Ecovantage CEO Bruce Easton visits the A2SE

Ecovantage CEO Bruce Easton was in Sydney last week to participate in Australia’s Second Summer Study on Energy Efficiency & Decentralised Energy. Presented by the Australian Alliance to Save Energy, (the A2SE) is an independent, not-for-profit coalition of business, research, government and public interest organisations who share a vision of an energy efficient future. The summer study forum provided a focused environment for leaders in the energy efficiency field to share ideas through informal and collaborative lectures. The three day forum allowed thorough discussion on key questions impacting the present and possible future of energy efficiency in Australia. Lectures included a study of the impact of the Clean Energy Future package, including the carbon price and what affect the upcoming Federal election may have on the course of current energy efficiency policy, including how the current incentives for energy efficiency may be affected by the Coalition’s proposed direct action program. The event also provided a great opportunity for industry leaders to network in an informal environment. Bruce Easton enjoyed the collaborative exchange of ideas, stating his enthusiasm for the event: “It was a tremendous success and a great opportunity for many to share their vision on the best way Australia can move forward into a low carbon future,” he said. “There is still much to achieve, but events such as this allow everyone to recognise that energy efficiency and demand management are key elements in the new economy of high energy prices and taking responsibility for waste. Energy efficiency is a huge opportunity and it also allows us to participate more successfully in a global community already well underway in this area.”
