What I’m doing

Dan Cass discussing demand response rule change proposal on Sky News

In November 2015 I joined The Australia Institute, where I am Energy Policy & Regulatory Lead. I have published a papers on a range of issues and am the co-author of a rule change currently before the Australian Energy Market Commission (to create a ‘wholesale demand response’ market).

I am also an honorary associate at the University of Sydney Business School, affiliated with the Sydney Environment Institute and a mentor at EnergyLab.

I am a lobbyist, listed on the Australian Government Register of Lobbyists.

I am currently on the board of Solar Head of State, which installs solar systems on executive residences, to encourage national leaders to demonstrate clean energy leadership.

I am the company secretary of the Deborah Cass Prize for Writing, a national prize for early career writers who have with a migrant background, which was established in 2015 to commemorate Deborah, who was my sister. I am currently studying a Graduate Diploma in Energy and Resources Law at Melbourne Law School.

Sometimes I join the conversation about energy and other things on Twitter and you can find me on LinkedIn.
