Wood has appointed Dan Carter as Global Director of Decarbonisation and New Energies, to further strengthen the company’s commitment and leadership in accelerating the global transition to a net-zero future.

As more countries and industries set ambitious decarbonisation targets, there is a growing urgency in understanding how these goals can be achieved. Wood creates solutions to help clients as they transition to a low-carbon energy mix and meet the growing demand for new energy sources and future fuels.

With more than 20 years’ experience in the energy industry, Dan’s career has focused on working with clients to define and develop solutions to their complex challenges. In this new role, Dan will advise clients across multiple sectors on how to reduce their emissions from carbon intensive assets and seizing opportunities for integration of alternative energy vectors. By using Wood’s Decarbonisation SCORE methodology, which he co-developed, Dan is providing organisations with tailor-made roadmaps to achieve their carbon reduction goals.

“As a leader in the energy industry, Dan’s in-depth expertise across the asset life cycle and his vision for industrial decarbonisation, combined with Wood’s innovative solutions, will help our clients succeed in their journey to eliminate emissions.” said Andy Hemingway, President of Energy, Innovation & Optimisation.

Commenting on his new role, Dan added, “As the world embraces the energy transition, Wood is rising to the challenges it presents by exploring cutting edge solutions and developing our expertise so we can pave the way to a more resilient future. I am really excited to be appointed in this role where I will be focusing on delivering transformative projects that ensure our clients deliver on their net-zero commitments, foster more responsible investments and drive sustainable economic growth.”

Dan has a master’s degree in chemical and bioprocess engineering from the University of Wales and a Master of Business Administration from Warwick Business School. He is also a Fellow of the Institution of Chemical Engineers and a Chartered Engineer.
