In Conversation: Engineers without Borders Australia
supported by City of Sydney
Engineers Without Borders returns to us in 2015 to share stories of the incredible work being undertaken across the globe by some of Australia’s brightest engineers. Engineers without Borders Australia are the official Charity Partner of Sydney New Years’ Eve 2014.
Phil Hamer is helping educate future generations in Cambodia about renewable energy. As an Engineering Without Borders volunteer in 2003, Phil worked closely with the Royal University of Phnom Penh to develop a Renewable Energy Course; his work included mentoring Khmer students as well as preparing course materials. Phil is currently completing his PhD in Photovoltaics at the University of New South Wales.
Alexie Seller is changing the way we think about energy and its accessibility. In 2011, Alexie led an 8-person Engineer Without Borders energy audit team for a local community partner developing tailored recommendations plan, government grants and ensuring energy efficiency recommendations were installed with minimum upfront cost. Alexie is currently the National Manager for Pollinate Energy, a not-for-profit social enterprise which, through microfinance and distribution networks, provides access to affordable and clean energy technology that improves the livelihood of poor people living in India’s urban slums.
