Staff Profile – Nicholas Rickard

Energy Advice Centre Coordinator

I have recently joined MEFL as the Energy Advice Centre Coordinator in the Zero Carbon Services team.

I lead the Energy Advice Centre (EAC) team to ensure that we are resourced to meet the needs of a number of MEFL programs and major projects.

The team provides energy advice and information to residents in Victoria and New South Wales through the Positive Charge and Our Energy Future programs.

Prior to MEFL, I worked at CERES Environment Park, supporting schools across Melbourne to embed sustainability in everything they do.

I am passionate about taking action on climate change and working in the not-for-profit sector.

When I’m not working, I’m usually… at Fitzroy Pool training with (and coaching) the masters swim squad.

I love… gardening and growing my own food. I have a huge veggie patch and also have three chickens providing me with fresh eggs every day.

The craziest thing I’ve done in the name of sustainability is… jumping on a kayak and joining a flotilla with the Pacific Climate Warriors in Newcastle (the world’s largest coal port) to stop coal exports for a day!
