He leads the Energy and Industry practice area, where he specialises in energy markets, particularly LNG and renewable power, the impact of carbon policy on industry, institutional design, and the long run interactions of energy, the economy and the environment. He has also deep knowledge on the economic and financial effects arising from climate damages.
He advises on the interaction of public and private interests in these topic areas, and this is reflected in the clients he serves. These range from private firms such as Shell and RWE npower, to multi-lateral organisations, such as the UNFCCC, the OECD and the New Climate Economy, to governments from across the world, for example in China, South Africa, Jordan and Nigeria as well as the UK and the European Commission.
Philip joined Vivid Economics in 2009. He holds an MSc in Economics (with merit) from UCL and a BA (Hons) in Philosophy, Politics and Economics from the University of Oxford.
