and 'connected' as we explore this topic and feature:

  • Kate Coates, General Manager AGL Macquarie
  • Anthea Bill PhD, Hunter Research Foundation Centre
  • Expert panel discussing the future of energy and featuring
    Prof Richard Bush, International Centre for Balanced Land Use
    Geoff Doherty PhD, Ethanol Technologies
