The Association arranges for a guest speaker to present to members attending the AGM on a topic relevant to the energy sector and wind energy. The 2020 AGM guest speaker was Suzannah Toulmin, Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) Change Team Leader, Energy Transitions.
Suzannah presented on Accelerated Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (AREEE) Strategy Development.
Her presentation included a summary of recently announced Government actions to support the development of renewables and industry responses to their AREEE consultation document which detailed a number of options to enable a transition to a low-emissions energy future. She also summarised the work programme and timeline for the Climate Change Commission’s development of emission reduction budgets and how their work linked with that of MBIE. Recent changes to the Emissions Trading Scheme were also summarised.
Further details on the venue, nominations for board positions and guest speaker will be provided closer to the AGM.
