Robin Mills established Qamar Energy in 2015 to meet the need for regionally-based Middle East energy insight and project delivery. He is an expert on energy strategy and economics, described by Foreign Policy Magazine as “one of the energy world’s great minds”.

Robin worked for a decade for Shell, concentrating on new business development in the UAE, Qatar, Iraq, Iran and other Middle Eastern countries. He subsequently worked for six years with Dubai Holding and the Emirates National Oil Company (ENOC), where he advanced business development efforts in the Middle East energy sector.
He is non-resident fellow at the Columbia University SIPA Center on Global Energy Policy, spent two years as the Non-Resident Fellow for Energy at the Brookings Institution, is a Senior Fellow of the Iraq Energy Institute, and the author of two books, The Myth of the Oil Crisis, and Capturing Carbon.
