During this event, key leaders from Australia’s energy landscape will provide you with an overview of Australia’s decarbonisation commitments and how the country is harnessing technology to help drive the energy transition. You will also hear from leading research institutes and technology businesses at the forefront of Australia’s technology-driven future.

The event will culminate with a showcase of three of Australian leading low emissions technology companies, each providing a short, sharp pitch about their technology followed by a panel discussion about how their technologies are not only assisting Australia’s energy transition, but also have the potential to be applied to international markets.

These companies are attending the GCEAF after successfully pitching their technology to a panel of esteemed judges. The program, LETs Pitch, was run by NERA in partnership with the Australian Government to coincide with the GCEAF.
