Q. Why did you select to get into the renewable energy field?

My vision for the electricity sector, and inside my consulting practice, is to empower organizations and individuals to commercially capitalize on a clean-energy future.  Electricity markets are rapidly evolving, as technological advances of wind, solar, and storage projects are playing an increasingly vital role in Canada’s energy transition towards a net-zero grid and economy.

Q. How long have you ever been involved within the sector?

Throughout my 25-plus years of experience in electricity markets, I actually have worked within the areas of developing and investing in power generation, energy storage, transmission and distribution, mergers and acquisitions, market design, business strategy, policy development, and regulatory and litigation support.

Q. What gets you enthusiastic about renewable energy in Canada?

Wind, solar and energy-storage technologies are rapidly becoming increasingly competitive and cost-effective in comparison to all other resources. Due to this fact, these technologies are well positioned for continued growth across Canada. I’m enthusiastic about this direction, and about working with stakeholders to develop strategies and plans leading to actions and deliverables to deploy and develop wind, solar and storage projects.

Q. Why did you select to serve on the CanREA Board?

I need to proceed applying my experience and energy towards advancing wind, solar, and energy-storage technologies across Canada. I aim to help CanREA by sharing my experience, leadership, strategic insights, and technical knowledge of how electricity markets and regulatory regimes work, combined with helping to develop plans and methods to boost the event and integration of wind, solar and energy-storage projects across Canada.
