Ryan Laverty is TC Energy’s Director of Canadian Energy Origination & Development, a team responsible for delivering on the company’s customer-focused low-carbon growth strategy that includes developing the Crossfield Hydrogen Hub in southern Alberta.
Ryan has been involved in power and decarbonization for more than 16 years having started his career at the Alberta Electricity System Operator before moving to TC Energy, then known as TransCanada.
