Large-scale solar forum in Brisbane is searching for industry's leading lights

The solar industry has put a call-out to its leading lights today to submit session and presentation ideas for the upcoming Large-scale Solar Industry Forum at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre in May.

Natalie Collard, Clean Energy Council Executive General Manager – Industry Development, said the call-out for speakers for the event follows a record year for the sector during which thousands of new jobs had been created, along with millions of dollars in investment.

“Large-scale solar has more than halved in cost this decade and is now duelling with wind power to be the cheapest kind of energy generation it is possible to build today,” Ms Collard said.

“With dozens of solar projects expected to be built in the next few years, this is a fantastic opportunity for solar technical experts to learn from the best in the business, as well as sharing their insights with their peers.

“This is an inspiring and passionate industry which is constantly striving to find better ways to overcome the diverse challenges associated with building a large-scale solar power plant.

“Last year’s inaugural event sold out early, and there is a clear appetite for technical events which will provide professionals with up-to-the-minute information about how to do their jobs to the absolute best of their ability,” she said.

The Large-scale Solar Industry Forum will be held on 15 May 2018 from 9.00am – 6.30pm at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre. Technical conference sessions during the day will be followed by networking drinks.

More details about applying to speak at the event can be found at Applications close Thursday 15 February.
