Jason WangAnalyst

Jason Ruochen Wang is an analyst working on the Pembina Institute's electricity program, including Canada’s net-zero electricity grid goal and electric vehicle infrastructure. Jason has an undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Alberta and a Master of Science in engineering and policy analysis from TU Delft in The Netherlands that focused on strategic, "deep uncertainty" thinking and the science-policy interface. Jason’s thesis was related to assessing the applicability of integrated assessment modelling to national and subnational clean energy policymakers.

He has previously worked with the Government of Alberta on climate policy analysis, industrial carbon pricing regulations, and adaptation risk management. He has also worked on industrial energy efficiency in a pulp mill, resource governance research with the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, distributed energy systems modelling at the Centre for Integrated Energy Research in the U.K., and improving decision-making processes in the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. He previously led the University of Alberta EcoCar team, which builds and races ultra-efficient hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.

Jason is based on Edmonton and can be found biking, rock climbing, and promoting active transportation outside of work.
