Tom is an energy policy specialist. He leads BCSEA’s interventions before the BC Utilities Commission, where the energy plans of BC Hydro, Fortis and other BC utilities are publicly reviewed. Successes include the defeat of BC Hydro’s proposed gas-fired power plant at Duke Point (Nanaimo) and the 2000 policy of meeting most of BC Hydro’s new load with gas-fired generation. Tom is especially interested in finding what will best stimulate society and government to make the big changes that will minimize climate change and put us all on the road to sustainability. Tom co-founded BCSEA in 2003. He has degrees in science and architecture.
