The Future of WA's Energy Network

Our Gold and Silver members are invited to attend the next Chairman's 20 for 2021. Following the release of the Hashtag Perth report in June last year, the Committee for Perth acknowledged that Perth has the capacity to be an innovation and climate change leader.

At this event, Ed Kalajzic, CEO of Western Power will provide a snapshot of the grid transformation journey the business is on and the future-focused work being done today to deliver secure, reliable, greener and affordable energy for decades to come.

Fast forward to 2040 – what will WA’s energy network look like? How will renewables and new innovative technologies change the way power is delivered and used by the WA community.
