Gordon’s expertise lies in climate risk modelling, emissions projections, energy and carbon policy development, decarbonisation technologies and energy management. Gordon has worked with a number of governments on the development of energy and greenhouse gas programs and policies, and is arguably one of Australia’s leading forecasters of emissions reduction trajectories, regularly reviewing forecasts of Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions and assessing actions to reduce those emissions.
As well as heading government consulting projects and providing policy advice, Gordon takes a lead role in advising clients in the mining, minerals processing and oil and gas sectors. He has assessed major processing facilities with a particular focus on upstream oil and gas. He also provides technical assessments for a variety of clean energy technologies including large scale solar PV, bioenergy and geothermal energy.
Gordon has a PhD in Chemical Engineering and is a Fellow of the Institute of Chemical Engineers (IChemE). He is also a member of Standards Australia’s EN001 Energy Auditing Technical Panel.
