Managing Director, Energy Transition Hub
Rebecca is the Managing Director of the Energy Transition Hub in Australia. Over the last two years, the Energy Transition Hub has explored the impact of a large scale hydrogen sector on the Australian energy system, including the impact on optimal electrolyser location (off and on-grid) of i) electrolyser capital costs; ii) the share of renewable electricity and the capacity of electrolysers to provide demand response to benefit the energy system as a whole if grid-connected; and iii) the magnitude of hydrogen generation (export and domestic) and number of electrolysers in the system.
Rebecca has held senior management or board-level roles in government, commercial and not-for-profit entities. Rebecca was a General Manager at the Climate Change Authority in Australia until May 2014. She was also a member of the Domestic Offsets Integrity Committee advising the Australian government on rules for creating carbon credits from the land sector under the Carbon Farming Initiative.
