I’m a freelance reporter and columnist specialising in climate and energy, covering both markets and policy. I write for a variety of outlets ranging from online news services to monthly magazines, and my articles range from five lines of breaking news to features of 2,000 words or more discussing big issues affecting the energy world.
My assignments take me from within the UN climate negotiations to energy industry conferences and seminars, as well as set-piece press events. I’ve covered the UN climate talks for 15 years, following the annual COP meetings from Montreal to Copenhagen, Paris and Madrid. I’ve also covered carbon markets – both the day-to-day trading and the regulatory processes – in Brussels, Sacramento, Boston and Bonn.
I’ve written about the expansion of renewable energy around the world, the steady growth of electric vehicles, how these trends are affecting fossil fuels, and what’s likely to happen many years into the future. At the moment I'm also writing a lot about the emergence of net zero commitments among corporates and the implications for the compliance and voluntary carbon markets.
My work also extends to drafting white papers, writing in-depth research and carrying out policy analysis, as well as press releases and marketing materials.
