EEC welcomes Cheryl Desha as new Board Director 31 March 2016
The Energy Efficiency Council has welcomed Cheryl Desha, Senior Lecturer in Sustainable Development at Queensland University of Technology to its Board of Directors.
Following the EEC's Board elections in November 2016, there was one vacancy remaining on the ten member Board, that of Education and Training expert.
This is a special Board position set out in the EEC's Rules of Association, recognising that for the sector to reach its full potential we need to continually build the capacity of Australia's energy efficiency professionals.
Luke Menzel, CEO of the EEC announced that, after an extensive search, the Board has appointed Cheryl Desha, Senior Lecturer in Sustainable Development at Queensland University of Technology.
Cheryl has spent the last several years focused on energy efficiency education. Beginning in 2013, she worked closely with the Department of Industry to lead a 6-university consortium in developing innovative energy efficiency capacity building resources for engineering students. Through this work, as well as a range of other projects, she has developed significant expertise around capacity building in the energy efficiency sector.
Cheryl will chair the Energy Efficiency Certification Scheme's Steering Committee, and will work closely with the EEC's sector development team as the EEC continues to expand its important efforts on training and certification.
