    Exactly one year ago this week, I accepted a new challenge - to lead the digitalization of our operational fleets as EVP Digital Evolution in the Chief Operations Officer area (COO) covering roughly 35GW of generation and storage assets with a working gas capacity of around 8 billion cubic meters. Excited by the opportunity, I remember thinking that my background in engineering, asset management and strategy execution would serve me well in shaping the digital future of our operational business.

    Initial Focus on Natural Gas and Methane Performance

    Growing awareness of methane’s contribution to climate change—pound for pound 80 times more potent than carbon dioxide in the near term—was punctuated at COP26 last year when 100+ countries pledged to cut methane emissions by 30% or more by 2030. In parallel, dozens of the world’s largest energy producers continue to make progress toward methane emission reduction goals established in multiple partnership programs (e.g., US EPA Natural Gas STAR, ONE Future, Oil & Gas Methane Partnership 2.0, and the Natural Gas Sustainability Initiative).
