Energy Futures Lab Fellow

Candice Paton

Director, Regulatory Affairs & External Relations
Enhance Energy Inc.

Candice is the Director for Regulatory Affairs & External Relations at Enhance Energy, an  Alberta-based carbon management company currently sequestering 1.5 million tonnes of CO2 each year in Alberta’s geology permanently. She brings over 15 years of experience in technology development and innovation in energy systems.

Candice is passionate about energy technologies, environmental performance and impact in communities. She holds a B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering and a M.Sc. in Chemical Engineering. She is registered as a Professional Engineer with APEGA and is a Fellow with the Energy Futures Lab. She has been recognized as a leading female innovator as part of the Alberta Chapter of SHEInnovates and as an energy industry influencer in the Young Women in Energy 2020 awards.

She is a recognized thought leader in her community, volunteering with Cybermentor and the Technical Committee for the Global Energy Show. She developed and co-hosts a podcast, For the Sake of Argument, exploring skills to help navigate critical conversations. Her family feels at home in Edmonton and Calgary and spends as much of their free time as possible exploring mountains by foot, by ski or by snowboard.

I am excited to see CCUS as a technology that lands in Alberta and Canada in a big way, but the opportunity to shape how this is done in a collaborative, inclusive and transparent way is something that the Lab has a big opportunity to influence.
