IA's Sandi Keane to speak at Australian Wind Energy conference

By | | comments |

IA environment correspondent Sandi Keane joins a stellar cast of speakers at the 7th Australia Wind Energy Conference being held in Melbourne in mid-December.

2011 is a watershed year for wind energy. The announcement of a carbon price accelerates the development of clean energy and increases the potential for new investment technologies and projects.

Meanwhile, the growing concern of health effects of wind turbines, paired with Victoria’s new planning regulations means local support and community engagement are more crucial than ever.

The 7th Australian Wind Energy Conference, to be held on 12 -13 December 2011 | Hilton Park, Melbourne, will address these pressing issues, with targeted content focused on business growth, financing and changes in policy and regulation across the wind energy spectrum in an exclusive circle of senior level investment and business decision-makers.

Join this year's conference and meet Sandi Keane, Independent Australia's doggedly unstoppable investigative journalist, as well as to hear developments in federal, state and local government policy, national and international trends in manufacturing and construction and project updates from some of the largest wind farms in the country. (See the agenda.)
