Time & Date:


2:00 PM - 3:30 PM, AEST(UTC+10) Sept 29



Wind energy plays a vital role in the projected Australia low-carbon delivery for 2021 and beyond. Major drivers include supporting policy instruments by means of transmissions, REZs, legislations, etc. (e.g., the Offshore Electricity Infrastructure Bill). However, the risks to investments are also becoming increasingly complex due to its capital-intensive nature. In the context, IMPACT Australia Wind online program is launched to bring together everything you need to know to de-risk investment decisions and enable sector coupling in the AU wind industry through actionable insights.
