A New Start for the Energy Collective

The Energy Collective is making a fresh start under new ownership. The website, started in 2007 by Robin Fray Carey, has been acquired by Energy Post Productions, the publishers of the successful European-based website Energy Post (

Like The Energy Collective, Energy Post is an open-access medium that reports on, analyses, and debates the important energy issues of today. In combination, The Energy Collective and Energy Post have the potential to become one of the most powerful international platforms for vigorous energy debate and top-level analysis.

Many readers know that The Energy Collective was dealt a terrible blow in December with the untimely passing of Robin Fray Carey. Under Robin’s inspired leadership, The Energy Collective has grown into an indispensable part of the North American and international energy media landscape. Energy Post will build on this heritage and invest in The Energy Collective to ensure that it will get a new lease on the future.

Both publications have as their goal to be a voice of reason in the energy debate. Both aim to provide an independent, open-access platform for well-informed people to share analyses and viewpoints based on factual and rational arguments. We believe there is a need for such platforms, given the enormous stakes in the energy debate.

Our intention is for the two websites to continue independently of each other, as one tends to focus more on Europe and the other on North America, although we will obviously try to make use of synergies, including cross-publication of articles, to make them reach an even wider audience. We strongly stand by The Energy Collective’s slogan, to be a platform for “The World’s Best Thinkers on Energy and Climate” and we fully intend to develop The Energy Collective further along the same lines. 

We hope you – our readers and contributors, who over the years have turned The Energy Collective in the high-quality website it is today – will continue to support us in what we feel is an important pursuit.

If you have any ideas, suggestions, or questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us. Please note that we are still in the process of migrating the website to a new system. We apologize for any technical problems that may occur.
