I am deeply committed to addressing the climate crisis and achieving a zero carbon society. The efficient electrification of transportation, buildings, and industry, combined with the rapid shift to zero carbon electricity, is our most important opportunity to eliminate emissions, improve health, and increase the financial performance of our assets and communities.
As a policy-maker and planner, I feel proud to have contributed to some of the most progressive energy policies in North America. Notably, while at the City of Richmond, BC, I led the development of the world’s first requirement that all residential parking spaces be “EV Ready.” This policy has proved critical to enabling EV adoption and is spreading rapidly to other communities. That project is also special to me, as it was my first collaboration with AES.
I am thrilled to now be part of the AES team, and to lead efforts to support electric transportation and zero carbon buildings. AES’ engineers have unparalleled expertise in the design of EV charging systems, efficient electrical systems, and solar systems. I approach each day as an opportunity to learn from my colleagues, and to help foster a more green, just, and beautiful built environment.
