David Blowers

David Blowers is Energy Fellow at the Grattan Institute.

David has extensive experience developing both energy and broader public policy in both Australia and the UK. He has spent the past three years working on energy and earth resources policy for the Victorian State Government, where he recently led the review of the Victorian Energy Efficiency Target scheme.

David has a Bachelor degree in Economics (Hons) from the University of Hull and a Masters degree in Economics of the European Union from the University of Exeter.

Despite recent activity surrounding emissions reductions, the Renewable Energy Target and the future of coal, energy policy has created strikingly little debate in the campaign, writes David Blowers.
