As Head of Analysis, Rob leads the Economics team and is responsible for ensuring high-quality analysis is provided. He has an in-depth understanding of the way in which economics intersects with policymaking.
Rob works across the sectors that are engaged with the net zero transition including heat, energy efficiency, biofuels, hydrogen and transport. He has significant expertise of domestic heat economics and finance having developed a comprehensive economic tool that evaluates the performance and economics of heat pumps across various building typologies and climates. He has also worked with heat pump manufacturers to assess the viability of different business models such as RHI 3rd Party Finance and facilitate their discussions with financiers.
Recently, Rob has led teams that estimated the number of jobs that will be supported by the net zero transition, modelled in-detail policy options to encourage domestic energy efficiency in a local authority-area, and assessed heat decarbonisation options for rural homes.
