Jan is a senior analyst with the responsible fossil fuels team at the Pembina Institute, Canada’s leading energy think tank.  Prior to joining the Pembina Insitute, Jan worked in consulting on oil and gas emissions. Through this work he gained a thorough understanding of the technical challenges associated with quantifying emissions.
 
He holds a master's degree in mechanical engineering and a bachelor's degree in aerospace engineering, both from Carleton University. His graduate research was focused on alternative fuel combustion. He also completed an internship in Stuttgart, Germany, assisting with research at a carbon capture test facility.

Evaluating the benefits of using new technologies to find methane leaks Summary plus full paper

Publication
May 31, 2021 - By Jan Gorski, Dave Risk, Emmaline Atherton

New technologies have the potential to further reduce the cost of finding methane leaks for producers of all sizes through smart design of leak detection and repair (LDAR) programs, the right combination of technologies, and collaboration between producers within the same geographic area. This study conducted multiple simulations to evaluate the impact of alternative technologies on the cost and effectiveness of LDAR, finding cost reductions that in some cases exceeded 50%. 

Delivering on the promise of nature-based carbon offsets Developing a credible offset market depends on the quality and measurement of natural assets

Blog
April 27, 2021 - By Jan Gorski

The valuation and measurement of Canada’s forests, wetlands and peatlands, known as nature-based solutions, can contribute to carbon offset markets, but only with consistent protocols in place.

Nature-based climate solutions With well-designed protocols, Canada’s natural assets could provide significant carbon offsets

Publication

Direct emissions reductions are the most effective way to safely limit warming, but carbon offsets through nature-based solutions have a role to play — if they are done right. Nature-based offsets can mobilize private capital to reduce emissions effectively in the short term, while we seek feasible solutions for emission sources that are currently difficult to abate.

Cover of hydrogen strategy comments

Recommendations for advancing Alberta’s hydrogen strategy Submission to the Government of Alberta

Publication

On behalf of the Pembina Institute, Chris Severson-Baker, Nina Lothian and Jan Gorski submitted comments in February, 2021, to the Government of Alberta following a request for feedback that will inform the province’s Natural Gas Vision and Strategy, and hydrogen strategy.

Dec. 18, 2020 - By Jan Gorski

The Alberta government has made significant investments in decarbonizing oil and gas, and must now turn to investing in emerging sectors.
