Gavan McDonell

Professor Gavan McDonell has directed four public enquiries for state and federal governments, including the NSW commission recommending, as subsequently implemented, abandonment of planned power stations worth $12 billion, restructuring of the power industry and development of linked regional markets. He designed the economic principles for the NEM's Ancillary Services Markets, probably the world's first, and gave the National Electricity Tribunal decision which resulted in the rewriting of the ACCC's regulatory test of major network investment. With long international experience, including as a former senior investment banker supervising energy and transport investments in the Caucasus and Central Asia, he is currently advising on Asian energy markets research.
