Speaker Bio: 

Chris HChris Henderson is the Author of Aboriginal Power.

For the past two and a half decades his professional focus has been at the intersection of clean energy, sustainable development, environmental action, economic development and Aboriginal communities.  He is Canada’s most respected commentator on Aboriginal clean energy opportunities, and acts a Clean Energy Advisor to over a dozen indigenous communities from coast-to-coast-to-coast.

Chris plays a leadership role in the domain of Aboriginal Power, acting as:

  1. President of Lumos Energy Clean Energy Value Advisors Inc.
  2. Program Designer and Lead Mentor, 20/20 Catalysts Program
  3. National Coordinator, Aboriginal Clean Energy (ACE) Network
  4. Managing Director, Canadian Aboriginal Fund for Energy (CAFÉ)

Aboriginal communities, governments, utilities, private corporations, independent power development companies and financing firms regularly seek Chris’ strategic advice to catalyze clean energy projects and markets.

In 1988, Chris co-founded The Delphi Group, a leading national environmental consulting firm that has been at the forefront of efforts to combat climate change through cutting edge business strategies, innovative technologies and new economic thinking.

As head of Lumos Energy Chris wears multiple hats.  Through long-standing relationships with First Nations, Métis and Inuit communities he works to make hydro, wind and biomass projects a reality that can fuel sustainable prosperity for Canada’s First Peoples.  He acts as a mentor for Aboriginal clean energy leaders country-wide.
