Speaker Bio
Brendan helps utility, government and private-sector clients implement strategies to effectively decarbonize the transportation and building sectors and is a passionate leader in the energy transition.

Brendan has been central to some of North America’s most innovative climate policy. Notably, he led development of the world’s first 100% “EV Ready” residential parking requirement, and has since advised multiple municipalities on such requirements (including the Cities of Toronto and Vancouver). Likewise, he designed the first-of-its-kind BC EV Ready Retrofit program for BC Hydro. With regards to buildings, Brendan was instrumental in the development of the BC Energy Step Code (an energy “reach code”) and subsequent carbon performance requirements. He has also assisted a wide range of clients with strategic planning; energy project financing programs; building rating and disclosure; EV charging infrastructure; and building decarbonization strategies.
