Reflects growth of interest in low-carbon energy systems
USA-based Gas Technology Institute, a nonprofit research and training organization that develops, demonstrates, and licenses new energy technologies for private and public clients, with a particular focus on the natural gas industry, has changed its name to GTI Energy to reflect the breadth of its mission and capabilities across energy systems.
The GTI Energy name builds on the organization’s legacy of natural gas research to provide a portfolio of research, services, and training focused on scaling low-carbon, low-cost energy solutions that leverage gases, liquids, infrastructure, and efficiency.
“Our track record as a science-based problem-solver is what makes GTI Energy a preferred partner when technical expertise, proven solutions, and impact at-scale are needed. We felt it was time that our brand identity reflected the breadth of our involvement across energy systems,” said David Carroll, CEO of GTI Energy.
Since 1941, the organization said its scope of work has steadily expanded to meet the needs of customers, partners, and communities. Now, an increasing number of organizations around the globe seek to accelerate low-carbon, low-cost energy transitions.
Today, GTI Energy said it is focused on developing, scaling, and deploying energy transition solutions that improve lives, economies, and the environment. GTI Energy embraces systems thinking, open learning, and collaboration to bring solutions from concept to market, with more than 1000 patents secured throughout its 80-year history.
“Our purpose-driven research and services deliver demonstrated solutions that protect air, land, water, and communities, while enhancing economic growth,” said Paula Gant, Senior Vice President for Strategy & Innovation at GTI Energy. “Our trusted team of scientists, engineers, and partners engages with the broader innovation ecosystem to create and operationalize the innovations needed for low-carbon and low-cost energy systems.”
