The Board of the Future Fuels CRC has announced that David Norman has been appointed as inaugural Chief Executive Officer of the Future Fuels CRC.
David was previously CEO of the successful Energy Pipelines CRC and has been a key driver of innovation resulting in the success of the Future Fuels CRC bid.
Future Fuels CRC Board Chairman Charles Rottier congratulated David on this appointment.
“Beyond being Energy Pipelines CRC CEO, David brings a rich history of experience from the international oil and gas industry as well as a drive for innovation,” Mr Rottier said.
“He has previously worked for Royal Dutch Shell for over 21 years in an array of commercial, managerial and technical roles, both in Australia and globally and has demonstrated a long term interest and passion in collaborative projects.”
The Future Fuels CRC is currently being established following the successful application for funding in round 19 of the CRC program. Over the coming months, David will continue to work with partners in the start-up of the Future Fuels CRC with the aim of delivering industry focussed solutions to enable the decarbonisation of Australia’s energy networks.
David provided an update on the establishment and objectives of the Future Fuels CRC at the 2018 APGA Annual Convention and Exhibition held from 8 to 11 September in Darwin.
The Future Fuels CRC is a seven-year national collaboration between the federal government, universities and industry partners to accelerate the research that the Australian energy industry needs to enable a transformation towards a low carbon economy.
