Our Mission

Center for Industrial Progress (CIP) is a for-profit think-tank seeking to bring about a new industrial revolution. We believe that human beings have the untapped potential to radically improve our lives by using technology to improve the planet across a multitude of industries: mining, manufacturing, agriculture, chemistry, and energy. Every individual has the potential for a longer, happier, healthier, safer, more comfortable, more meaningful, more opportunity-filled life.

The keys to a new industrial revolution are a new industrial philosophy, a new industrial policy, and a new approach to communication.



Alex Epstein, President and Founder

Alex Epstein
Alex Epstein is a philosopher who applies big-picture, humanistic thinking to industrial and environmental controversies. He founded Center for Industrial Progress (CIP), a for-profit think tank and communications consulting firm focused on energy and environmental issues, in 2011 to offer a positive, pro-human alternative to the Green movement.

Epstein is the author of The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels (Penguin, 2014), which has been widely praised as the most persuasive argument ever made for our use of coal, oil, and natural gas. Epstein has publicly debated leading environmentalist organizations such as 350.org, Greenpeace, and the Sierra Club. Arguing that industry needs to become a confident champion for energy and freedom, Epstein helps companies use his moral arguments to neutralize attackers, turn non-supporters into supporters, and turn supporters into champions.

He was named “most original thinker of 2014” by The McLaughlin Group for his New York Times bestseller The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels.

Epstein has guest-lectured at dozens of universities including Harvard, Yale, Stanford, and Duke–as well as dozens of Fortune 500 companies. He has publicly debated representatives from many of the world’s leading environmentalist groups, such as 350.org, Greenpeace, and the Sierra Club.



Steffen Henne, Head of Research


Steffen Henne is the head of research at the Center for Industrial Progress. An autodidact on a wide range of energy, industrial, and environmental issues, Henne is often “the man behind the scenes” of CIP’s published work. Alex Epstein wrote of Steffen in The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels, “Steffen Henne, our lead researcher at the Center for Industrial Progress, helped me find the high-quality and wide-ranging data I was looking for. Steffen’s breadth of knowledge about practically every topic in this book is incredible, as is his ability to catch errors.”

He is a native of Germany, where he currently resides.



Eric Dennis, PhD, Senior Fellow


Eric Dennis, Ph.D., Physics, studied at Caltech, Princeton, and University of California Santa Barbara. His graduate work involved the theory of quantum computers and simulating quantum systems. Transitioning to quantitative finance, he has built derivatives models on trading desks at Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, and Swiss Reinsurance, where he pioneered a unified, state-of-the-art modeling framework for portfolio credit derivatives. He currently works in asset management at a major insurance company. His experience in finance, complemented by independent study of monetary economics, provides a unique combination of hands-on knowledge and theoretical insight to assess current macroeconomic issues. His interests include questions of central planning, free banking, the use and abuse of mathematical models, and the scientific fundamentals of energy.



Pierre Desrochers, PhD, Senior Fellow


Pierre Desrochers is a Senior Fellow at the Center for Industrial Progress and Associate Professor of geography at the University of Toronto. His main research interests are economic development, technical innovation, business-environment interactions, and energy policy and food policy.
