The Clean Energy Council is pleased to announce the appointment of Morgan Rossiter to the position of Policy Director for Offshore Wind.
Prior to her Clean Energy Council role as Senior Policy Officer in the Market, Investment and Grid policy team, where she focused on transmission access reform, Morgan previously spent over 10 years working in the oil and gas industry across Australia and Singapore. She brings her deep expertise in logistics, shipping, and large-scale infrastructure projects, as well as a Masters of Environment and Sustainability, a Bachelor of International Business (Logistics and Supply Chain), and professional certification from the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers.
Morgan says: ‘It’s an extremely exciting time for offshore wind in Australia. The pace and scale of growth is exceptional, but I see this as well-aligned with the opportunity to deliver clean electrons generated by our offshore wind farms into our grids.
The next six months will be focused on ensuring we can elevate the voice of offshore wind in Australia, and ensure we are laying out a solid strategy to set the industry up for long term success.
I am keen to bring my experience to the challenge of supporting the industry as it grows. Personally, this role is bringing together all my favourite things – the ocean, reducing emissions and really, really big ships. It doesn’t get much better!’
At the APAC Offshore Wind and Green Hydrogen Summit this August, Morgan moderated the panel discussion, 'Australia's Role in Driving Offshore Wind Growth in the Asia Pacific Region', an expertly run session with a focus on supply chains and the need for strong government leadership to drive offshore wind in Australia.
Morgan kept the conservations flowing along with panelists Matthew Dickie (RWE), Fernando Santamaria (Iberdrola), Henriette Holm (Orsted Australia), Eric Antoons (Parkwind) and Danny Nielsen (Vestas). Morgan’s succinct final question, 'What should we pause, stop and start', really had the panelists thinking.
