Eamonn Ives joined the Centre for Policy Studies in November 2018 and specialises in energy and environmental policy. He also sits on the advisory board of Climate Assembly UK, and previously worked as a Researcher for Bright Blue, where he authored five publications.
Eamonn adopts a techno-optimist approach to environmental issues, grounded in laissez faire economics twinned with proportionate government intervention to overcome challenges such as climate change, air pollution, and resource use. He is also interested in transport policy, urbanism, and innovation.
Since joining the CPS, Eamonn has authored three reports – Platforms for Growth: How new digital technologies can boost productivity in Britain’s small businesses, Driving Change: How Hydrogen Can Fuel a Transport Revolution, A Rising Tide: Levelling up left-behind Britain – and one pointmaker – Tipping the Balance: How Trade and Investment can Rebalance the UK Economy.
Eamonn frequently writes comment articles, and has featured in CapX, ConservativeHome, CityAM, Reaction, Telegraph Refresh, HuffPost, The Independent, and The Times Red Box.
