National Manufacturing Summit to spotlight renewable energy

Hosted by Weld Australia, the 2024 National Manufacturing Summit will bring together leading industry experts to discuss the practical aspects of manufacturing Australia’s renewable energy revolution.

It is set to highlight the essential components needed to drive Australia’s transition to a sustainable future and help overcome the challenges.

These components will relate to the Australian Government’s commitment to reducing emissions by 43 per cent by 2030, delivering 82 per cent renewable electricity by 2030, and achieving net zero by 2050.

CEO of Weld Australia, Geoff Crittenden, said that the renewable energy transition is incredibly important for Australia’s future.

“It is, by far, the biggest transformation of Australia’s energy market ever undertaken. As well as the shift from coal to firmed renewables, it will treble capacity to meet future demand, and enable a two-way flow of electricity across the grid,” said Crittenden.

“The sheer scale of the project is enormous. With an anticipated growth in renewable energy generation from 64GW to over 218GW by 2050, the manufacturing sector is at the forefront.”

The theme of the 2024 National Manufacturing Summit is Pathway to Success: Making the Renewable Energy Revolution a Reality.

The summit will aim to bridge the gap between ambitious targets and practical implementation.

Held in Brisbane on 31 July and 1 August, the summit will act as a catalyst for action.

Industry experts speaking at the event include Crittenden himself, CEO of First Solar Georges Antoun, co-founder of The Demographics Group Simon Kuestenmacher, and Queensland minister for regional development and manufacturing and minister for water, Glenn Butcher.
