• ETI appoints new project manager to its Energy Storage and Distribution technology programme
• Susie Kistuck joins from GE Power Conversion
The Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) has appointed Susie Kistruck as Project Manager for its Energy Storage and Distribution (ES&D) technology programme.
Based at the ETI’s Loughborough office, Susie will manage the delivery of a number of projects within the programme and will report to Phil Proctor, the ETI’s ES&D Programme Manager.
Susie previously worked for GE Power Conversion (formerly Converteam UK Ltd) as a project manager in its Research & Development department, covering projects in a number of areas including renewables, marine, mining & subsea power. These projects were primarily covering overall system developments and included technology development of power electronics, motors/generators, and software.
Founded in 2007, the ETI is a public-private partnership between global energy and engineering companies – (BP, Caterpillar, EDF, E.ON, Rolls-Royce and Shell) – and the UK Government. Its role is to bring together engineering projects that accelerate the development of affordable, secure and sustainable technologies that helps the UK address its long term emissions reductions targets as well as delivering nearer term benefits.
Commenting on her appointment, Susie Kistruck, said: “Having previously worked on project management in new technology and product introduction across a number of sectors, I’m hugely excited to be joining the ETI and working on a technology programme that has significant impact on future UK energy systems.”
Phil Proctor, the ETI’s ES&D Programme Manager, added: “I am delighted that Susie has joined the programme. Our modelling has shown there is a need for storing energy effectively as part of the UK’s future energy mix for 2050 to help to allow affordable renewable sources to expand and reduce the UK’s carbon emissions. Susie’s strong project management experience will contribute hugely to the programme’s success.”
