UK Pioneer to Lead Australian Clean Energy Council
Wednesday, 11th April 2012 at 3:20 pm

UK clean energy pioneer David Green is to lead Australia’s Clean Energy Council as its new Chief Executive Officer.

Clean Energy Council Board Chairman Michael Fraser said Green had been at the forefront of clean energy policy in the UK for more than two decades.

“As Australia moves towards a clean energy future, the Clean Energy Council – under David’s leadership – will play a significant role in working with governments and industry to develop the policy and practice that enables Australia to emerge as a key player in this field,” Fraser said.

Green said it was an honour to be invited to lead the Clean Energy Council.

“I have long admired the innovative ideas that Australian policy-makers and industry – in particular the membership of the CEC – have developed on energy efficiency and renewable energy, a number of which have positioned Australia as a leader, an innovator and an inspiration to the rest of the world,”  Green said.

“As Australia and its international partners seek solutions to the challenges of securing clean, affordable energy, I look forward to the CEC growing as an effective advocate of the policies and action needed to secure a cleaner energy future."  

David Green worked as the founding Chief Executive of the UK Business Council for Sustainable Energy (UKBCSE) from 2001 to the start of this year, and is an Executive Director of the International Business Council for Sustainable Energy, whose members include the Clean Energy Council.

He has worked with the UK government on clean energy policy, energy efficiency and strategies for low-income households. As a regular visitor to Australia, he has advised various parts of the Victorian Government, as well as the US Department of Energy, the New Zealand Government and key institutions of the European Union.

“I plan to develop a fresh vision for the organisation that builds on its work with the CEC’s growing membership of more than 600 energy efficiency and clean energy businesses, ensuring clean energy is at the heart of policies for a secure, sustainable energy future for Australia,” Green said.
