Championing diversity in the renewable energy sector

15 May, 2020 – Sydney, Australia: Nectr would like to congratulate Hannah Heath, Chief Strategy Officer, on being awarded the 2020 Women in Renewables Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD) scholarship.

The win marks a milestone step for Ms Heath, who has been an integral part of the Executive Leadership Team at Nectr since start-up.

It also offers an opportunity to accelerate her professional and on-the-job skills in delivering best practice corporate governance, while further supporting the evolution of a diverse workforce within the renewable energy space.

“Access to clean, affordable energy from renewable sources for all Australians is a passion point for me and the best way to ensure that transition is successful, is by ensuring contribution from professionals with diverse backgrounds and understanding of the sector,” said Hannah.

“Empowering, mentoring and supporting women to step out their comfort zones and take up the challenge in supporting Australia to become a world-leader in renewable technologies is exciting.”

Employing a mixture of experience and expertise from both within and outside the energy sector, the Nectr team is growing as the energy retailer expands its services.

“Hannah is an exceptional member of our team, providing years of experience in the electricity, gas and emerging markets sectors and is a deserving recipient of the scholarship,” said Andrew Butler, Managing Director, Nectr.

“At Nectr, we pride ourselves on operating differently. From our Entech attitude to providing digital first, exceptional service to our energy customers to our future plans of driving a sustainable, distributed energy solutions-focused future for Australians. It’s the expertise of our team that helps us achieve these goals every day.”

“Knowledge is a powerful asset and there is considerable technological change that can be made by advocating for the employment of diverse individuals that challenge the status quo, just as we pride ourselves on challenging the Australian energy sector,” continued Butler.

The scholarship includes access to the Australian Institute of Company Directors Foundations of Directorship Course and 12-month membership at AICD and mentoring by CEC Director Jenny Paradiso. Additionally, Ms Heath will be invited to present to the CEC Board next year on her experience.
