Event:
VIC Events
Presenter:
Mr Ian Thomas, Dr Graeme Pearman and Mr David Blowers
Venue:
Innovation Hub (lower level) Engineers Australia, L 31, 600 Bourke Street Melbourne
Synopsis:
Transformations to Australia's energy generation and consumption are being driven by the twin imperatives of climate change mitigation and technology innovation. Our electricity systems are under unprecedented scrutiny in the wake of the September 2016 blackout in South Australia. We are committed as a nation to achieve emissions reductions made following the 2015 Paris climate conference.  What is the role of Engineers in delivering these commitments and what are the transition risks? What scope is there to improve energy efficiency in key sectors such as buildings and transport. What policy measures are needed to meet challenges of the future?  This seminar will focus on these crucial issues."

These substances have recently been the cause of Ground Water contamination in Oakey and Williamtown. This session will look at the potential risks and impacts associated with these substances as well potential future regulation in QLD on these substances
