Australis is an offshore windfarm developer / origination company, with significant project delivery experience in the UK. The company is focused on opportunities offshore Australia where three projects are being pursued in Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia.
Australis is led by Chairman Mark Petterson who played major roles in the liberalisation of the UK energy markets before becoming a pioneer in the offshore wind in the UK sector. At Warwick Energy he led the development of three successful offshore wind projects, totalling around 10% (800MW) of the UK’s capacity, including the Thanet project, the world’s largest offshore windfarm when it was commissioned in 2010.

Managing Director, Andrew Hindle’s experience includes managing companies, coordinating Environmental Impact Assessments, and securing planning permissions for two large energy storage projects. These projects involved liaison with multiple stakeholders and securing onshore and offshore landholder agreements and easements for multiple onshore sites and connecting infrastructure.

Dave has had direct experience of managing projects offshore in Australia and brings a strong network of business and regulatory partners. Dave holds dual UK/Australian citizenship.
