Key Takeaways:

In the next decade, Australia has the opportunity to lead the world in demonstrating how to power its economy with renewables

India has huge renewable energy potential that can be deployed to meet its rising energy demand

The International Energy Agency has shown that there can be no more new oil and gas developments if the world is to avoid the worst impacts of rising emissions.

1 June 2022 (IEEFA Australia): The Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA) welcomes a new chief executive officer for its Australia/South Asia office in Amandine Denis-Ryan, replacing outgoing research director Tim Buckley.

Amandine Denis-Ryan joins IEEFA following a decade in leadership positions in the Monash University-affiliated body Climateworks Centre where she worked in a strategic role on a range of energy, finance and climate issues with a particular focus on obtaining net-zero commitments from state governments, businesses and investors.

In joining IEEFA, Amandine Denis-Ryan will play a crucial role in building and consolidating IEEFA’s team of evidenced-based research analysts in Australia and India to accelerate the transition to a diverse, sustainable and profitable energy economy.

Amandine Denis-Ryan believes we are entering a crucial period for the energy transition. 

“In the next decade, Australia has the opportunity to lead the world in demonstrating how to power its economy with renewables and capturing the economic opportunities associated with this shift.” 

“Similarly, India has huge renewable energy potential that can be deployed to meet its rising energy demand. The government has set ambitious climate targets, which it enhanced at COP26, creating massive opportunities for investment to accelerate into the development of low-carbon infrastructure assets.

“I have been impressed by IEEFA’s influence over the last decade in increasing the understanding of the financial risks associated with fossil fuel production. This work is particularly important today, as the International Energy Agency has shown that there can be no more new oil and gas developments if the world is to avoid the worst impacts of rising emissions.”

“I look forward to working with IEEFA’s impressive team of analysts in Australia and India and around the world to assist investors, governments and businesses make financially sound decisions that reduce rising emissions and support communities in transition.”
