Liz is a professional geologist and rigorous optimist, passionate about the natural fit between the geothermal and oil and gas industries. During her 12 years with a large E&P company in Calgary, Liz gained experience across a wide spectrum of plays and hydrocarbon extraction methods. This laid the foundation for Liz’s commitment not to choose between environment and economy. Through innovation, she believes we can grow both. Liz started Castle Rock Consulting Ltd. to bridge the gap between geothermal and oil and gas and connect all people — end users, corporations, developers and individuals — with their thermal resources.
Through her work as Ambassador Coordinator with the Canadian Geothermal Energy Association, Liz inspires and mobilizes volunteers to showcase geothermal as an important resource for Canada’s energy mix. Thorough advocacy, CanGEA’s Ambassador Program is tackling policy and regulatory barriers in Canada to build a strong and vital geothermal energy industry in Canada.
Liz was honoured to become a Fellow with the Energy Futures Lab in 2017. The Energy Futures Lab is a group of diverse energy leaders who are envisioning and co-creating the energy system that the future requires of us.
