Events @ IEEE UWA


Posting our consistent weekly Thursday event at 5pm here is easy, but we can do better than that. Not only will we promise to host additional site visits, and workshops, but post all currently advertised opportunities (from professional organisations we're aware of) for you to network with industry, updated every Sunday.

National Electrical Roadmap

  • Engineers Australia Auditorium 217 Murray St West Perth, WA, 6005 Australia (map)

SYNOPSIS The world's electricity systems are experiencing the most profound upheaval since Edison and Tesla in the late 1800's. On current trends it is plausible that up to 50% of Australia's electricity volume (MWh) in 2050 will be generated by millions of distributed sources at the polar-opposite end of the system from its original design. Our traditional 'poles and wires' networks will have evolved into digitised, many-to-many transactive platforms.

Given this scale of change, Australia is globally recognised as one of the locations where the future of electricity will emerge first. The transformation is systemic rather than peripheral or incremental. It demands cultural and architectural shifts beyond the capacity of any one institution.

The CSIRO/ENA Electricity Network Transformation Roadmap was born in this highly dynamic context. Informed by the four 2050 scenarios developed earlier by the sector and CSIRO, the CSIRO/ENA Roadmap was designed to provide pathways for navigating Australia’s critical next decade of transformation to 2027. Co-developed by diverse customer and industry representatives, the Roadmap applied an ‘ecosystemic’ approach to how Australia can navigate the distinct but interrelated topics of Technologies, Economics, Regulation, Pricing, Tariffs and Business Models.

This presentation will provide a broad overview of the Roadmap and highlight how industry practitioners may make use of it.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER - Mr Mark Paterson

Mark Paterson joined Horizon Power as General Manager of the Consumer Energy division in November 2016. He spent the previous six years at CSIRO, where he led the Electricity Grids and Renewable Energy research program. During this time he chaired the national Future Grid Forum and was Program Director for the Electricity Network Transformation Roadmap. He has also chaired the Standards Australia AS/NZS4755 Demand Response standards committee and is an associate member of the GridWise Architecture Council in the United States.

Under Mark’s leadership, the Consumer Energy division is developing a range of new technologies and business offerings that will increase customer choice, accelerate access to renewable energy and support reliable, cost-effective electricity for all.
