This panel of experts will discuss and explore future energy pathways and possibilities for Tasmania, with questions from the audience. The key question the panelists will be asked to briefly reflect on to kick-start the discussion is: what will the energy sector look like in Tasmania in 2050, and why? With a diverse panel comprising expertise on Australian energy policy strategy, climate change, energy markets, and poles and wires, the discussion will challenge us to think broadly about the possibilities for future energy demand and supply in Tasmania.
