Ian Brooksbank

Hydro Tasmania

Ian was appointed as Chief Executive Officer of Hydro Tasmania in July 2022 after acting in the role since September 2021. He joined the business as Chief Financial Officer in November 2019.

Ian began his career in the energy industry 20 years ago. He has worked across most of the energy supply chain in financial and operational leadership roles. Holding senior operational leadership roles for some of Australia’s largest generation assets has provided him with great exposure to the role electricity plays in supporting and growing our communities, businesses and industries.

Ian is passionate about the energy industry and the opportunity to make a difference, to be a part of Australia’s clean energy future. One of Ian’s key priorities is progressing Hydro Tasmania’s Battery of the Nation ambitions.

“Tasmania is on the cusp of an exciting future, powered by Battery of the Nation and Marinus Link, leveraging our natural advantages to grow our clean energy contribution and support Australia’s bold decarbonisation aspirations.

“I am very proud to be at the helm of Hydro Tasmania at such a pivotal time in our history and working towards realising these opportunities not just for us but for our state and Australia. It will bring enormous benefits flowing back in affordable power, much needed jobs, investment revenue and increased returns for the state to support vital infrastructure. ”
