2015 AIE Youth Scholarship Recipient

We are pleased to announce Megan Aspinall as the recipient of the 2015 AIE Youth Scholarship.

Megan is an Aerospace Engineer with 4 years’ experience in renewable energy consulting. Megan has worked as a Professional Engineer and Project Manager at AECOM in Melbourne, and is currently working as an Engineer at DNV GL in the UK. Megan has provided consulting services to investors, developers, utilities and government authorities in the solar PV and wind energy sectors. Her experience has focused on technical advisory, specialist feasibility studies, design services, owner’s engineering services, technical due diligence and industry market studies. Megan has global experience, working on renewable energy projects in Australia, South-East Asia, South Africa and the UK.

In addition, Megan also has a background in economics and business advisory, completing a Bachelor of Commerce (Economics) with vocational experience at Deloitte and AECOM Energy Advisory.

Megan has been awarded the AIE Youth Scholarship in 2015 to assist in completing a Masters of Renewable Energy Systems Technology (MSc) at Loughborough University in the UK. Megan will be completing a research thesis focusing on the use of renewable energy for rural electrification in developing communities, a topic which she is extremely passionate about. At the completion of her research, she aims to provide recommendations on the most effective approaches to deliver remote renewable energy projects and to map a pathway to achieving improved energy security in developing regions. Megan has had particular experience in designing sustainable energy solutions for remote indigenous Australian communities, an area which she intends to focus on and revisit in her career.

Megan is very grateful to receive the AIE scholarship and looks forward to her on-going involvement with the AIE and sharing her results with the AIE community.
