Foresighting Forum 2019

The theme of Foresighting Forum 2019 was Take charge: Data powering better outcomes for consumers. The forum hosted in Sydney in February brought together consumer advocates, government and industry to discuss the interests of residential and small business energy consumers.

The forum generated a vast amount of content rich material. In the spirit of knowledge sharing, we have made it available as an online resource for the benefit of stakeholders working in the energy sector.
