Energy security issues top the agenda at South Australian energy forum

The leading voice and advocate for large energy users, the Energy Users Association of Australia, will tomorrow welcome Australian energy users, politicians and energy experts to its first South Australian energy forum. ‘The South Australian energy market has been firmly in the spotlight over recent times,’ said Andrew Richards, CEO of the Energy Users Association of Australia (EUAA). ‘The timing of our first energy forum in South Australia couldn’t be better.’ Key issues on the agenda include the role of renewable energy, plans to improve energy security and efforts to bring more economically sustainable electricity and gas prices. ‘A combination of issues brought about significant high price events recently in South Australia,’ said Mr Richards. ‘When you include the recent statewide blackout, energy users are understandably looking for answers and are concerned about what the summer months will bring.’ The South Australian Energy Forum gives energy users the opportunity to hear directly from The Hon Tom Koutsantonis MP, South Australia’s Minister for energy about government policy to address concerns. Joining Minister Koutsantonis on the stage will be some of Australia’s industry experts, policy makers, regulators and commentators, including David Swift from the AEMO. ‘Energy users can expect an insightful and informative morning,’ said Mr Andrews. ‘Our events are specifically designed with speakers that address the issues that matter most to large energy users, and the South Australian Energy Forum will be no exception.’
