The Energy Systems Conference 2016 will examine the global drivers affecting the energy system such as governmental policy commitments and objectives, global climate change commitments, and resource constraints.

Co-hosted by the Energy Institute and Elsevier, thebrings together research, academia, industry and policymakers to:

Address the flaws and gaps for energy systems in areas including policy, investment, attitudes, management and security.

Examine emerging research and technology and new policy, critically assessing what can and should be implemented to ensure effective integration between different parts of the energy system, from resources to end users.

Reflect on real world case studies.

Discuss how the cost of energy systems can be optimised to drive investment and uptake.

All water industry personnel involved in the operation and maintenance of urban, rural and industrial water related infrastructure for the management, conveyance, treatment, discharge and reuse of water and trade wastes should attend this conference.

This is one of three very successful `operationally focussed` conferences and exhibitions organised by WIOA annually. WIOA stages the Annual Victorian Water Industry Operations Conference and Exhibition which provides a forum for individuals involved in the water operations to:

Distribute the latest "operational" technical and research based information through platform and poster presentations.

Update of knowledge and skills plus network development by operations staff through interaction with fellow Water Industry employees.

Provide opportunities to view and discuss the latest advances in technical equipment and systems with suppliers and trade consultants.
