Ms. Anca Gurzu

Europe Correspondent


Anca is the Brussels-based correspondent for Cipher News, where she covers the technological innovations we need to fight climate change. She is a climate and energy journalist with more than a decade of reporting experience spanning two continents.

Anca has been covering the ins and outs of Europe’s energy transition from the European Union capital for over ten years, five of which with POLITICO Europe. She built a reputation of delivering scoops on the EU’s  challenges to green its economy and adapt to climate change, while also tying policy with on-the-ground realities through analysis and feature stories. Her reporting trips range from the Eastern European countryside to the Finnish Arctic Circle.

Prior to  joining Cipher, Anca completed a fellowship in business journalism at the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business together with a few other journalists from around the world. In 2019, she was one of the  several energy journalists selected to participate in the Energy Journalism Initiative at Columbia University’s Center on Global Energy Policy in New York City. She also wrote about the intersection of climate and finance as a freelancer for the development publication Devex.

Anca has moderated numerous live conferences and interviewed leaders and CEOs across Europe.
