Chris spent 10 years in the Oil and Gas sector in various international stations in Asia, Middle East, and United States for Schlumberger before leaving to complete a MSc in Renewable Energy. Chris brings a passion for decarbonization and the opportunities in the Energy Transition. In his current role with Calgary Economic Development, he is the Business Development Manager for the Energy and Environment sector that includes Oil and Gas, Renewable Energy, Cleantech, Sustainability, and Electrification.

The Energy Transition, particularly on a net-zero pathway, may represent the single biggest economic opportunity in a generation and will be served by a pragmatic, holistic, and inclusive approach – one might say an orderly and just transition.
