Specifically, Sean works on the renewable ‘counter-offer’ to planned coal projects by highlighting the numerous benefits of the journey from coal to clean (not via gas). He predominantly works on regions with large coal pipelines – Sub-Saharan Africa, India and Southeast Asia – and supports the transition away from coal in these regions. 

Before joining E3G, Sean worked as a renewable energy journalist for a London-based publisher. His work focused on the global solar PV industry, from upstream industries concentrated in China through to downstream deployment of renewable projects throughout the world. His investigations have helped him build a strong understanding of the policy mechanisms that can support the shift to clean energy as well as the barriers and obstacles to greater renewable deployment.

Sean holds an MA in Geography and an MSc in Environment and Development from the University of Edinburgh. In his free time Sean enjoys walking, reading, cooking and sports.
