Decarbonising the economy is a huge challenge, especially in the transport and industrial sectors, yet many governments have now begun to set targets requiring carbon emissions to be reduced to zero in the coming decades. At the same time, renewable energy sources and other new technologies are plummeting in cost, opening up new possibilities that were unimaginable a few years ago.

The purpose of 12 TO ZERO is to help companies seize opportunities in this turbulent environment. 12 TO ZERO sees the deployment of new technologies such as low emissions hydrogen as a key to enabling high impact decarbonisation.


Jamie has an insatiable curiosity and is constantly immersed in the science, technology and economics of the energy transition. He believes that technological advances will enable a prosperous Energy Transition for business and society. He has international experience across the entire energy value chain, from working in chemical research at some of the UK's top-ranked institutions to managing operations in upstream O&G development.

He has had an avid interest in the potential of hydrogen to decarbonise energy systems and his hydrogen industry expertise was further developed whilst working in business development for one of the world's industrial gas companies; Air Liquide. He has deep market knowledge of large-scale hydrogen production for refineries, petrochemicals and other industrial clients. He knows the challenges of implementing hydrogen, having worked on a variety of industrial-scale projects based on conventional technology and also has experience in the development of a wide variety of innovative low-emissions hydrogen business cases.

Jamie led Air Liquide's engagement in the joint industry project; H-vision, which aims at achieving multi-megaton carbon reductions through the use of carbon-capture enabled hydrogen production in the Port of Rotterdam industrial cluster.

Jamie holds a PhD in industrial chemistry from St Andrews University and an MBA from Rotterdam School of Management. The unique combination of his commercial, industrial and academic expertise gives him an in-depth perspective on the role hydrogen-based technologies can play in decarbonising energy systems.
