Alistair McGrath-Kerr joined the smart energy council in August 2021 as Sales Manager. With a long held passion to support Australia’s transition to renewable energy, he is moving into this role excited about the possibilities to drive industry change. Alistair’s first experience with renewable energy was a toy solar powered car at age 7, and the switch was flicked – that excitement has driven him ever since. It led him to a Masters Degree in Engineering Management with a thesis in residential battery storage and a Design and Install Off Grid CEC Accreditation, as well as certificates in Passive House Building design. Before the Smart Energy Council, Alistair has worked for a variety of small to medium sized solar companies, energy efficient and passive house building consultants.
