EN2024: Inspiring solutions

The countdown is on to next month’s Energy Networks 2024 (EN2024) Conference and Exhibition at Adelaide Convention Centre. We take a look at the program, the highlights and the opportunity to connect, learn and guide Australia’s energy future.

 Networks, networking 

This event is a collaboration of network expertise from across Australia and a chance for our members, key stakeholders and industry partners to connect, share and create solutions for the challenges and opportunities we face as we undergo the transformation of our energy system.

ENA members provide more than 16 million electricity and gas connections to almost every home and business across Australia.

They are responsible for delivering sustainable and reliable energy and are at the forefront of our nation’s entire energy transition. Rather than debate the politics of net zero, our members use expertise and insight to develop viable solutions for customers now and into the future.

ENA is honoured to host this event, designed to connect people from across the industry, providing opportunities to strengthen existing relationships and create new ones.

In 2024, this event is timed perfectly to energise perspectives and keep our eye on the prize.

Global discussions, local solutions 

We are excited to welcome Philip Hirschhorn, a leading figure in the energy sector and Managing Director & Senior Partner at Boston Consulting Group (BCG), as our Day 2 afternoon keynote speaker at EN2024.

Building on his insightful 2018 address, Philip will explore the evolving challenges in the energy landscape. His keynote will focus on accelerating transmission infrastructure, enhancing electricity distribution networks, and redefining the role of gas networks in the zero-emission energy transition.

Philip’s session promises to be a highlight, offering a blend of in-depth knowledge and forward-thinking strategies. Anticipate a keynote that not only informs but inspires, as he shares his unique perspective on the future of the energy sector.
