On 4 March ARENA and Minister for Industry the Hon Ian Macfarlane hosted a parliamentary event to showcase ARENA-funded projects.
It was impossible to showcase all of the renewable energy projects supported by ARENA but those on display did highlight the impressive range of work underway across Australia.
The projects covered all stages of the innovation pathway from research to pilot-scale demonstration and early commercial stage deployment. They included different renewable energy technologies as well as enabling technologies like storage and information portals.
The Minister took the time to meet all of the exhibitors and enjoyed learning more about their projects. In his address, the Minister acknowledged the work ARENA was doing and congratulated ARENA for being an agent of change in renewable energy.
ARENA Chair Greg Bourne and ARENA CEO Ivor Frischknecht also delivered short speeches at the well-attended event.
