Join us June 17 at Noon Pacific Time with our presenter Kristine Wiley, Executive Director, Hydrogen Technology Center, Gas Technology Institute (gti) to learn more about hydrogen and how it can enable a low carbon future for the gas industry.
Decarbonization across all sectors of the economy is becoming increasingly important and renewable gas such as hydrogen will be an important part of reducing emissions globally. The presentation will provide an overview of the role of hydrogen in a low-carbon energy future with a focus on leveraging the existing natural gas infrastructure. Key hydrogen demonstration projects and collaborative research programs will be presented.
As the Executive Director of GTI’s Hydrogen Technology Center (HTC), Kristine Wiley works across the organization to synchronize deep industry knowledge and technical expertise as well as large-scale labs and test facilities to integrate the use of hydrogen into the energy system. Addressing economy-wide decarbonization, the HTC brings together public-private partnerships to facilitate R&D to enable clean hydrogen generation, transport, storage, and utilization at scale while leveraging the existing robust energy infrastructure to facilitate the transition to a low-carbon future.
Kristine’s career spans nearly two decades at GTI. Prior to her current role, she served as an R&D Director responsible for GTI’s Environmental, Risk, and Integrity Management programs. With a focus on reducing environmental impacts, she led collaborative research directly working with industry to develop solutions for the detection and mitigation of methane emissions from natural gas operations. At GTI she has held positions of increasing responsibility managing research addressing utility operations and environmental compliance to advancing the use of low-carbon fuels such as renewable natural gas.
Kristine holds a BA in Biological Sciences from the University of Chicago as well as an MBA from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.
