Dr Martin Gill (PhD) has 15 years of experience in the utility space, covering communications systems, smart meters, power quality analysers, fault monitoring systems and customer interaction via home area networks and web portals.
Dr Gill served as the Business Requirements Work Stream Leader on Australia's National Smart Metering Program on the development of a functional specification for future smart meter rollouts throughout Australia.
In another role Martin and his team developed the first Smart Metering systems to be deployed to Australian customers. These systems used an In Home Display and web portal to provide customers instantaneous feedback of their energy consumption. The team was externally recognised with the Green Globe Award, Premier's Award, Banksia Award and AEEMA Best New Product.
Dr Gill has also worked with utilities to prepare their Smart Grid roadmaps and undertaken detailed financial modelling of the costs and benefits of Smart Grid rollouts.
Prior to moving into the utility space Martin worked for the Australian Defence Department specialising in wireless communications. At the Rockwell Science Center in Los Angeles California he joined the team developing wireless sensors to replace mine fields.
Martin's Doctoral thesis examined the design of communications modems. His master's degree was in Military Systems Engineering undertaken in the UK. He has also completed a Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical and Electronic) and a Bachelor of Science (Applied Maths and Computing) at the University of Adelaide. He completed a Graduate Diploma in Electronic Systems Engineering at the University of South Australia.
Martin resides near Bondi Beach, Sydney Australia with his fiance and his two dogs. He lap swims and (attempts) to play tennis.
