Urban Sustainability, City of Melbourne
John has spent 10 years working across the public and not for profit sector in energy efficiency, renewables and sustainability strategy. John is experienced in planning, implementing and monitoring energy and carbon reduction programs for business and government.
Joining the City of Melbourne at the beginning of 2015, John was a key team member responsible for the delivery of the Melbourne Renewable Energy Project (MREP). The MREP marks the first time in Australia that a group of local governments, cultural institutions, universities and corporations have collectively purchased renewable energy from a newly built facility. The project resulted in the construction of the Crowlands Wind Farm near Ararat and has the potential to be replicated by other large energy users – delivering savings to customers and enabling new renewable energy projects to proceed.
