Hector has over 15 years’ experience in the development and application of macroeconomic modelling tools for impact analysis and holds overall responsibility for maintenance and application of the global E3ME model.

Hector led on CE’s economic contribution to the EU’s Impact Assessment of the 2030 climate and energy package and also the official reviews of the Energy Efficiency Directive and Buildings Directive (EPBD) that fed into the Clean Energy Package. He has extensive experience in project management and working with a range of international clients.

In 2015 he was co-editor of the book Low Carbon, Sustainable Future in East Asia: How to improve the energy system, taxation and policy cooperation and is experienced in reviewing and contrasting different modelling approaches. His most recent papers explored the different assumptions about finance in energy-economy models and estimated the values of stranded fossil fuel assets. He has worked with the UNFCCC and European Commission to better understand economic modelling. Hector is also a departmental fellow of the C-EENRG centre at the University of Cambridge.
