Ariel Liebman, Ph.D.
Faculty of Information
Technology, Monash University
Director, Monash Energy Institute
Director, Monash Grid Innovation Hub
|Ariel is Director of the Monash Energy
Institute and also leads the university’s Smart Energy System’s
research program. Additionally, a Director of the Monash Grid
Innovation Hub, Ariel leads Monash's electricity grid related
Digital Energy initiatives. He brings together researchers from
across disciplines such as AI and Electrical Engineering.
Ariel is an energy specialist with more than 20 years’ experience,
including NEM price forecasting, investment planning, electricity
network monopoly regulation, and energy portfolio risk management.
Ariel is co-architect of the Microgrid/Net Zero Initiative and
lead researcher in the $3 mil ARENA funded Smart Energy City. The
Clayton campus infrastructure includes 2MW of solar panels, 20
buildings, electric vehicle charging stations and redT 1MWh
Ariel’s research is cross-disciplinary including
applications of machine learning data analytics to develop
distributed energy market platforms, the integration of new
optimisation techniques with grid operation and planning methods.
This results in faster decision support tools for operation and
planning of energy systems at distribution and transmission level.
In the energy transition this is becoming critical if we are to
manage the explosive complexity in operation and planning of both
the distribution and transmission grid and new low carbon
continent-wide power systems.
Ariel led the Australia
Indonesia Centre Energy Cluster and recently led a project in
collaboration with Indonesian and European NGO’s showing that a
shift to renewables can cost Indonesia no more than their current
coal based plans while reaching 50% renewables by 2030.
holds a PhD in Quantum Physics from the University of Queensland.
