Appointment of Scott Davis as Policy Advisor, Western Australia

The Australian Energy Council is pleased to announce the appointment of Scott Davis to a newly created role of Policy Advisor, Western Australia.

The Australian Energy Council’s General Manager Policy and Research, Ben Skinner, said he was delighted to have someone of Mr Davis’ calibre as the local face of the AEC in Western Australia.

“Scott is an outstanding choice and brings a wealth of experience to deal with the broad range of WA-specific policy matters,” Mr Skinner said.

Mr Davis has a strong background in the state’s energy and mining industries. He has significant experience in product development, marketing and price reform roles in the electricity sector. He had a pivotal role in developing, advocating and delivering demand based tariffs for Horizon Power customers.

Mr Davis has a particular depth of expertise in energy systems modelling, electricity pricing, energy storage and integration of renewable energy into isolated power systems.

“The AEC remains focussed on being a prominent voice for the industry and is committed to our policy advocacy program, and as such, Scott is particularly strong in translating complex technical issues into meaningful content for stakeholders and decision makers.

“Scott’s appointment will further expand the reach and influence of the AEC’s advocacy program,” Mr Skinner said.

Mr Davis is based in Perth.
