Members of the Regulator

The term Clean Energy Regulator refers to:

  • the independent statutory authority, comprising the Chair and Members–referred to as the Regulator, and
  • the agency that supports the Regulator–referred to as the agency.

Members of the Regulator are appointed by the responsible minister under the Clean Energy Regulator Act 2011, and are required to have substantial experience or knowledge in relevant fields. The Chair holds office on a full-time basis. All other Members hold office on a part-time basis.

The Regulator determines our strategic direction and policies, and is accountable for our regulatory decisions according to the legislation we administer. In addition to their collective responsibilities, Members of the Regulator each apply their expertise to a specific area of focus. This adds depth to the Regulator’s appreciation of the operating environment and enables agency staff to draw directly on Members’ knowledge and experience. Members provide an update on their area of focus at each Regulator meeting. The Regulator Members for 2016–17 were:

  • Ms Chloe Munro, who completed her five-year term as Chair on 31 March 2017
  • Ms Virginia Malley, who was re-appointed for an additional three-year term on 4 June 2017
  • Ms Anne Brown, who was re-appointed for an additional three-year term on 4 June 2017
  • Mr Michael D’Ascenzo
  • Dr Peter Davis, and
  • Ms Jody Swirepik, who was acting Chair from 1 April–1 July 2017

Information about our Members is at Appendix C.
