I’m delighted to share that renowned climate and clean energy policy expert Zoë Caron has joined our team as a senior policy advisor focusing on Alberta.

For the past six years, Caron has worked with WWF in a variety of capacities in Canada and Scandinavia. She’s advocated for domestic and global climate leadership and for renewable-energy investment with both WWF-Canada, and as part of the organization’s Global Climate and Energy Initiative, on the leadership team of an international campaign successfully influencing large-scale energy- finance shifts.

Previously, she coordinated third-party public renewable-energy consultations for the Government of Nova Scotia, contributing to the development of that province’s community feed-in tariff.

Caron is also a past president of the Sierra Club of Canada, chairing the organization’s national board of directors. She’s the co-author of Global Warming for Dummies, and a recipient of Elle magazine’s Gold Awards for women in energy. She even had a cameo in Vanity Fair, alongside colleagues of the Canada-U.S. youth-led Energy Action Coalition.

Caron will be based in Edmonton. There, she will collaborate with Alberta’s provincial, civil society, business, and academic leaders and work to strengthen and accelerate the province’s shift to renewable power. We are thrilled to have her on the Clean Energy Canada team, and on the ground in Alberta—the next frontier of Canada’s energy transition.
