We look forward to having you join us in leading the energy transition the Australian way at EECON 2023 in Melbourne.

EECON is a national conference about Electric Energy hosted annually by The Electric Energy Society of Australia. EECON 2023 will take place on Wednesday 15th and Thursday 16th November 2023 at the Crown Promenade Conference Centre in Melbourne.

The theme of EECON 2023 is Leading the Energy Transition the Australian Way - Powering up with Resilience.

Throughout history, each successive generation has enjoyed higher living standards than the one before, a trend predominantly propelled by technological advancements. However, present day technology demands progressively larger quantities of resources and energy, consequently leading to a depletion of natural ecosystems.

For the first time in history, we face the prospect of diminishing living standards due to factors such as overpopulation, limited resources, and the degradation of the natural environment that sustains all life. Climate change is the paramount challenge, representing an existential threat to humanity.

EECON 2023 will centre around how the Australian electricity supply industry is rising to meet this challenge. You will hear from 50 experts from across the nation about how the industry is using Australian knowhow to solve important problems.

When humankind as a whole is in a position to give back to nature at least as much as we take, and repay some of our debts, we will be able to lead more balanced lives.
