Emma Chessell

Working in the Sustainable Economies team, Emma was responsible for analysis and research including the preparation of state and territory policy benchmark assessments using CWC-modelled least-cost transition pathways, and contributing to briefing papers, reports and submissions for work with states and territories across several policy areas. She also maintained and applied the Policy Prioritisation Framework to support the Net Zero Futures Policy Forum.

Emma previously worked with the Brotherhood of St Laurence to represent vulnerable consumers through gas and electricity network price setting processes, and to advocate for a just transition through other relevant policy consultations. 

Before that, Emma worked for ten years across remote Australia in the deployment of remote area power systems and developing other renewable energy projects. She also held a wide range of roles in the energy sector, spanning technical design roles, community engagement, and advocacy.

Emma has a Bachelor of Arts in Arts and Science, and is currently completing a Bachelor in Engineering Science.
