Steven Beletich is a consultant and clean energy advocate. His 30 year career as an energy professional includes work in conventional, renewable and nuclear power generation as well as electricity transmission planning. Steven has spent the past 20 years in a consulting role, where he has been at the forefront of a number of ground-breaking clean energy policies, such as the world’s-first phase out of incandescent light bulbs. In recent years he has lead several international initiatives related to the digitalisation of the energy system.

Key initiatives lead by Steven Beletich include:

IEA-4E Electronic Devices & Networks Annex

In 2014 Steven was appointed ‘Operating Agent’ for the IEA-4E Electronic Devices and Networks Annex. The Annex (‘EDNA’) is an initiative of the International Energy Agency’s 4E Technology Collaboration Programme. Under Steven’s guidance, EDNA develops energy policies for digital technologies such as the Internet of Things. Steven manages the annex and oversees all of its international research.

Connected Devices Alliance

Steven coordinates the G20 Networked Devices Task Group, as well as the international government/industry platform for policy development in this area – the ‘Connected Devices Alliance’ (CDA). The CDA is a network of more than 350 government and industry participants that have come together to work on the digital energy efficiency opportunities provided by networked devices.

Phase Out of Incandescent Light Bulbs

Steven is a key architect of the phase-out of incandescent lamps in Australia, which was a world-first project. The decision to eliminate this technology came at a time of highly charged political debate about effective ways to tackle climate change. The phase-out was a highly visible response, had measurable impact on emissions and came to pass with relative ease. It has now been emulated world-wide and Steven has worked with various economies including China, the European Union, the USA and various middle eastern countries, to help with the phase out of incandescent bulbs.
