I specialise in the analysis and wider impacts of climate and air pollution policies, and emissions from the energy sector

Katrina Young, Principal Consultant

Katrina specialises in climate and air pollution policy, emission inventory compilation and analysis of environmental data. She has experience of climate policy analysis through working with countries in Europe, Africa, Latin America, and the European Environment Agency. Katrina also works with UK local authorities to support them following declarations of climate emergencies by modelling decarbonisation pathways with actions to meet their net zero targets. Katrina leads projects quantifying and evaluating national mitigation policies, and supports countries with the reporting of their policies to the EU under the Governance Regulation and the National Emissions Ceiling Directive. Katrina also works on assessing the wider impacts of mitigation and adaptation actions through co-benefit analysis, including economic analysis.

Katrina is an internationally recognised Energy expert for GHG and AQ emission inventories. She has first-hand experience of core inventory compilation through working on several national GHG and AQ inventories, and leads the training of national inventory teams in the energy sector through capacity building projects. Katrina is a UNFCCC qualified Expert Reviewer for the Energy sector and regularly participates as an Energy expert in the ESD, NECD and UNFCCC inventory reviews.

Katrina has been technical lead for numerous projects involving the visualisation of complex environmental data, including interactive pieces on NDCs, GHG inventories and PaMs, allowing the user to explore the data in a transparent and innovative manner. Katrina has extensive project management experience for UK and international projects, and manages Aether’s participation in the EEA’s European Topic Centres.

Outside of work Katrina is a bike mechanic at a local community workshop.
