Gabrielle Henry, Director, Industry Engagement and Development at the Victorian Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning
In her role in the Victorian State Government, Gabrielle works with the energy industry to help develop a sustainable energy future. With tertiary qualifications in engineering, finance and humanities, Gabrielle has over 25 years’ experience across technical, commercial, financial, IT, policy and regulatory aspects of sustainable energy in the public and private sector in Australia and internationally. She currently oversees a team that works with sector participants to attract and establish new energy businesses into Victoria, develop new energy sector capabilities, support emerging energy technologies from concept to project and help industries manage the transition to a clean energy future. Hydrogen has played an increasing role under her remit, with the release last year of the Victorian Government’s Renewable Hydrogen Industry Development Plan laying the foundation for sector development in the State.
