Siegfried Angerer

Mr. Angerer has a multi-disciplinary background with more than 20 years in corporate management, government advisory, international development, and executive consultancy. His extensive international background in Climate Solutions, Urban and Regional Development, Renewable Energy, WASH & Infrastructure Development, GIS, Mapping & Remote Sensing, IT Databases, Networking and Communications Services complement 20 years in tertiary education, education management and research. As a senior capacity building and workplace training consultant, Mr. Angerer has advised the government of India, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, the Philippines, Sri Lanka and others. Since 1990 Mr. Angerer has trained academics, teachers, architects, engineers, public servants, industry professionals and executives. He has taught at several Australian Universities, the National University of Malaysia (Harvard School of Business), the National University of South Korea and Vietnam and has held two visiting professorships. In his consulting capacity, Mr. Angerer worked with a US consortium of Universities to advice the US Congress on the cyber security vulnerabilities of the US electricity grid. He has also advised on Tertiary and Secondary education curriculum and TVET training and assessment standards. During the last 15 years Mr. Angerer has served as an independent senior energy analyst and adviser to business and several state and federal governments in Australian and SE Asia. He has provided capacity building and financial management advice to the Ministry of Finance (Marshall Islands) and other Indo-Pacific nations. He also worked with the Philippines energy regulator on disaster proofing grid strategies and several NGO’s on energy efficient sustainable cities and community energy solutions. These diverse projects range from net zero carbon social housing to sustainable agriculture and coastal resource management. They also include grid integration of waste to energy into a net zero carbon full circle localized zero waste economy. Two decades of research and field work underline Mr. Angerer’s community owned smart-grid (embedded micro-grid) model with a net zero carbon footprint under a net zero customer billing structure for both grid connected and off-grid installation. Based on theoretical work for a common risk management approach, the UN compliant Universal Development Matrix (UDM) emerged as the preferred model to address urban slum regeneration and poverty alleviation in remote rural areas of the Indo-Pacific and SE Asia. Designed as a common identifier project risk assessment approach, the UDM identifies structural, cultural, governance, infrastructure and knowledge management impediments in both developed and emerging nations in energy transition. The integrated (UDM) Energy, Water, Sanitation, Health and Education (E-WASH-E) systems planning and policy approach tackles multiple capacity building and infrastructure management issues in a financially responsible full circle economy. The matrix design encourage ecological footprint (EF) goal setting and managed net zero carbon transition pathways that promote an energy efficiency methodology for a data and knowledge management driven economy. Notable among these integrated anti-poverty projects is Mr, Angerer’s contribution to the Indian government renewable energy policy (MNRE) and the Sorsogon Smart Green City ( Philippines ) masterplan. Mr. Angerer holds a (M.U.R.PL) Masters in Urban & Regional Planning and International Development Law, ( M.ED) a Masters in Education, (Dip.
