Most commonly known as “Dan W.” I’ve been described as a “charter member of the climate-energy wonk club.”
Dan Woynillowicz has over two decades of experience working at the interface between energy, climate change, policy and politics, and is the Principal of Polaris Strategy + Insight. He also serves as Board chair of the B.C Centre for Innovation and Clean Energy (CICE) and is an advisor to the Clean Economy Fund.
Prior to establishing his consulting firm, he was the Deputy Director at Clean Energy Canada, a think tank at Simon Fraser University. He began his career at the Pembina Institute as a policy analyst, ultimately serving as the Director of Strategy and Communications.
Throughout his career, he has researched and written numerous reports on the environmental, climate change, economic and political dimensions of the energy transition in Canada. He is frequently called to testify before regulatory and legislative bodies, quoted in media, and regularly publishes commentary in Canada’s leading publications.
In 2019 he received a Clean50 award for advocacy, recognizing his leadership in clean energy solutions.
He lives, works, and plays on unceded Coast Salish Territory, specifically that of the Lekwungen and W̱SÁNEĆ peoples (Victoria, BC).
