In Brisbane last week the Energy Security Board Chair, Dr Kerry Schott and Minister for Natural Resources, Mines and Energy The Hon. Dr Anthony Lynham MP led a frank discussion on how to ensure the sustainable growth of renewable energy and the role industry must play in helping to shape national energy policy.

The event, “Evolving the conversation: Australia’s energy future,” was hosted by the Toowoomba and Surat Basin Enterprise and Brighter, an initiative of APPEA, to bring together 100 business leaders to examine the parallel development of the onshore gas and renewable energy industries.  Dr Schott and Dr Lynham MP were joined by APPEA Chief Executive Andrew McConville, Director of UQ Centre for Natural Gas Professor Andrew Garnett and EDL Energy Head of Corporate Affairs, Lisa France.
