Chief Executive Officer

Oliver Lancaster

Oliver has worked in the gas industry for 14 years, he began his work in cleaning up contaminated land, primarily on old gasworks sites. 

More recently, in his role as Net Zero Relationship Manager for Wales & West Utilities, his focus has been on the future; leading innovative research and developing demonstration projects to identify the energy solutions required if the UK is to heat homes, power heavy industry and keep the lights on in a green, zero carbon way. 

Oliver said:

"Having worked in the gas industry for the last 14 years, it’s such a privilege to be trusted with an institution as respected as IGEM. My job, as I see it, is to help guide the industry and support our members and Industrial Affiliates through the energy transition – a transition that is essential if we are to decarbonise the UK and get to net zero by 2050. I strongly believe that the easiest, most sustainable and cheapest way to do that, has gas at its core.

"My commitment to you, as members, is that I will build on the excellent work that is being done across our industry, by networks, the gas industry supply chain and installers. I will fight our corner, making the case for our role in helping the UK minimise cumulative emissions and get to net zero as soon as possible."
