President, Delphi

As President of Delphi, Carol-Ann ensures Delphi is executing on its mission by aligning its expertise and services with evolving client needs and offering top-of-the-line sustainability solutions.  Prior to this role, Carol-Ann led the Delphi Innovation and Cleantech team, which works with the private and public sectors to accelerate the deployment and commercialization of clean solutions, strategic planning, as well as technology road mapping and market scenarios. The team also leverages clean technology partnerships to deliver B2B programming for the GLOBE Series, which convenes the innovators and changemakers that aim to accelerate the clean economy.

Carol-Ann brings over 20 years of experience in clean innovation. Her international and multidisciplinary experience focuses on the environment/energy nexus, encompassing a broad range of issues including emissions trading, policy analysis and formulation, and program development; and clean technology assessment, development and commercialization.

Carol-Ann was formerly the Director of Offsets Development and Industry Relations for Climate Change Central, and a Policy Advisor in the Air Quality and Climate Change Branch of the Ontario Ministry of the Environment. She has a PhD in Geography, focusing on wind power commercialization, and a Master of Science in Environmental Change & Management, from the University of Oxford.

Carol-Ann is a proud member of Canada’s Clean50 for 2020, as well as the Clean16 for 2020 – the leader in her category.  Beyond Delphi, Carol-Ann is fortunate to make the most of the Rocky Mountain activities in all seasons with her husband, teenage daughters and 3 dogs.
