About Power + Utilities Australia

Australia’s energy transition ambition calls for generators and networks to unite with large energy users and consumers to define and build the grid of the future.  This new era of energy democracy and energy citizenship poses the key question at the heart of Power + Utilities Australia; that is, what does the energy system of the future look like?

Held annually in Melbourne over two days, Power + Utilities Australia is key forum bringing together opposing voices, a diversity of opinions and experiences, to have difficult conversations around the energy transition. Join us as we facilitate conversations, share ideas, join the dots and make connections that disrupt and evolve the energy sector for 2050 and beyond.

Power + Utilities is comprised of the Leadership Summit, a B2B exhibition with one technical content stage and start up hub which combine to attract the leading voices of Australia’s utilities to discuss and debate the challenges and opportunities of the energy transition.

Our Story

In response to the changing energy environment and rapid introduction of renewable energy into the system, Power Australia was launched in 2018, to bring the Australian industry its first power conference and exhibition focused on providing a forum where the industry was covered from end-to-end: generation, transmission and distribution through retail, to the end use customer.

In 2019, Power + Utilities Australia merged with Australian Utility Week, owned by Clarion Events, and in 2020 subsequently rebranded to Enlit Australia as part of the Clarion global brand that has unified the POWERGEN and Utility Week events in Europe, Asia and Africa.

After two years as Enlit, we are excited to bring back the Power + Utilities, a brand that speaks authentically to the Australian energy industry, to continue the decarbonisation journey to net zero.
