We will also host an extensive industry exhibition, with over 100 exhibitors, so you can keep up with product offerings and trends.

Last year over 2,200 delegates attended.  This year we are expecting over 3,000 delegates for this important solar event.

Conference programs will be available soon online at:

Industry and Policy Stream

Industry and government experts will cover diverse topics including solar policy, market analysis/forecasts, solar project financing and case studies.

Notable speakers include:

  • Hon Mark Butler MP –  Shadow Minister for Environment, Climate Change and Water
  • Senator Christine Milne – Leader Australian Greens
  • Scientia Professor Martin Green – UNSW
  • Ivor Frischknecht – CEO Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA)
  • Giles Parkinson – Renew Economy
  • Oliver Yates – CEO   Clean Energy Finance Corporation (CEFC)
  • Ric Brazzale – Managing Director Green Energy Trading

Professional Development Stream

Working with the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) we will again be running a free 2 day program designed especially for solar installer/designers and retailers.

Better still, you can claim CPD points towards accreditation for attending this event (we will confirm the number closer to the event).

We promise no fluff, just practical real-world information to keep you up-to-date, and to help your solar business survive (and hopefully thrive) in these tough times.

Scientific Conference and Energy Storage Conference

In addition we are running two more events alongside Solar 2014 this year:

  • Scientific Conference
  • Energy Storage Conference

Scientific & Research Stream

Once again we have had a fantastic response to this event.

Over 100 scientific papers will be presented as oral or poster presentations at the two-day Scientific Conference (across 3 concurrent streams).

In order to cover our costs a small registration fee does apply for this stream.

A registration link will be sent shortly for this event.

As the biggest scientific Solar Conference held in Australia this event is now in its 52nd year.

If you need to keep up with technological innovation and developments, you cannot miss the Scientific and Research Stream.

The Solar Council will supply members with a code to access the members discounted rate.

Energy Storage Conference

We will also be hosting the Australian Energy Storage Conference and Exhibition.

This Conference will feature over 30 speakers presenting talking about energy storage at utility level, on grid and off grid case studies, an update on battery and other storage technologies, and transport related storage issues.

The exhibition is free to attend, and all conference rates and registration details can be found at
