Proa Analytics was founded in 2016 by Matthew Jeppesen and Victor Depoorter.
Matthew Jeppesen (Managing Director) has worked as a Research Fellow in Engineering at the University of Melbourne, on an ARENA-funded study of least cost carbon abatement in electricity, and on rooftop PV modelling with the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO). He obtained a PhD in physics at the Australian National University (ANU), and has also worked on gas market analysis and on the 100% renewables modelling project at AEMO, and on energy efficiency at Ergon Energy.
Victor Depoorter (Technical Director) is working on a PhD at the University of Melbourne developing new techniques for solar modelling and forecasting, including work on rooftop PV modelling with AEMO. He completed his Engineering degree at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya in Spain, which included a secondment to the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne in Switzerland. Victor also worked for the European Union funded research project RenewIT on the energy efficiency of data centres.
