Olivia Kember

Position: Strategy and Policy Manager

Working across Energetics’ suite of strategic advisory services, Olivia supports both private sector and government clients to understand energy and carbon management risks and opportunities – particularly as Australia’s energy generation mix shifts in favour of renewable energy.

As Head of Policy, Olivia provided analysis and commentary on national electricity policy and state government decarbonisation strategies.  She presented and engaged with stakeholders across government, peak industry bodies, finance, media and NGOs. 

An accomplished professional, Olivia directed and co-authored many publications informing the decarbonisation of Australia’s energy mix and helping organisations understand and respond to the economic and social impacts of climate change. Her most recent work, A Switch in Time: Enabling the Electricity Sector's Transition to Net Zero Emissions, has been cited in reports by the International Energy Agency, the Queensland Renewable Energy Expert Panel, the Climate Change Authority and First State Super.
