EET Hydrogen Power announces the appointment of Rob Wallace as CEO
.

Wallace’s extensive energy expertise is poised to propel EET’s hydrogen initiatives, marking a significant stride towards sustainable energy transition goals.

Rob has spent 25 years in the energy and utilities industry, with significant experience with companies such as Shell and Centrica. Most recently, Rob’s role was with the Irish electricity company ESB, overseeing asset and plant commissioning, commercialisation, and the establishment of processes and procedures at all levels at ESB’s Carrington Power Station. Later in this role, Rob took up a newly created role in ESB’s Asset Development Team as Hydrogen Manager to deliver ESB’s Net Zero 2040 strategy.

As CEO of EET Hydrogen Power, Rob will oversee the construction and management of EET’s CHP plant, an integral part of EET’s overall ambition to create an energy transition hub in the North West, which will include the UK’s first low-carbon process refinery and leading large scale low carbon hydrogen production hubs. 

EET Hydrogen Power will play a significant role in reducing emissions at Stanlow. More energy efficient than current processes, the CHP will initially deliver 13 per cent carbon dioxide emissions from the site, or 180,000 tonnes per annum. Once powered by EET Hydrogen, a reduction of 740,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions will be achieved, equivalent to taking 350,000 cars off the road.

EET Hydrogen Power will contribute to EET Fuels’ ambitions for decarbonisation. It adds further fuel switching capability beyond the £45 million hydrogen-ready furnace in construction at Stanlow (announced in 2022), a first of a kind in the UK, which will again be fuelled by EET Hydrogen.

Rob Wallace, CEO, EET Hydrogen Power, said:

“Through its ambitious hydrogen and industrial carbon capture projects, EET has made tremendous steps in recent years to become a leading example of innovation and decarbonisation in the UK. I’m looking forward to working with the wider team to achieve these plans and support the region’s decarbonisation plans.”

Tony Fountain, CEO of EET, added:

“We wish Rob a warm welcome to EET. He brings extensive knowledge on hydrogen and power development and will make a valuable contribution to successfully implementing our ambitious decarbonisation projects.”
