Malcolm Metcalfe, P.Eng.
Enbala Founder and Chief Technology Officer, Enbala

Malcolm Metcalfe says he started Enbala as something he could do part-time so he could spend the rest of the time skiing. Don’t believe it. For his engineering contributions, this ardent supporter of sustainability has been named in the Queen’s Birthday Honors List and was inducted as a Lieutenant of the Royal Victorian Order by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace. Today, along with leading Enbala innovation activity, Malcolm is both a Ph.D. candidate and teacher at The University of British Columbia. Student evaluations rank him among the top instructors in the engineering school, and one student’s comments explain why: “Prof knew his stuff. His stories were funny the first time (and sometimes the second time)."
