Lucy Garland Senior Consultant


I work on emissions reporting for large point sources and compilation of national emission inventories.

Lucy Garland, Senior Consultant

Lucy has experience in national emission inventories, with a focus on the waste sector, and pollution reporting from industrial point sources. She has led Aether’s contribution to the UK’s devolved administrations’ inventories for a number of years and has contributed to numerous projects around the European-wide industrial emissions reporting systems (Integrated E-PRTR/LCP and EU Registry).

Lucy also helps to create Aether’s tools that support the development of national emission inventories. Key skills include data analysis, data flows, programming languages (R, SQL) and GIS.

Projects include:

  • Leading Aether’s contribution to the UK’s devolved administrations’ inventories.
  • Development of inventory tools and systems for Estonia’s GHG inventory.
  • Capacity building for national GHG inventory teams in eSwatini, Uganda and St Lucia.
  • Supporting the EEA’s EU Registry and Integrated E-PRTR/LCP reporting flows through the European Topic Centre and contributing to development of the updated data models with the revisions to the underlying legislation.
  • Project management of the compilation of the UK Registry (formerly the UK’s submission to the EU Registry).
  • Contributing to the impact assessment for the revision to the E-PRTR Regulation.

Prior to joining Aether, Lucy received an MSci in Chemistry from University College London and undertook research at University of British Columbia. Lucy also has previous experience in industry through her internship in the biomass optimisation and logistics team at Drax Power. Her responsibilities included monitoring of the biomass quality and the analysis undertaken on the biomass as well as a longer-term goal of streamlining and improving the uniformity of the biomass sampling and analysis.

Outside of work Lucy enjoys swimming/triathlons, singing in a choir and cooking/baking.
