Chris Greacen has been involved in Renewable Energy since before he was born.  In his younger years, Chris was an editor at Home Power magazine, the world’s leading small scale renewable energy hands-on periodical.  At Home Power he was involved in the testing of the wide assortment of new products that were coming out, to determine which ones worked.  His strong interests in energy subjects of all types led him to a PhD from the Energy and Resources Group (ERG) at UC Berkeley.

Currently, and for the past 8 years, Chris has been working on the technology and policy aspects of renewable energy systems (from small scale up to the very large system scale), especially in Thailand and SE Asia. He is founder of Palang Thai, and a co-founder of  Border Green Energy Team (both Partner NGO's of SEPI) in Mae Sot, Thailand, and has been working with villagers there to build and maintain micro-hydroelectric and solar electric systems.
