Renewable energy changemaker

Dr Glenn Platt’s visionary insights, new technologies, and innovative start-ups are helping to drive the world’s renewable energy transition.

Glenn has played a leading role in many pioneering energy projects across Australia, including the first Virtual Power Station. Through his work on distributed energy management, Glenn pioneered much of the “demand side” work now seen as key to the future of Australia’s energy system. 

He has spun out 8 businesses working with solar, batteries and clean energy and has contributed expert advice and analysis on the future of energy to governments in Australia and overseas.

Glenn led the development of HVAC-management technology now installed in thousands of buildings worldwide, and his research helped catalyse an entirely new field of energy efficiency: adaptive building control.
