Giles Parkinson
2017 Deni Geene Award

Giles Parkinson is founder and editor of RenewEconomy, the leading Australian website on renewable energy and climate policy in Australia.

Since its launch in 2012, RenewEconomy.com.au has become the go-to resource for news, analysis and perspective on developments in wind, solar, storage and other technologies, and the policies that drive it, or impede it.
The website has a daily newsletter subscriber list of 15,000 people – but also attracts a much broader readership, with an average of some 250,000 unique visitors a month.
Giles also publishes One Step Off The Grid, a website focusing on the uptake of renewables and storage at household, business and community level, and on micro-grids.
Giles has spent his entire career as a journalist, and after starting out as a part-time cricket correspondent for the Weekend News in Perth, fell quickly into business journalism.
He was business editor and a deputy editor of the Australian Financial Review from 1995 to 2004, and set up the paper’s first website in 2000.
Giles went freelance in 2004, writing for a range of business publications before starting to focus on climate and clean energy, firstly for The Bulletin magazine, then a weekly column for The Australian newspaper (he jokes he was the paper’s voluntary carbon offset for two years) and then for Business Spectator.
He created, and was the founding editor of, Climate Spectator in 2010 before deciding to set up his own business, RenewEconomy, in 2012.
Giles has attended many of the international climate change conferences, from Bali through Copenhagen, Cancun, Doha, Warsaw, Lima and finally to Paris, and has attended many international renewable energy conferences.
Giles won the Citibank award for business journalism in 2007, and the Clean Energy Council Media Award in 2012. He led the afr.com team that was also a Walkley Award Finalist.
RenewEconomy now supports a team of four part-time contributors, has created two popular weekly podcasts (Energy Insiders and Solar Insiders) and is involved in conferences focusing on renewables and the energy transition.
He lives in the northern Rivers region of NSW and tries to get a surf in every day. He has already torn his hair out over the dispiriting politics of climate and energy in Australia, but is very confident that technology - and consumers - will win out in the end. He dreams of finally owning an electric vehicle, which he will power from his rooftop solar array.
