With over 10 years of experience, Peter uses his wealth of energy and climate change experience to support natural gas and electric utilities with strategic planning related to decarbonization and climate policy. He brings a valuable combination of technical, financial, and industry expertise to help companies build plans and set targets for a lower-carbon future.
Peter developed a business plan for Washington Gas to leverage distribution infrastructure and meet aggressive net-zero climate policy targets. He also led a project for the Canadian Gas Association showcasing the impacts of widespread electrification on the residential, commercial, industrial, transportation, and power generation sectors. This project highlights a lower-cost pathway to emissions reductions through greater integration of the gas and power sectors.
Peter works alongside gas utilities and investors to develop electrification and decarbonization scenarios, assess their impact on energy demand, and model potential effects and business risks to utilities. He also partners with these companies to evaluate their greenhouse gas emissions, understand emission reduction options, and build roadmaps to achieve targeted reductions.
