Josh has worked on large-scale renewable energy projects in Australia and throughout the Pacific for over 8 years. He specialises in photovoltaic, solar thermal, battery storage, and diesel generator technologies, cost structures, projects, and integration. He is an experienced analyst having built numerous techno-economic models and authored formal reports including national energy investment plans, energy market reports, and project feasibility studies. As an engineer he has worked across the entire project development spectrum; from concept design during pre-feasibility, through detailed design for tendering, to independent acceptance testing during system commissioning. Many of these projects have paired battery storage with variable renewable generation to allow for high renewable energy contributions to predominately diesel-powered networks in remote areas. Josh has also worked with university research departments in both Australia and the United States, developing solar thermochemical storage technologies. He has delivered training courses in PV and mini-grid modelling, and written Masters-level courses in renewable energy and mini-grid design for universities in Australia and abroad.
Josh has a Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) and Bachelor of Science (Physics) from the Australian National University. He is currently undertaking a Masters of Environmental and Resource Economics at the Australian National University.
