GREENHOUSE GAS AND ENERGY MEASUREMENT AND REPORTING
I offer expertise in technical and non-technical measurement and reporting under NGERS, GHG Protocol and other schemes. This includes higher order methods combustion emissions estimation, fugitive and chemical emissions, and emissions uncertainty estimation (under NGERS and the GHG Protocol)
I can assist with your EERS data entry and manage your overall NGER reporting system as required.
I can also undertake life cycle assessment studies for carbon neutral claims or Scope 3 emissions estimation.
Many organisations do not require a technical specialist on their staff but nevertheless have a need for such expertise from time to time.
I am available at short notice for piecemeal or contract work for a range of sectors including:
Energy or resources businesses
Manufacturing or process industries
Oil, gas, chemicals and electricity sectors
CARBON AND ENERGY ASSURANCE AND VERIFICATION
As a Registered Greenhouse and Energy Auditor (Category 1, Technical) I offer my expertise to assurance practices undertaking voluntary or statutory assurance engagements under carbon and energy schemes (e.g. NGERS, ERF).
I can provide your audit team with technical and engineering expertise as well as experience in carbon and energy audits.
I have many years of experience as an audit team leader and technical lead consultant on complex audits for sectors such as electricity generation, transport, coal mining, chemicals and natural gas transmission.
I am an experienced project manager for consulting engagements (from initial client prospect, proposal, and execution through to delivery) and for process engineering projects.
PROCESS DESIGN, SIMULATION AND MODELLING
I have many years of process design experience, including design engineering for WorleyParsons, ExxonMobil and Qenos. I am also an experienced process simulation expert (packages including ASPEN, HYSIS and PRO/II) and undertook a PhD modelling complex dynamic processes using my own computer code.
ENERGY EFFICIENCY & CARBON REDUCTION
I have a strong technical background in energy efficiency and emissions reduction projects, including design and operational efficiency of energy intensive plants, transport emissions reduction projects, cogeneration projects and identification and execution of energy efficiency opportunities in industrial plants.
I have also undertaken emissions reduction projects such as fuel switching, boiler and furnace improvements and carbon capture and storage.
SUSTAINABILITY CONSULTING AND REPORTING
I am able to bring an experienced scientific and technical perspective to your sustainability reports and projects. I have experience with Global Reporting Initiative reporting, triple bottom line reporting, valuation of externalities and advice on measurement and assurance of sustainability metrics.
EDUCATION AND TRAINING
I was lecturer and unit coordinator at Monash University from 2011 to 2017, teaching the Chemical Engineering unit Sustainable Processing I. I have also been unit coordinator for the University of Melbourne Chemical Engineering final year Design Project. I am an experienced presenter and trainer and can help you develop and deliver technical or engineering training materials and presentations.
TECHNICAL WRITING AND DIAGRAMS
I am an experienced technical writer with many years of experience in writing such documents as operating procedures, technical guidelines, scientific and engineering reports and consulting reports.
I bring this experience to writing projects, ensuring technical rigour and clarity of language.
I can also assist with scientific or engineering diagrams, charts drawings and other visual communication of technical concepts.
