Holding a chartered accountant degree, Miller comes with over 25 years of experience across renewable energy, electricity retail, among other sectors. Till recently he worked as the CEO of Mojo Power that he co-founded in 2015. He also served as Director of Asset Finance at Sungevity Australia. Miller co-founded a technology and services company, Sumwise, which he ran as its CEO.
“Miller is a respected leader in the renewable energy and electricity sector with experience working with innovative technology companies, startups and in investment advisory roles so is ideally placed to lead ARENA as we support Australia’s energy transition,” said ARENA Chair, Martijn Wilder.
