ABOUT SoERC 2021

SoERC-main-image.png

The Energy Research Institutes Council for Australia (ERICA) is running its 2nd national State of Energy Research Conference (SoERC) – the inaugural conference having been held in Canberra in July, 2019.

 

This year, the Monash Energy Institute is coordinating and hosting this conference as the 2021 chairing organisation for ERICA.

Transitioning to a net zero emission energy system will require ongoing research, large-scale innovation, and a multidisciplinary approach. Fossil fuels still provide 94% of Australia’s total energy needs, and we are installing renewable energy at the fastest rate (per capita) of any nation. Both the magnitude and the rate of change will require extensive research to address the challenges of the energy transition. 
 
SoERC will highlight advances in energy research in Australia; ranging across fields including social science, policy, economics, regulation, design, engineering, computer science, and the physical and natural sciences. The event will include eminent keynote and plenary speakers with invited speakers in specialised parallel sessions. There will also be energy innovation pitches, technology demonstrations, and media and poster sessions. SoERC will provide a snapshot of current innovations, articulate research impact, and showcase collaborations to enable Australia’s sustainable, reliable, affordable, and fair energy transition. 
 
The conference is aimed at researchers, decision-makers in Federal and State governments, industry professionals, consultants, NGOs, and anyone with an interest in energy sector research. 
 
Join us to learn about research and development in this continuously evolving sector, explore pathways to address the energy transition, and identify potential collaborations among university researchers and industry research partners. 

 

We will be opening the call for poster abstracts shortly.
