The science and economics tells us sustainable energy alternatives make sense. So, what's the missing link in the path to a clean and prosperous future? Hear from leading scientists, a City of Sydney Councillor and the NSW Minister for Energy and Environment.

Targets, safeguards and the future: these concepts feel abstract and far away. But the reality is, we have the technology solutions at hand, to drive the direction of where we're heading.

We know why we need a sustainable future, and this discussion brings together a spectrum of perspectives, to show how this is achievable.

  • Matt Kean MP, NSW Minister for Energy and Environment, offers perspective into the economic impacts and benefits of investing in alternative energy sources. 

  • Professor Anita Ho-Baillie, John Hooke Chair of Nanoscience and a world leader in perovskite solar energy cells, shares insights into solar photovoltaic research and its potential to produce cost-effective ways of energy generation. The research that Professor Ho-Baillie is leading at the University was also awarded 2.5 million federal funding

  • Professor Thomas Maschmeyer presents a case study on gelated zinc bromide batteries. An Australian breakthrough, this technology is scalable, affordable and safe.

  • Linda Scott, President of Local Government NSW (LGNSW) and City of Sydney Councillor, will talk about sustainability at a local level and community engagement.

  • Dr Tanya Fiedler from the University of Sydney Business School moderates this discussion. Dr Fiedler played a key role in the development of the University's Sustainability Strategy.
