WHAT MAKES THE SUMMER STUDY UNIQUE?
balances structured presentations by international experts
with informal working sessions while allowing ample time for networking and collaboration. The relaxed, informal, live-in format allows for in-depth discussions to develop across the event, which has proven to be a great environment for cross-fertilising ideas and making lasting connections.
The A2SE would like to wish you and your families a safe and relaxing holiday period. We look forward to seeing you all at the Summer Study in 2013.
The A2SE would like to acknowledge and thank the supporters of the Summer Study:
The 2nd A2SE Summer Study on Energy Efficiency and Decentralised Energy is a not for profit event run by the Australian Alliance to Save Energy (A2SE). The A2SE is an independent, not-for-profit coalition of business, government and environmental leaders. It supports the widespread introduction of the world’s best practices and technologies in energy efficiency. The organisation informs public and policy discussions on energy efficiency, demand management, environmental protection and sustainability through high quality, unbiased research. A2SE’s key research partner is the Institute for Sustainable Futures at the University of Technology, Sydney, and it has established links with global leaders in energy efficiency and decentralised energy including The American Council for an Energy Efficient Future, The Alliance to Save Energy (USA), The Energy Saving Trust (UK), The World Alliance for Decentralised Energy (WADE), European Alliance to Save Energy, the European Council for an Energy Efficient Economy and the Alliance for an Energy Efficient Economy (India).
The Clean Energy Council is the peak body representing Australia’s clean energy and energy efficiency sector. It is an industry association that provides a unified voice for over 550 member companies involved in the development or deployment of technologies such as solar, wind, geothermal, hydro, wave, bioenergy, cogeneration, storage and energy efficiency. The Clean Energy Council provides a variety of services to members but its primary role is to develop and advocate effective policy to accelerate the development and deployment of all clean energy technologies. The council also promotes awareness of the industry, thought leadership and clean energy business opportunities through industry events, meetings, newsletters, directorates and the media.
