Hydro Tasmania CEO, Evangalista Albertini, has stepped down from the role for personal reasons.
Mr Albertini has made a very significant contribution to Hydro Tasmania over the course of his career, most recently as CEO and prior to that as Chief Asset Manager and Investment Officer and Chief Operations Officer.
Hydro Tasmania Chairman, Grant Every-Burns, said, “Mr Albertini has been a passionate advocate for Tasmania and the role Hydro Tasmania plays in the Tasmanian community and economy.”
Among his many achievements, Mr Albertini was instrumental in developing a risk-based approach to capital investment in Hydro Tasmania’s significant asset base and he played a central role in the state’s response to the energy supply challenge of 2016.
Hydro Tasmania has recently undergone a transformation to ensure the business is positioned strongly to succeed in a rapidly changing National Electricity Market.
Mr Every-Burns said, “Hydro Tasmania’s future is extremely bright, with inherent advantages in its existing clean energy sources and the ability to respond to market changes through its visionary Battery of the Nation projects.
“The business continues to support the Tasmanian Government’s renewable energy and hydrogen vision for the state.”
Ian Brooksbank, Executive General Manager Finance and Strategy, will act as CEO on an interim basis.
