Statement by the Australian Energy Council on Terry Effeney

The Australian Energy Council is saddened by the passing of Terry Effeney, who made a significant and lifelong contribution to the energy sector.

The Australian Energy Council’s Chief Executive Matthew Warren said Mr Effeney was a highly respected and valued leader in the energy industry. “Terry not only helped shape Queensland’s energy industry in a number of senior roles, but also played an important part in the development of national energy policy.

“He was both a director and Chair of Energy Networks Australia and a senior executive in a number of commercial roles.  More recently, Terry brought his expert insights to his role as Chair of the Queensland Energy Security Taskforce and to the advisory panel of the Finkel Review into the National Electricity Market.

"Terry’s friendship, leadership skills and knowledge will be sadly missed by us all. Our industry-wide discussions will be the poorer for his absence.

"On behalf of the Australian Energy Council and its members I extend our sincere condolences to Terry’s family.”
