Welcome from MEI Director Michael Brear

On Thursday 1st September, I commenced as Director of the Melbourne Energy Institute. This is indeed an honour.

I first take this opportunity to thank Professor Mike Sandiford for his leadership, and for his continuing assistance. Mike leaves big shoes to fill.

This period of transition will be a mix of the familiar and of the new. Our public lecture series will continue; the need for open and rigorous debate on energy remains acute. As an engineer, it is also no surprise that I will emphasise the importance of technology and industry.

I look forward to working with the community as MEI Director, and we welcome any suggestions on new directions that the MEI might take.

All the best,

Michael Brear
