Merlin Douglas-Johnson, Development Director (Australia)

Merlin has played a pivotal role in the growth of BSR Australia – from our days working from a shipping container in Somerset, to realising solar farms in the remote and challenging Australian outback. His role today sees him identifying, pursuing, and realising business opportunities for BSR in Australia. He’s passionate about developing quality and enduring renewable projects, in a way that cares for the communities around them, while maximising benefits for all stakeholders.


“The global population has experienced extraordinary growth in the last 100 years and will continue to do so in the coming decades. This growing population will require energy, which must be clean to slow the effects of climate change. Solar is poised do a lot of the heavy lifting in the renewable energy mix. This is due to its speed of deployment, low LCOE, and emission free generation during its operational life.”
