Hear Tom Molomby speak on the emissions reduction opportunities in the electricity sector AND ask your questions - facilitated by the Barton groups


Like many Australians you may be excited about clean energy. With prices falling dramatically we should be able to look forward to lower energy bills, and lower pollution. Right now our energy system is being used as a political football by politicians that can’t seem to look past their gospel of coal and refuse to take any significant action to protect our climate.

GetUp has a vision that every household in Australia should have enough energy to keep the lights on, the food fresh and we should all be able to enjoy a hot shower without struggling. And have an  energy system that is set up for the benefit of Australians, not the big end of town.

Our speaker, Tom Molomby, will focus on the transformation of the eastern and south-eastern electricity grid over the next 20 years.

A number of topics will be touched on:

  • How the electricity grid is kept stable
  • Wind and solar power vs baseload power
  • Emerging energy opportunities (incl. big batteries and hydrogen)
  • How to operate a grid with 100% renewables
  • Opportunities on the consumer side (will a smart home be able to help?)
Tom Molomby works as an Energy Management Systems engineer for AEMO, the operator of the eastern, south-eastern and south-western electricity grids.

NOTE that Tom will be speaking as a chartered electrical engineer (ME MEngSci MIEAust CPEng NER), NOT as an employee of AEMO.

Come to our event on the potential transformation of the eastern and south-eastern electricity grid then ask the questions that you cant find clear answers for from politicians and the mainstream media

Australia deserves an energy system which benefits home owners and renters alike without imposing today's climate and health penalties.
