CEO Andrew Scobie, CMO Jacqui Porch, and Director, Paul Ezekiel travelled to Sydney to represent Faraday Grid and join key players of the energy sphere at the Clean Energy Summit 2018. The two-day summit took place in the scenic Darling Harbour and attracted a global audience of professionals engaged with the current energy transformation, particularly renewable energy and energy efficiency.
Faraday Grid’s technology provides a platform for a new energy ecosystem that resolves the energy trilemma and enables new technologies to participate. As such, it sparks conversations with experts from a variety of fields. On the first day of the conference, the Faraday delegation was engaged with a series of briefings with leaders of industry, government, and finance enthusiastic to understand how they can partner with Faraday in our global deployment program.
The Gala Dinner brought an enjoyable conclusion to an active day of meetings: a night of entertainment with the conference attendees and the award ceremony presenting the winners of the Clean Energy Awards.
The following morning, Jacqui Porch started the day at the Women in Renewables breakfast event. Women in Renewables is an initiative of the Clean Energy Council, formed to empower women in the field of renewable energy through a community of dedicated men and women to deliver the best progress for a sustainable future.
In the midst of a day of meetings in the city, Andrew, Jacqui, and Paul took time to attend the Australian Israel Chamber of Commerce Energy Lunch. The discussion lead by speakers, Steven Skala, Chair of the Clean Energy Finance Corporation and Federal Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg resonated with Faraday’s focus, being centred around making sustainable, affordable, and reliable electricity a reality for people.
Closing a dynamic and highly productive two days in Sydney, the Faraday team left to continue their meeting schedule in the following days in Melbourne and Tokyo.
