VIC YWP PD Seminar: Carbon Neutrality

VIC YWP PD Seminar: Carbon Neutrality
Our water sector is currently responsible for the largest proportion of government carbon emissions. In response, the state government has set a requirement for all metropolitan water authorities to reach zero net emissions by 2030. To achieve this we will need to be leaders in climate change mitigation and adaptation. The question remains however; what will this shift towards carbon neutrality look like?

The Australian Water Association Young Water Professionals (Vic) are hosting a professional development seminar on carbon neutrality. Join us on Thursday, 16 August 2018 as we hear from three knowledgeable speakers about their experiences within this field.

·       John Day is the current lead of the Intelligent Water Network’s (IWN) Energy Optimisation Network, as well as the Executive Manager of Operations at North East Water. He will discuss North East Water’s progressive journey towards carbon neutrality, as well as what’s happening within the wider water network

·       Jean-Michel Seillier works within the Water Division of Veolia Australia. He will discuss Veolia’s international experience assisting clients around the world, both in industry and the public sector, to meet their energy challenges. He will share some information on projects currently at the development stage in ANZ, and describe some initiatives that are part of their dedicated $90 Million research and development program VERI.

·       Barbara Blake works within the Renewable Energy division at DELWP. Barbara will discuss the pre-feasibility study undertaken for the Bendigo Pumped Hydro Storage project in the mine shafts beneath the city. She will present on the outcomes of the study and the energy opportunities it provides for the region at the local level.
