Brief Summary

Jemma works in the field of disruptive innovation, artificial intelligence, internet of things and blockchain.



Jemma Green was born in Perth and raised in the eastern hills.

She received a bachelor of Commerce in Finance at Murdoch University in Perth, before beginning work as an investment banker at J.P. Morgan’s London office in the early 2000’s.

Around this time, banks were realising the need for a greater focus on corporate social responsibility in business and began recruiting young professionals with fresh minds to assist with the transition.

Jemma was chosen to help setup J.P. Morgan’s Global Environmental and Social Risk Management office.

It was during her work here that she began to realise the full potential for increasing ethics and responsibility in corporate organizations.

During this time, she completed two postgraduate diplomas and a Masters in Sustainability at Cambridge University. Her research centred around corporate credit ratings and environmental risk.

In 2013, Jemma left J.P. Morgan and returned to Australia to undertake a PhD in disruptive innovation, which she completed in 2017. Her doctoral research is focused the notion of Citizen Utilities and solar and battery system design in apartment buildings and the blockchain, as well as modular construction. From her doctoral research she saw the opportunity for the blockchain to enable the democratization of energy markets and formed Power Ledger, a blockchain and technology company operating in energy markets.

Jemma is cofounder and chair of Power Ledger, an independent councillor at the City of Perth, a board member of Heritage Perth and Carbon Tracker.

Jemma has made over 400 appearances as a commentator on transport, energy, housing and finance.
