Amandine Denis is head of research at ClimateWorks Australia. She was a key analyst on the Low Carbon Growth Plan for Australia, and authored the Cost of Delay report which quantified forecast financial losses from delaying implementation of the Low Carbon Growth Plan activities.
She also led the research for the Impact of the Carbon Price Package, which developed a methodology to assess the uptake of the policies included in the Australian Government’s Clean Energy Future package and the Industrial Energy Efficiency Data Analysis project, which developed a detailed knowledge base on the energy use, energy savings potential and factors impeding implementation for Australia’s industrial companies.
Most recently, she led the research on the Tracking Progress project, which was the first national stocktake of Australia’s progress towards a low carbon economy (providing an assessment of abatement activity occurring across the Australian economy).
Prior to joining ClimateWorks, Amandine worked as a management consultant for McKinsey and Company in Sydney, advising clients in both the public and private sector on a wide range of matters including strategy, sustainability issues and carbon abatement opportunities and associated policies.
Amandine holds an MBA, as well as a MSc. from Ecole Polytechnique (France) and a MSc. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (M.I.T.).
