New Advisory Board Member Dan Cass

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Dan Cass to the Advisory Board of Solar Head of State.

Dan is an Australian social entrepreneur with more than twenty years experience across climate and clean energy issues. He is Strategist at Australia’s leading progressive think-tank, the Australia Institute and an honorary associate at Sydney Business School. He was a director of Hepburn Wind, Australia’s highly awarded community-owned wind farm. As an independent lobbyist and consultant he has worked with international and Australian energy companies.

As an advisor to Solar Head of State, Dan is guiding the development of our public affairs strategy, to help us reach out effectively to governments, media, the energy industry, NGOs and supporters.

Dan was there at the origin of the whole Solar Head of State project, when Sungevity and 350.org partnered with LG, Kaco and the President of the Maldives, Mohamad Nasheed to solarise the Presidential residence in 2010. He wrote the communications plan for the global media and delivered it on the ground in Male, the capital of the Maldives.


We are looking forward to drawing on Dan’s experience and helping to spread the benefits of solar energy.
