Coal Mine Methane Policy Analyst
Conal works on coal mine methane, which has a bigger impact on climate change than the greenhouse gas emissions from shipping and aviation combined. Ember cooperates on this topic with organisations such as the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe, United Nations Environmental Program and European Union institutions.
Ember’s policy engagement focuses on highlighting the need for action on coal mine methane. This includes analysing how emissions should be monitored, reported and verified, as well as being captured and utilised to mitigate damage to the environment.
Conal lives in Ireland. He studied at Trinity College Dublin, University College London and University College Dublin. He previously lived in Eastern Europe working on international public policy.
