We've all been experiencing energy bill shock – and seeing countless headlines about it – as the cost-of-living crisis worsens.

Meanwhile, the way households use power is undergoing a radical transformation, as Australia's 100-year-old energy infrastructure grapples with renewables, electric vehicles and home batteries.

For this Frontier Forum, join our expert panellists online as they discuss how we'll need to renegotiate our access to the energy grid as consumers in a net-zero world.
