EMANZ Conference 2018

When:  9 & 10 May 2018
Where: Auckland

2018 will be the first EMANZ conference held under a new political direction and we welcome new Ministers for Energy & Resources, the Environment and Climate Change.

We’re reflecting this increased emphasis on emissions and climate change in our theme this year. “Energising a low emissions economy” will extend our understanding of how energy efficiency and productivity can be at the forefront of driving this transition. This theme reaches out to a wider audience than the energy sector and we expect to see our conference grow even stronger as a result.
