2022 Industry Contribution Award winner congratulated
Energy industry veteran Laurie Curro from Western Australia’s Horizon Power has won Energy Networks Australia’s 2022 Industry Contribution Award.
Laurie was recognised for his contribution and commitment to the energy industry, in particular power transmission and distribution in WA over the past 30 years.
Energy Networks Australia CEO, Andrew Dillon said Laurie was well recognised as an industry leader in operational and control centre management.
“Laurie was a member of ENA’s Asset Management Committee for many years and has made a significant contribution to smart grids development, standards, distributed generation, network management, safety and asset management.” he said.
“Laurie’s passion and industry leadership extends to promotion of STEM and young engineer development through collaborations with academia, Engineers Australia, the Electric Energy Society and the Western Australian community more broadly.
“His retirement this year represents a major loss to the sector. It is a most appropriate recognition of his many years’ service for him to be the 2022 Industry Contribution Award winner.” he said.
Mr Curro was acknowledged at the Energy Networks Australia Annual Dinner along with the Industry Innovation Award and the Industry Consumer Engagement Award.
