The Australian Energy Market Commission wishes Audrey Zibelman well in her new role after nearly four years leading the Australian Energy Market Operator.

Acting Chair of the Commission, Merryn York, congratulated Ms Zibelman on her significant contribution to the transforming power system with high penetration of renewable generation.

“Australia’s energy market is leading the world as it connects high levels of wind and solar power. In the short time she has worked with us, Audrey’s contribution to managing that technology revolution has been large," Ms York said.

“Her stewardship of AEMO during this period has been visionary.

“She will be missed both as a colleague and as a member of the Energy Security Board, which she has done so much to help establish as a force for change.

“On behalf of the AEMC Commissioners and staff I would like to thank her for her drive and commitment.”
