We are pleased to announce the Australasian Universities Power Engineering Conference will be held at the University of Tasmania in Hobart, Australia, and online, from 29 November to 3 December 2020.
The conference will facilitate face to face attendance as well as online participation. The priority is to come together in a manner which is safe, healthy and productive.
AUPEC is the premier conference in power engineering in Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia. This conference provides a forum for both university and industry researchers and experts in power engineering to discuss and share ideas, present results, reflect on past experiences and discuss future projects.
The scope of this conference is recent and original research and educational development in universities worldwide, and in particular in the Australian region in the area of power engineering.
Professor Michael Negnevitsky
University of Tasmania

Important things you need to know about the Online Portal:
- Use a laptop, notebook or desktop computer
- Google chrome is the recommended browser for the best user experience. Avoid having additional browser tabs open at the same time.
- Your login is personalised and cannot be shared.
ACCESS FROM WORK DEVICE
If you plan to join the webinar from your work computer or laptop you MUST ensure that your workplace firewall DOES NOT BLOCK ACCESS to the sessions and functions.
The online platform interfaces with Vimeo, Twilio, Vonage and Zoom so depending on your network settings, you may need your IT department to ‘allow’ these sites – this process is called ‘WHITELISTING’.
The streaming platforms which may be used during the conference are listed below. PLEASE check with your IT department as early as possible because it may take a few days for your request to be processed.

Hydro Tasmania is Australia’s largest generator of renewable energy. Through Battery of the Nation, we can play a key part in the future security, affordability and stability of Australia’s electricity grid as it transitions to more variable renewable energy. We stand ready to help create an energy future that’s clean, reliable and affordable.
TasNetworks is progressing Marinus link and the supporting North West Tasmanian Transmission Developments to support Australia’s continuing transition to a clean energy future. Together they will create billions in economic growth, thousands of jobs, and be a source of skills, training and workforce development in regional Tasmania and Victoria.
Working in collaboration with Australian universities and academics and our 19 member organisations, we are leading the development of the Australian power sector’s workforce with programs that ensure:
- a sustainable supply of skilled and diverse power engineering graduates to the energy industry,
- a strong power engineering education platform, and
- increased capability for innovation and collaboration in the Australia power sector
