Energy Council thanks Audrey Zibelman

The Australian Energy Council congratulates and thanks Audrey Zibelman for her leadership of the Australian Energy Market Operator over the past four years.

The Australian Energy Council’s Chief Executive, Sarah McNamara, said Ms Zibelman would leave a mark as head of AEMO, and as a contributor to the work of the Energy Security Board.

“Ms Zibelman was appointed to the role at a pivotal time for both the market operator and the energy industry broadly.

“A significant challenge was undoubtedly managing reliability and system security in a rapidly changing grid as more renewables entered the National Electricity Market (NEM).

“In particular, Ms Zibelman guided the development of the NEM’s first Integrated System Plan, which was designed as a whole-of-system roadmap to respond to this shifting energy dynamic and to guide future developments.

“Ms Zibelman brought to the role new ideas and an enthusiasm for change. This resulted in many robust debates with industry. Ms Zibelman’s passion for evolving the industry was her driving force and we respected her intentions and focus.

“We wish Ms Zibelman well in her new role.”
