The French-Australian Chamber of Commerce & Industry is organising an Energy & Resources video conference, Financing Renewable Energy in Australia, on Tuesday 29 September from 1pm to 2pm AEST.
With over $4.3b invested in clean energy in 2019 and a total of 26,000 employees working in the industry, renewable energy investment occupies a growing position in the Australian economy and can play a key role in the COVID recovery. In order to meet the challenges posed by the much-needed transition to clean energy, the sector requires financing from both Public and Private sources.
The Forum will offer an opportunity to gain some insights on ongoing developments in the Renewable Energy investment industry.
VIDEO CONFERENCE WEDNESDAY 30 SEPTEMBER | NORDICS INSPIRING AUSTRALIA … FROM RENEWABLES TO SOCIAL WELFARE
Wednesday 30 September 2020 – 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm AEST
With Guest Speaker Andrew Wear
What can Australia learn from Nordic and Northern European Countries?
In the months and years ahead, as Australia seeks to re-build its economy after COVID-19, Australia can take inspiration from Nordic and Northern European countries – many of which have been achieving outcomes that far surpass ours.
Norway not only has the highest living standards in the world, but also extremely low social and economic inequality. It manages to achieve these outcomes by fostering participation in the labour market, investing in education, redistributing income through the tax and welfare system and investing the proceeds of its oil and gas revenue.
Similarly, through a focus on vocational training, R&D and innovation, Germany is proving that it is possible to have a thriving manufacturing sector in a high-tax, high-cost and highly regulated economy. By supporting the involvement of fathers in parenting and by legislating to secure equal pay, Iceland has topped the gender equality rankings for a decade and counting. And through long-term investment in renewable electricity, energy efficiency and sustainable cities, Denmark has managed to halve its per capita carbon emissions.
Solutions exist – we just need to know where to find them. Understanding how other countries around the world are working to crack the big problems helps illuminate the sort of action required to make a difference.
Join Andrew Wear at this exclusive event, where he will discuss these ideas and more, drawn from his recently published book, Solved! How other countries have cracked the world’s biggest problems and we can too.
