Energy Productivity Summit 2017

04-05 April 2017 - Sydney



About the Summit


In 2014 we launched the 2xEP program with a two-day Forum that introduced the energy productivity model. And now, at the end of the first phase of the program, we present the Energy Productivity Summit. We aim to recap our work over the last couple of years, demonstrate the case for energy productivity and map the road to implementation and 2xEP by 2030. You’ll find most of the material we’ve produced for the program here

A2EP has a great record when it comes to bringing people together with ideas. Beginning in 2012 and 2013, the southern hemisphere Summer Study took the best of the American and European formats, added some local flavour and moved this three-day residential event to Manly. The 2016 Summer Study, run in partnership with the Institute for Sustainable Futures, was a great success. You’ll find complete archives here.

At our most recent conference, the 2016 Summer Study, we were joined by a stellar line up of local and overseas experts and leaders, including:

  • Kateri Callahan, President, US Alliance to Save Energy
  • Mark Paterson, Domain Leader - Grids + Renewable Energy Integration, CSIRO
  • Philip Sellwood, Chief Executive, UK Energy Saving Trust
  • Martin Bornholdt, Managing Director, DENEFF (German Business Initiative for Energy Efficiency)

  • David Hochschild, Commissioner, California Energy Commission
  • Gerard Reiter, Executive General Manager - Asset Management, TransGrid
  • John Hoekstra, Director of Sustainability, Schneider Electric
