Leading smart energy retailer welcomes new General Manager

  • Written by NewsServices.com

Discover Energy, Australia’s leading smart energy retailer, has announced the new appointment of Chris Cormack as their Executive General Manager - Strategy, Growth and Future Energy. This comes as Discover Energy continues to experience a meteoric rise - seeing the month-on-month growth average at 23% and year-on-year growth at 539% since its conception in 2018. 

 

Having lived and breathed energy for nearly 20 years in senior positions with companies such as AGL Energy, Australian Energy Market Operator and various start-up organisations, Chris will be responsible for the strategic direction and leading the delivery and growth of Discover Energy. 

 

“After witnessing the development of Discover Energy these past few years, I look forward to having the opportunity to further foster the business and support its vision of becoming a sustainably focused, software-driven company. Solar and batteries continue to be recognised as the future of energy and I can’t wait to support our customers and partners on their journey,” said Chris Cormack, Executive General Manager - Strategy, Growth and Future Energy. 

 

Chris has made a name for himself as an industry innovator having been at the forefront of the energy transition. Having led industry projects such as Open Energy Networks and the Energy Security Board’s Post-2025 DER (Distributed Energy Resources) Implementation plan, Chris will be able to provide Discover Energy with a strong foundation to continually adapt to the changing retail energy landscape in Australia.


“I'm extremely pleased with our success to date and believe now is the perfect time to introduce Chris to the business to take it to the next level. With his vast experience in energy, he will propel Discover Energy forward and maintain its position as a pioneering energy retailer,” said Anson Zhang, CEO of Discover Energy.


New research commissioned by Discover Energy revealed that the majority (82%) of Aussies agree that renewable energy is the key to a greener future. What’s more, 67% of Aussies are planning on switching to solar energy, which is why there’s never been a more important time to recruit someone with Chris’ experience to Discover Energy. 

 

“I’m impressed with how far Discover Energy has come in such a short time and am really excited for the challenge of helping to change the face of energy retailing with Discover Energy over the next few years,” said Chris.


Discover Energy is an innovative, Australian-owned energy retailer with a focus on localised solar-produced energy stored in batteries trading with the electricity grid via a Virtual Power Plant (VPP). Discover Energy recently won two awards in the 2021 Mozo Experts Choice Awards for Solar Friendly Electricity for New South Wales and South Australia which compared 842 energy plans from 47 Australian energy providers. Generating cheaper, smarter and greener power, Discover Energy is dedicated to saving you money whilst reducing your carbon footprint.
