Graham Weale is an expert on Energy Transitions both in Europe and the USA. He has a deep understanding of their political, economic and technological dimensions explaining how end-goals can be achieved at the lowest cost to society.

Weale has the ability to highlight the difficult issues that politicians face and to explain the challenges of such transitions in a way which is illuminating. Between 2007-16 Weale was Chief Economist at RWE, Germany’s largest power generator, and helped navigate the company through the German Energiewende (the move out of nuclear power into renewables).

Before this Graham Weale was Director of European Services for IHS Globalinsight (now CERA), one of the world’s leading energy and economic consultancies. Whilst his most recent experience focused on Europe’s electricity system, at Globalinsight he covered gas and coal extensively and was frequently engaged as an Expert Witness at high-profile gas contract arbitrations. His oil experience was gained with ExxonMobil.

Graham Weale has first-hand experience of all of the major forms of energy. The combination of his technical and commercial background from Oxford University enables him to offer unique insights into the junction of these two disciplines. In the late 1980s he was credited as the first energy expert to highlight the potential of the Combined Cycle Gas plant as a major source of power generation in Europe. Weale has also worked as advisor to the European Commission and other European Governments. He is a member of the IEA Business Council and was appointed Honorary Professor of Energy Economics at the Ruhr University Bochum (Germany’s 5th largest) in 2015.
