Guest Speaker: Kate Coates, General Manager - AGL Macquarie 

Topic: Future for Liddell and Bayswater power stations, and the electricity industry in the Hunter Valley.

AGL has announced they are decarbonising their electricity generation portfolio. In the Hunter this means Liddell power station will retire in 2022, and Bayswater power station in 2035.

What does this mean for our region?

Kate Coates, General Manager of AGL Macquarie, will address these issues and more, as the guest speaker at the next Hunter Business Mining luncheon.

Ms Coates began her career in 1981 as an apprentice electrical fitter in the NSW Electricity Commission’s high voltage transmission division.

After completing her apprenticeship and an engineering advanced diploma, Ms Coates worked as an automation and control technician in NSW thermal power stations until 1993, when she won a Pacific Power scholarship to study an engineering degree.

Ms Coates held positions as senior engineer, Maintenance Manager and Asset Manager with Eraring Energy, before moving into renewable generation as Eraring Energy’s Executive Manager Hydro & Wind, and as Head of Hydro with AGL in Victoria’s High Country. Ms Coates has completed an MBA, and is now General Manager of AGL Macquarie, Liddell and Bayswater power stations in the Hunter Valley.

Book early to join us at an informative lunch covering important issues relevant to the mining sector.
