Transitioning Australia-Japan Energy Partnership  Towards a Carbon-Neutral 2050 

Adelaide Convention and Exhibition Centre, 11-12 April 2024 

The AJBCC, through its Clean Energy Transition Subcommittee, in partnership with the JABCC and with the support of the Government of South Australia, held a conference in Adelaide on 11-12 April 2024: Transitioning Australia-Japan Energy Partnership Towards a Carbon-Neutral 2050.

The networking reception and dinner addressed by Minister Tom Koutsantonis and the National Reconstruction Fund’s Martijn Wilder AM on 11 April was followed by a full day of discussions on 12 April at the Adelaide Convention Centre.

As energy is pivotal to the Australia-Japan relationship, with Australia as Japan’s largest energy supplier and Japan as Australia’s largest market, the partnership’s evolution toward carbon-neutrality by 2050 is crucial. This commitment, reinforced by COP28, demands new industries, technologies, and trade approaches.

Close collaboration between governments and businesses is essential to implement pragmatic policy frameworks. Our event built on previous discussions, fostering ongoing collaboration between key stakeholders to develop sustainable agendas for future action.

Registrations were $300 (+GST) for AJBCC members and JABCC members, and $500 (+GST) for non-members. Registration for the conference has now closed.
