Terrapinn Limited, the owner of hundreds of global trade shows and business conferences, and the organiser of the world's largest series of solar & storage trade show – SOLAR & STORAGE LIVE - has announced the Australian edition is coming to Brisbane on 1 & 2 May 2024.
"As Queensland’s appetite for solar grows in response to massive government and private sector construction projects with ambitious net zero targets, our choice of Brisbane for the show makes sense to the solar industry both nationally and internationally. Leading brands have already shown support by reserving prime spots and booking early to take advantage of our early bird exhibitor discounts" said Craig Macfarlane, MD of Terrapinn Australia.
Terrapinn is an Australian owned business with offices around the world in London (Head Office), Sydney, New York, Dubai, Johannesburg, and Singapore.
"We’ve already sold out our 2024 shows in the UK, South Africa, and the Philippines, so if international experience is anything to go by, then you can expect Solar & Storage Live in Brisbane to be just as popular and attract attendees from every state in Australia".
Solar & Storage Live is a large and established trade show and multi-streamed conference that combines residential, commercial/industrial and utility-scale solar and attracts record crowds around the world in the UK, USA, South Africa, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Philippines, Thailand and now... Australia. The series is even launching in Switzerland in 2024.
Unlike other energy events that cover all types of energy, Solar & Storage Live is unique in that it focuses exclusively on solar, battery storage, and PV-EV charging.
In Australia, the solar industry is growing at a massive 25-30% and all indications are that this rate of growth is about to increase even more. Nowhere else is this more obvious than in the state of Queensland where government is investing $19 billion into new infrastructure and utilities as it prepares for the 2032 Olympic Games which will be the first ‘climate positive’ games.
Several thousand people are expected to attend Solar & Storage Live Australia 2024 with our international shows attracting upwards of 20,000 visitors. The show will host 150+ exhibitors including suppliers such as Enphase, Jinko, Sunsynk, Origin and Tesla, 160+ expert speakers including Kane Thornton, CEO of Clean Energy Council; Jenny Riesz, Principal of Australian Energy Market Operator; Stan Krpan, CEO of Solar Victoria; Glen Dahlenburg, General Manager Energy Storage at Energy Queensland; Kimberly Camrass, Director of Climate Positive Brisbane 2032; David Shankey, Deputy Director-General Energy at Department of Energy and Public Works; and James Hay, CEO of Energy Corporation of NSW speaking across key themes including residential solar, commercial/industrial solar, large-scale utility solar, battery storage and EV charging.
There’s something for everyone with a big focus on end-user case studies (including mining, farming, business, VPPs and FCAS), with end-user speakers including Tessa Lees, Sustainability Manager of The Arnott’s Group; Sue Panuccio, National Environment Manager and Sustainability Lead of Ramsay Health Care; and Christopher Cormack, New Energy Director of JLL. The event also has a strong focus on investment and training, with the inclusion of an 'Investors-meets-Developers Lounge' and an ‘Installers University’.
“The average cost of exhibiting at Solar & Storage Live Australia is less than that of our competitors, plus we’re offering Early Bird Discounts to those who book early”, said Macfarlane.
Australian and international PV, battery and EV charging manufacturers, distributers, retailers, utilities, tech providers, as well as large installers and financiers are invited to participate.
Solar & Storage Live Australia is supported by the Brisbane Economic Development Agency and Energy Skills Queensland as well as a raft of media, publications, and business associations.
A list of speakers, sponsors & exhibitors, and conference topics as well as details on how to register for this free-to-attend event are available at solarstoragelive.com.au.
