Jacob brings extensive experience in data processing automation, modelling, and process improvement, and has detailed compliance expertise from past experience in the inspections team. In this role he was instrumental in the automation of reporting processes and database tools used by the Inspection team to improve efficiency, consistency, and reliability. As a graduate engineer he supports the Engineering Team in a variety of projects. This includes electricity network modelling for ITP’s solar farm developments, where he has developed scripts and processes to improve the accuracy and speed of the modelling process.
Jacob has a Bachelor of Engineering (Renewable Energy Systems) and Bachelor of Science (Physics) from the Australian National University. His honours thesis examined the effect of EV ‘vehicle to home’ operation on local distribution network loading and how the application of different tariff policies mitigate this effect.
