Dave Jones

Global Programme Lead

Dave has been an electricity analyst for 20 years and is leading Ember’s expansion beyond Europe. He is lead author for Ember’s Global Electricity Review.

From 2000 to 2013, he was working as a front office electricity trading analyst at German utility E.ON. He joined the non-profit Sandbag in 2014, where he was working on phasing out coal in Europe to 2020. In 2020, he helped to launch Ember, and has been helping to expand into three areas. First to set up an Asia electricity transition team, second to build Ember’s core electricity data team, and third to set up a new team to address methane leaks from coal mines.
