Megan Farrelly

Megan Farrelly is an Associate Professor of Human Geography, specialising in environmental studies that seek to understand how spatial dimensions and institutional structures and processes influence pathways for delivering more sustainable urban and rural environments. Megan’s expertise relates to unpacking how technical and governance innovations within urban water and energy sectors, can be ‘mainstreamed’ to deliver better climate outcomes.

Her recent work has involved exploring how we can better integrate distributed energy resources (i.e. solar photovoltaics and batter storage) into conventional grid infrastructure, as well as exploring contemporary challenges to adopting alternative stormwater technologies and practices. Megan has published her research in leading academic journals - Global Environmental ChangeEnvironmental Science and Policy and Journal of Cleaner Production, and regularly consults for and provides advice to Government agencies (e.g. Water Utilities, EPA and Department of Environment, Water, Land and Planning).
