We were on site for the first of the All Energy 2016 two day conference and exhibition on renewable energy to bring you some of the highlights (coming soon) and to video three fabulous interviews between renowned energy expert Jon Jutsen and three of the leading speakers during the day.

The atmosphere was strongly upbeat, as if the PM and his fossil fuel lobby hadn’t just last week launched another attack on renewable energy. This is a powering industry, literally and figuratively. Five thousand people are expected to attend the exhibition and the atmosphere was one of great optimism among the hundreds of businesses with displays in the exhibition space and almost as many speakers delivering insights in the conference. One visitor from Brisbane who’d been coming for five years happily shared he’d was making “loads of money” from his solar business.

Clearly this is an industry on the move and with plenty of positive (renewable) energy.  Stay tuned for more updates, and our videos, but meanwhile here is taste of what was on offer on Day 1. The conference continues today  (Wednesday). The exhibition is free to attend.
