What Graham Weale's clients say
"Thank you for your excellent suggestions as to how the European Commission should refocus their Clean Energy Package – I hope they will listen to you."
"You were the first person to explain so clearly why we need a new market design to keep nuclear power on the road."
"We are only a small country and need to know what other countries are doing which could be relevant for us. Your insights from Scandinavia and California were most inspiring."
"You explained so clearly the risks facing the power industry and why investors lost so much in recent years. I only hope that regulators will take your comments on board!"
"It was so useful to have the wider European perspective from an expert who is obviously so knowledgeable about key energy developments across the continent."

Graham Weale's 2023 biography
About Graham Weale
Graham Weale has a deep understanding of their political, economic and technological dimensions and has the mission to explain how the end-goals can be achieved at the lowest cost to society. Weale has the ability to highlight the tough issues which politicians seek to avoid and to explain the challenges of such transitions in a way which is illuminating both to experts & laymen.
Between 2007 and 2016 Weale was Chief Economist at RWE AG, Germany’s largest power generator and helped navigate the company through the German Energiewende (the move out of nuclear power into renewables). He therefore has extensive insight into the operations, challenges and political pressures on large European power companies operating a range of power plants in different countries.
Beforehand he was Director of European Services for IHS Global Insight (now IHS Markit), one of the world’s leading energy and economic consultancies. Whilst his most recent experience focused on Europe’s electricity system, at Global Insight he covered gas and coal extensively and was frequently engaged as an Expert Witness at high-profile gas contract arbitrations. He began his energy career with ExxonMobil in supply and refining.
Weale therefore has first-hand experience of all the major forms of energy. The combination of his technical and commercial background enables him to offer unique insights into the junction of these two disciplines. In the late 1980s he was credited as the first energy expert to highlight the potential of the Combined Cycle Gas plant as a major source of power generation in Europe.
Weale has also worked as advisor to the European Commission and other European Governments and served (2016-17) as Senior Advisor to the Energy Transitions Commission. He has been a guest speaker at the leading Think Tanks and other major conferences in Europe and the USA. He was appointed Honorary Professor of Energy Economics at the Ruhr University Bochum in 2015 in recognition of his wide contributions in the field. He is also a Committee Member for the Chaire Electricité at the Université Paris-Dauphine. He has a physics degree from Oxford University, an MBA and MSc in Systems Engineering.
