Kristine Wiley has been named director of GTI’s new Hydrogen Technology Center, set up for GTI’s low-carbon hydrogen efforts.
GTI, which has executed dozens of hydrogen projects at facilities across the US and around the world, has established the Hydrogen Technology Center to facilitate increased use of hydrogen in an integrated energy system to meet the challenges of decarbonisation.
The Des Plaines, Illinois-based company’s Hydrogen Technology Center includes top-tier subject matter experts, thought leadership, recently upgraded labs and facilities, and decades of experience.
Wiley will serve as the leader for the Hydrogen Technology Center and related business activities, working across GTI to synchronise deep industry knowledge and technical expertise to serve 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.
Mike Rutkowski, GTI Senior Vice-President, Research and Technology Development, said, “Kristine has extensive hands-on experience in assessing and minimising environmental impacts and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Along the way, she has built strong client relationships and established a solid reputation in the industry. 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.
