Energy Council congratulates Anna Collyer

The Australian Energy Council congratulates Anna Collyer on her appointment as Chair of the Australian Energy Market Commission.

Welcoming the announcement, the Australian Energy Council’s Chief Executive, Sarah McNamara, said “Ms Collyer’s distinguished career as a lawyer and previous roles in the energy sector equip her extremely well to lead the AEMC.

“Her work on energy sector reform via the COAG Energy Council and the AEMC, and her proven track record of working constructively with government and industry stakeholders on energy market reforms represents an ideal blend of experience, skills and strategic knowledge.

“Ms Collyer’s appointment comes at an important time not just for the AEMC, but also for the Energy Security Board and the sector generally, which continues to wrestle with the challenges of an extended period of transformational change.

“I, along with the AEC’s members, wish Anna every success and look forward to working with her in this new and significant role.

“We also thank Merryn York for her leadership of the AEMC through this transitional period as Acting Chair.”
