Get an insight into energy strategy, market movements and players at our next event, featuring Samantha Tough - a Director of the Clean Energy Finance Corporation, Synergy and Saracen Mineral Holdings Ltd.

Samantha will offer Young Energy Professionals a high-level review of the Clean Energy Finance Corporation (CEFC). CEFC is a $10 billion fund established by the Australian Government in 2012. CEFC invests commercially to increase the flow of funds into renewable energy, energy efficiency and low emissions technologies. Working with strategic co-financing partners, CEFC plays an important role not only in leveraging additional private sector financing, but also in educating the finance sector and accelerating Australia's transition towards a more competitive economy.

Samantha brings over 25 years of deep and diverse experience in public and private companies to CEFC. This includes executive positions in a range of industries - from energy to resources, infrastructure to engineering, and venture capital to technology. Having held over 20 board roles, Samantha will also speak to YEPs about the value of building an effective network and about adapting to and understanding new industries.
