David has over 17 years’ experience in the electricity industry and has held executive positions in two State-owned electricity utilities. He has spent the past 6 years as a senior consultant to industry participants specialising in regulation of distribution networks, DNSP customer engagement, renewable/new technology feasibility studies and business development. David is fascinated by the challenges and opportunities facing regulated DNSP’s as they transition to a new energy-demand paradigm that sees consumer behaviour leading technology and service demand changes that can present “make or break” opportunities for DNSPs.
A veteran in the electricity industry, David is passionate about the development of a low-carbon electricity system focussed on the needs of all consumers. He co-founded and currently serve as the Managing Director of Power Ledger, a start up using blockchain technology to provide a transparent, audit-able and automated market trading and clearing mechanism for the sale of surplus renewable energy generated on-site at multi-unit/multi-tenanted residential and commercial developments and at homes and businesses connected to microgrids and the distribution network.
