Coal & The Future of Energy 2024

18 July 2024

8:00 AM - 1:30 PM AET

Brisbane Marriott Hotel | Australia

Searching for clarity on the path to a carbon-free future

Coal markets remain resilient but there is an air of instability about the future, as energy transition goals proliferate and the regulatory noose tightens on emitters. The energy transition is supercharging electricity demand, accelerating the need for low-carbon technologies such as renewables, ESS and Hydrogen that are struggling to deploy at the pace required. Coal is benefitting, particularly in Asia where it really matters, but for how long can this paradigm endure?

Join us on 18 July at the Marriott Hotel in Brisbane, Australia for the 14th edition of Wood Mackenzie’s Coal and the Future of Energy Forum to hear the latest insights from the mining, steel and renewables industry as coal navigates in the transition to a carbon-free world.

This is your opportunity to gain valuable insights from subject matter experts at Wood Mackenzie and industry representation from mining companies, mine operators, steel makers, power generators, equipment & technology providers, and investors.
