What I Do

I write for a variety of outlets, ranging from online breaking-news services to monthly magazines.

My work ranges from hard news copy, with updates delivered as the story develops, adding detail and quotes as they come in, to articles of 2,000 words or more discussing big issues affecting the energy world.

I can report from within the UNFCCC climate negotiations, from conferences and seminars and from set-piece press events. I’ve written about the high-level UN negotiations for more than 10 years, following the annual COP meetings from Montreal to Copenhagen and Paris.

I cover carbon markets, both the day-to-day trading and the regulatory processes in Brussels, Sacramento, Boston and Bonn.

I write about the growth of renewable energy around the world, about electric vehicles, how these trends are affecting fossil fuels, and what’s likely to happen many years into the future.

I understand energy trading thoroughly, and can produce market commentaries on products ranging from API2 coal to propane. I’ve picked up technical analysis skills over the years, and I can talk to traders about short squeezes, stop-losses and carry trades.

I also write white papers and in-depth reports as well as marketing materials and carry out communications and outreach work for non-governmental organisations and voluntary groups.
