Energy Supply Association of Australia appoints new CEO

The Energy Supply Association of Australia (ESAA) has appointed Matthew Warren as its new chief executive officer.

Currently the Clean Energy Council’s chief executive, Mr Warren was selected as esaa’s new CEO following a nationwide search, said ESAA Chairman Tony Concannon in October.

“We are delighted to have secured someone of Matthew’s standing to lead esaa in its vital task of representing the interests of Australia’s energy supply industry,” Mr Concannon said.

Mr Warren will take up the role of esaa’s CEO on 16 January.

“Australia currently stands at a crossroad confronting critical climate and energy challenges that will impact on the reliability of supply, needs of investors and cost of our energy supply for generations to come,” Mr Concannon said.

Mr Warren has led the Clean Energy Council since 2008 and has been a prominent voice in Australia’s energy and climate debates for many years.

He was previously the environmental writer for the Australian newspaper and holds a Bachelor of Economics with Honours from the University of Adelaide.
