Gregor Macdonald is a freelance journalist who covers cities, climate, and energy. After years spent in Boston, Los Angeles, and London, he currently resides with his family in Portland, Oregon.

He has written for the Economist Intelligence Unit, Petroleum Economist, Atlantic Media’s Route Fifty, PV Magazine, Next City, Nature, The Rocky Mountain Institute, and Buzzfeed.

The Gregor Letter is widely read among academic, financial, and policymaking institutions and enjoys substantial readership internationally. The letter primarily relies on industry knowledge gained through regular reporting, and consultation with a global network of experts. There is also a heavy emphasis on data collection and research. The publication cycle is every other Monday, and adheres to a strict deadline: just after midnight Pacific, in time for the morning readership in London.

Subscription rate options are $75 per year or $7.50 per month for individuals, and $300 per year for institutions.

Additionally, all paid subscribers receive a complimentary copy of the Oil Fall series, which has now been updated with the final installment, Electric Candyland. Access to Oil Fall arrives with the Welcome Email, with every new paid subscription.

Feel free to peruse the archive, and if you represent an institution looking to subscribe, please see additional information here about costs and invoicing.
