Australian Energy Council Congratulates Paula Conboy

The Australian Energy Council congratulates Paula Conboy for her successful leadership of the Australian Energy Regulator over the past five years.

The Australian Energy Council’s Chief Executive Sarah McNamara said that Ms Conboy would leave a strong legacy as a successful leader of the AER at a critical period for the energy sector, and as a valuable member of the Energy Security Board.

“Ms Conboy is highly respected across the energy industry for her well-considered approach to often extremely challenging issues.

“Her technical expertise and constructive approach to dealing with stakeholders, whilst delivering notable regulatory determinations, made Paula a real asset to the AER, and a pleasure to work with.

“We wish Ms Conboy well for her future endeavours, and hope that she is not lost to the energy industry,” Ms McNamara said.
