Pollution Probe is pleased to announce the appointment of Richard Carlson as Director, Energy Policy and Energy Exchange at Pollution Probe.

Before joining Pollution Probe, Richard was the senior energy policy associate at the Mowat Centre, at the University of Toronto. He has written and spoken on a diverse number of energy issues, including electricity and natural gas planning and regulation in Ontario, as well as oil, gas and pipeline development in Canada.
Prior to his work with the Mowat Centre, Richard worked internationally, advising investors and governments on energy and environmental policies and investments. He has also published widely academically and non-academically on energy politics and policies in Europe, Turkey and Central Asia, and is co-editor of a book on social and political developments in post-independence Central Asia. Richard is on the board of the Transition énergétique Québec, the Quebec government’s energy transition agency.

Pollution Probe is thrilled to welcome Richard to our team, and we look forward to working with Richard to further advance our work on energy literacy and energy policy for a more sustainable Canada.
