[i3] Melbourne Luncheon with Port of Newcastle

The Port of Newcastle, like many other businesses, is adopting strategies to shift away from fossil-based systems of energy production and consumption and move to renewable energy sources such as wind, solar and batteries.

In this luncheon presentation in partnership with Macquarie Asset Management, Simon Byrne, Chief Commercial Officer of the Port of Newcastle, discussed how the Port is embarking on a number of initiatives as part of its diversification strategy to successfully transition into a hub for renewable energy.

This diversification is critical to ensure a strong, thriving Port is created, that will continue to support local jobs and the economic prosperity of the NSW and Hunter Region for generations to come. To do this the Port of Newcastle management team are focused on realising projects now, as it is the actions that are taken now that will shape the Port and the Hunter region over the next 10, 20, 50 years and beyond.
