This month Philip Link, our Head of Partnerships, visited the Northern Territory and met with representatives of NT Polish Association. This event marks the beginning of our beautiful collaboration.
EU delegation to the Northern Territory consisted of 18 trade and investment commissioners, under the leadership of the EU Ambassador to Australia Michael Pulch. Jakub Wilchelm, Head of the Polish Investment and Trade Agency in Australia, our trusted partner, joined the delegation together with Philip Link, who represented Polish Australian Business Forum.
The main purpose of the mission was to continue the dialog between the government and businesses of EU and NT and discuss objectives of the FTA between the EU and Australia.
The business environment in Northern Territory is truly amazing - says Phil - Business opportunities here are massive, in particular within gas, agriculture, renewable energy, hydrogen and space sectors, and the local government provides tremendous incentives to bring more industry into the state.
We are looking forward to collaborating with the NT Polish Association in the future!
Thank you for attending the launch of the Western Australian Chapter of the Polish Australian Business Forum. We hope you enjoyed our event.
We were delighted with the turnout (both, in-person and virtually!). So many of you stayed afterwards for networking and made new, fantastic connections. The Liberty staff commented that they really enjoyed the vibe. Did you?

It was great to see how many of you were already inquiring about our next event in Perth, which we plan for 21st of July 2021.
You can now watch the recording of our recent webinar Identifying Energy Transition Opportunities for Collaboration and Technology Exchange on our Youtube channel. WATCH HERE
Yesterday, together with the Banksia Foundation and Polish Investment and Trade Agency, we hosted a virtual webinar on Identifying Energy Transition Opportunities for Collaboration and Technology Exchange.
We would like to thank to our wonderful host Graz Van Egmond, who encouraged an exciting and very informative discussion, and to all speakers: Jakub Wilchelm (PAIH), Chris Bolesta (European Commission), Marta Babicz (National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management, Poland), Anna Skarbek (ClimateWorks Australia), Marta Piszcz (Greenevo), Philip Link (EnergyLink Services, PABF), who dedicate their time to tackle one of the most urgent issues of our times.
Special thanks to our "behind the scenes" organisers of the event: Dorota Bacal (RACE for 2030, PABF) and Rafal Jarosz (PAIH). This event would not be possible without you!
Stay tuned! Recording of the webinar will be available soon.
We are looking forward to announcing next webinar in this series.
Polish Australian Energy Dialogue
It is of the highest importance to recognise that climate change, and its consequence – the global temperature rise that we are currently experiencing, is a direct result of human activity. Every day, our actions are shaping the future of the next generations living on this planet.
The increase in global temperature is attributed to the accumulation of so-called greenhouse gasses (GHGs) in the atmosphere. These include carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide and fluorinated gases. Human activity and rapid civil development over the last few decades have given rise to an imbalance in natural concentrations of GHGs in the atmosphere.
Globally, the electricity and heat generation sector accounts for roughly 30% of the total GHGs emissions, followed by 16% generated by transportation. Therefore, decarbonising these two sectors are among the most important tasks of our times if we are to control and curtail the effects of Climate Change.
Global electricity generation has increased rapidly over the last few decades at an almost linear rate of 450 billion kilowatt hours per year, with no sign that this trend will slow down in the foreseeable future. This is due to increases in both the number and wealth of the global population. Additionally, with the decreasing price of energy storage solutions, the electrification of the transport sector is expected to become more prominent over the next decade, shifting even more emissions to the electricity and heat production sector.
The growing need for supplying higher amounts of electricity, along with the consequences of its production, has forced people to search for alternative and more sustainable generation sources. This has led to incredible growth in the renewable energy industry, which currently accounts for generating roughly 26% of the global electricity demand.
A rapid transition requires innovation and is very often based on unprecedented partnerships. The collaboration between The Banksia Foundation, The Polish Investment and Trade Agency (PAIH) and The Polish Australian Business Forum (PABF) was established to provide a communication and engagement platform between Poland and Australia within the emission reduction and energy areas. It aims to identify the synergies between these two countries and explore critical points of collaboration and technology exchange in the race to a Net Zero future.
Polish Investment and Trade Agency, our Strategic Partner just released a new podcast on Australian business ecosystem.
"First time in English! A podcast by Polish Investment and Trade Agency wandered to Australia - the land of business opportunities for Polish companies. To understand the full economic potential of Australia, we've mapped the spatial characteristics of the Australian economy but also discuss a wide spectrum of key issues like business culture, geopolitics, climate change and even demographics.
