• The Energy & Investment Series

    Large Scale Solar | Pumped Hydro & Battery Storage | Off Grid & Stand Alone Power

    25–26 February 2020
    Swissotel Sydney



The Energy & Investment Series brings together three of Informa’s leading renewable energy events under the one roof. This allows the finance and investment community, service, engineering and supply industries, government agencies and the broader energy sector to switch sessions and plan a track to suit their requirements. This is great value and offers exceptional networking opportunities.

All three conferences – The 6th Annual Large Scale Solar, the 4th Annual Pumped Hydro & Battery Storage Conference, and 7th Annual Off-Grid and Stand Alone Power Conference will be co-located at the Swissotel, Sydney on the 25-26 February 2020

One registration to any of these conferences gives you an Access All Areas Pass to attend any of the sessions at the three events.

That’s three conferences for the price of one – Featuring a comprehensive line-up of speakers on the most cutting edge energy projects being rolled out across Australia.

  • Pumped Hydro & Battery Storage Conference


  • Off-Grid & Stand Alone Power Conference
