The Democratisation of Energy.

EVENT: Join us for the first in our Democratisation of Energy event series, examining what digitisation, decarbonisation, and decentralisation mean for consumers.

Energy & environment

In just a few short years, Australia’s energy system has shifted from moving power largely one-way – from coal plant to premise – to a country with the highest penetration of rooftop solar anywhere in the world. Demand patterns are changing. Digitisation has a massive potential for us all to better understand, and participate actively in, our energy system – responding as we like to climate and cost. No longer is energy something done to us, consumed passively. But does this mean more power for the people?

This event, the Democratisation of Energy: the Consumer examines the forces at play, transforming the energy sector today, and what it means for the people it serves.

We explore what customer centricity in energy actually means. What are the unmet needs – socially and environmentally – that our sector is best placed to solve, and how can this become part of its profit strategy for a future of cleaner, better, more affordable power? How we can give power to people in ways that creates new value?


We will be tackling these questions alongside our industry-expert panel:

Kim Clarke – Chief Customer Officer, Energy Australia

Bruce Thompson – Acting Chief Operations Officer, GreenSync

Melissa O’Neill – General Manager for Corporate Affairs, CitiPower Powercor

Rhod Ellis Jones – Principal, Ellis Jones; co-founder & board member, Shared Value Project

Melinda Scaringi – Director, Ellis Jones
