Gas Technology Institute (GTI), a leading research, development, and training organization addressing global energy and environmental challenges, has named Kristine Wiley director of its Hydrogen Technology Center.
U.S.-based GTI said it established the Hydrogen Technology Center to facilitate increased use of hydrogen in an integrated energy system to meet the challenges of decarbonization.
Wiley will serve as the leader for the Hydrogen Technology Center and related business activities, working across GTI to synchronize deep industry knowledge and technical expertise to serve our customers and stakeholders. The Hydrogen Technology Center will bring together public-private partnerships to determine how to best use this low-carbon energy carrier for storing and “time shifting” renewable energy and leveraging the existing robust natural gas storage and delivery infrastructure to facilitate the transition to a low-carbon future.
“Kristine has extensive hands-on experience in assessing and minimizing environmental impacts and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Along the way, she has built strong client relationships and established a solid reputation in the industry,” says Mike Rutkowski, GTI Senior Vice President, Research and Technology Development. “I am confident she will help GTI build upon our unparalleled experience and technology development capabilities to enable a hydrogen economy and deliver clean energy solutions.”
Wiley’s career spans nearly two decades at GTI, where most recently she served as an R&D director responsible for GTI’s Environmental, Risk, and Integrity Management R&D programs, leading industry collaborative research focused on developing solutions for the detection and mitigation of methane emissions from the natural gas industry.
