Cleantech Conversations

A free webinar series by NCTCE

Join our free online events - Cleantech Conversations by NCTCE
With so much innovation and ‘pivoting’ happening in the cleantech industry as a result of these unprecedented times, we could not wait until 2021 to share these great stories with our NCTCE community.  We are excited to announce our series of virtual live events commencing from 28th May.

There is no doubt that despite the devastation wrought by the coronavirus, a post-COVID world offers a huge opportunity for the cleantech industry.  As the world collectively realises that we can’t return to ‘normal’, many are seeing this as a magic moment in time to re-shape economies, societies and improve the way we work and live. New technology, sustainability and collaboration will most certainly be part of this new landscape. Best of all, it looks like our political leaders are finally listening to scientists!

We have curated a program of live, interactive virtual events, tapping into our speaker alumni, industry innovators and thought leaders.  Some sessions will ponder the ‘big questions’ whilst others will drill down on innovations and case studies from each of the various cleantech sectors. You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions, network (virtually), learn and be inspired.

Funding Cleantech Start-ups – Start-up, Accelerator and Venture Capital perspectives

Supported by

Clean energy startups can find it tough to raise capital. They often involve commercialising innovative technology, with complex R&D, hardware as well as software, prototypes and pilot projects commonplace. All these aspects take time and relatively deep pockets before the technology starts to generate meaningful revenue. There’s great potential for financial rewards, but investors need to be motivated by more than monetary gain alone. They need to share the vision and the passion that founders in the sector have – to use technology to benefit society and the environment.

NCTCE Digital Masterclass: How to amplify organisation performance and sustainability simultaneously

Supported by
Sa Partners Logo

Organisations are struggling to keep up in the fast-paced ever changing world we live in. We are concerned about the environment but this often gets overruled by day to day business pressures and concerns. The COVID-19 pandemic has amplified the importance of sustainable business practices not only for meeting emission reduction and efficiency targets but also to build business resilience to protect against future disruption and meet consumer demand.

What’s good for the planet is good for business

In this Masterclass, presenters Brad Jeavons and Keivan Zokaei will introduce proven techniques that can be used within a division or organisation as a whole to achieve simultaneous organisation and environmental improvement by every team member. The approach draws on best practices implemented by SA Partners within organisations such as Marks & Spencer, Tesco, Unilever, Priestly’s Gourmet Delights and others.

The approach is known as Learn or Agile and Green. It provides for a new way of thinking to boost improvement efforts and create a positively charged work environment – whilst contributing to the long-term well-being of the environment. In a nutshell, it’s doing a lot more with a lot less!

Innovation clusters, along with the industry cohesiveness and transformation they instigate, will have an even bigger role in the disrupted economy that is coming. The recent pandemic, drought and bushfire crises have crystallized for Australian cleantech the importance of building a platform to ensure a united and effective voice. One that not only helps to forward the industry, but also educates on the unprecedented opportunity for climate mitigation solutions to play a part in the economic recovery. What does the Australian cleantech industry need to do to create this voice? Hear from European Cluster Manager of the Year and Cleantech Entrepreneurship Expert, Bianca Dragomir (Spain) and Nigel Murphy, Director of Earth Systems and Chair of the Victorian Cleantech Cluster as they share their clustering experience and discuss why post COVID-19, clustering is more important than ever.

How are our cleantech innovators preparing for the post-COVID19 world?

A post-pandemic world offers both immense opportunity and challenge for our cleantech innovators and producers. Whilst it has served to shine the light on the next crisis and the role cleantech can play, crucial investment and research funding is now being channelled into more immediate and short term recovery projects, or has dried up altogether. Hear from Australian cleantech innovators on how they are powering through the crisis and preparing for the ‘next normal’.
