The API are supporting the industry professionals wanting to inspire the next generation of the Australian power sector workforce.

The power industry is facing a significant challenge in attracting the next generation of talent that is needed to manage our future power systems. Due to the lack of understanding, awareness and visibility of the amazing work happening in this sector. The API was created for this purpose, and we’ve been working for years with our member organisations, partners and undergraduate students to inspire the next generation.

But we want to achieve more, and we invite you to join us!

Who can become a POWER AMBASSADOR?

Professionals and undergraduates are the best ambassadors for our industry. You can help students understand the importance of the industry and the role it plays in our daily lives. We want you to share your experiences, inspire them with success stories, and explain the real-world problems that our industry is facing and the solutions we are developing.


We are looking for power professionals to inspire school kids and start their understanding of potential careers in the power industry, we want to encourage you and your colleagues to go into schools and share your passion for our field with the next generation. By doing so, we can help shape the future of the industry by encouraging students of all abilities to become part of it.
