Australian clean energy business Hydro Tasmania has announced the resignation of its CEO Evangelista Albertini.
Having been in the role with the company since September last year (2020), Albertini has supported the development of a risk-based approached to capital investment in the company’s asset base and played a centre role in the state’s response to the energy supply challenge of 2016.
Before accepting his CEO position, Albertini held Chief Asset Manager, Investment Office and Chief Operations Officer roles within the company.
Announcing his resignation today (September 6), Hydro Tasmania said the move was for personal reasons. On the news, Grant Every-Burns, Chairman of Hydro Tasmania, said, “Mr Albertini has been a passionate advocate for Tasmania and the role Hydro Tasmania plays in the Tasmanian community and economy.
“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 now act as CEO on an interim basis.
