Welcome to my website! I hope you find something insightful while you're here.
A little bit about me: I am a Senior Research Analyst in the Energy Transition practice at Wood Mackenzie, a global consultancy providing data analytics, market research, and advisory services across the energy sector. I lead the firm's coverage of off-grid power in emerging markets and downstream solar photovoltaics markets in Africa and the Middle East (though I've covered nearly every global solar market at one point or another!). I regularly publish research studies and thought leadership articles on trends in the energy transition and present my work at industry events around the world (and virtually, these days, of course!). My research and writing have recently been featured in such publications as Foreign Affairs, The Economist, FT, The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, IEEE Spectrum, Bloomberg, the World Economic Forum, and Greentech Media.
These days, I am particularly interested in driving the solar industry's thinking around new market development for off-grid energy access and competitive solar procurement policy implementation frameworks and utility business models in emerging economies.
I also conduct affiliated research as a Non-Resident Fellow at The Energy for Growth Hub, the Payne Institute at the Colorado School of Mines, , and the Foundation for Renewable Energy & Environment. I also direct Market Development and Strategy for Mee Panyar, a startup implementing a community-based operations and capacity-building model for mini-grids in rural Myanmar.
I previously worked in solar asset management and commercial operations at SunEdison and on clean energy transition-focused regulatory research for utilities and policymakers at the National Regulatory Research Institute.
I hold a Master of Energy & Environmental Policy and a B.S. in Economics and Energy & Environmental Policy from the Biden School of Public Policy and Administration at the University of Delaware. Slightly more often than not, I can be found in Boston with my amazing wife Rebecca (and new baby daughter Grace!).
