University of the Third Age

As we live longer and healthier lives, the need to keep our minds – as well as our bodies – active becomes more important.

The University of the Third Age (U3A) is one of a handful of organisations which provides learning opportunities for members aged 50+. 

On 20 July 2017, I had the privilege to speak to U3A in Deepdene on energy affordability and reliability. 



Australian Clean Energy Summit Gala Dinner Q&A

It was a pleasure to participate in a Q&A with journalist Annabel Crabb in front of more than 500 guests at the Australian Clean Energy Summit Gala Dinner on 18 July in Sydney.

The Clean Energy Council, headed up by Chief Executive Kane Thornton, is the peak body representing Australia’s renewable energy and battery storage sector. Their Summit brings together delegates from nearly 200 organisations, ranging from industry to investors.

I spoke with Annabel about the trilemma of affordability, reliability and transitioning to a lower emissions future.





COAG Energy Council meeting

On 14 July, Australia’s federal, state and territory energy ministers met in Brisbane for the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) 12th Energy Council meeting. 

Following the eight month review led by Australia’s Chief Scientist Dr Alan Finkel, the Energy Council agreed to immediately act on 49 of the 50 recommendations.

As the report was presented to COAG leaders just five weeks ago, these significant reforms have been agreed to in record time. They will help drive down power prices and ensure we have a more reliable system well into the future.

The meeting communique can be found here.




C-M Concrete Products visit

It was great to visit C-M Concrete Products on 13 July with Federal Member for Forde Bert van Manen and meet the director of the family business Phil Thomas.

Specialising in precast civil engineering products, their “Litterbank” could go a long way in reducing waste in our waterways.



Global Change Institute's Challenge of Change Lecture

On 12 July, I was privileged to deliver The University of Queensland Global Change Institute’s (GCI) Challenge of Change Lecture to over 400 guests.

The GCI is an independent source of innovative research, ideas and advice for addressing the challenges of the changing world.

I outlined the trilemma that Australia faces as our energy system undergoes its greatest transition in over a century and the Turnbull Government’s determination to ensure affordable and reliable energy while lowering emissions.





Queensland University of Technology visit and speech

I was delighted to be invited by Vice-Chancellor Professor Peter Coaldrake to speak at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) on 12 July about energy reform.

It was fantastic to also visit QUT’s “The Cube” and robotics centre where I had the opportunity to meet and chat with staff about our mutual work in the energy and environment sectors.

QUT is at the forefront of innovation when it comes to helping protect the Great Barrier Reef. Their underwater robot (pictured) is a world first invention!







Visit to Little Learners childcare

On 6 July, I visited Little Learners childcare in Camberwell as part of NAIDOC week and to see their display celebrating Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders culture, history and language. 

NAIDOC stands for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee. It is an opportunity for all Australians to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and to recognise the contributions that Indigenous Australians make to our country and our society.

This year’s theme is Our Language Matters in recognition of the vital role Indigenous languages play in promoting community wellbeing and culture.





Servants Community Housing

Servants Community Housing is an important organisation providing affordable accommodation and safe housing for vulnerable people in my electorate.

On 6 July, it was terrific to visit Servants Community Housing to discuss how plans for the new women’s shelter are progressing with CEO Amanda Donohue and Chairman Warren Clark.

During my visit, I got to chat with some of the residents including Phil who couldn’t wait to show this devoted Blues fan his Tiger’s memorabilia.  





Small business lunch

On 6 July, I attended a small business lunch at Colombo's in Balwyn where I was able to speak with local business owners about the importance of ensuring Australia’s energy security and affordability.

The Turnbull Government’s small business tax cuts and $20,000 instant asset write-off are increasing business confidence.

It’s small business – not government – which create jobs. 


Planting trees at Beckett Park

On 6 July, it was terrific to join Kooyong’s Green Army at Beckett Park in Balwyn and join in planting trees as part of their mission to promote conservation practices.


Green Army has helped many young people learn the skills to become employed in the sustainability sector.
