His specific area of expertise is in resource efficiency and industrial decarbonisation, with a particular focus on bridging the communication gaps between public and private sector stakeholders.

What makes you care about the Covenant of Companies and reducing energy usage?

Working directly with companies will help us learn how to develop business cases for decarbonisation that are tailored to the specific needs of company by type, size, location, etc. The CCCE is a way to build an interactive relationship with industry (meaning in particular company themselves) that will inform the creation of effective incentives and ultimately regulation that companies feel a part of.

What can the private sector do to speed up our energy transition to net-zero?

Collaborate more together through industry networks (like the classic EE networks) and focus much more strongly on supply chain initiatives so that the incentives, cost sharing and additional effort to deliver a carbon neutral end product/service are shared equally amongst all actors involved in its development and delivery.
