Beijing: China's National Institute for Clean-and-Low-Carbon Energy (NICE) announced the organizational structure and leadership team that will be the driving force behind the research institute's new operational model.
NICE president and CEO Mike Davis said the new organization puts in place the critical foundation essential to deliver global impact in the area of clean energy technology creation and positions NICE to accelerate growth and delivery of energy and environmental innovation to market at scale. NICE is rapidly becoming a world-class industrial research and development institute developing advanced science and technology innovations with partners worldwide that address strategic global energy and environmental challenges for China and the globe.
Commenting on the NICE leadership team, Davis said: "The path ahead for success is clear – China and the world must together invent new ways to extract, process and convert fossil fuels for use in energy production and utilization – in a way that is clean, safe, reliable and affordable. We have assembled a team of the world's top scientific and engineering talent, we are well funded with strong financial backing and partnership support from key Chinese stakeholders and international industrial partners and we are delivering breakthrough innovations surrounding clean and low carbon energy."
"I have every confidence in the new organizational structure of NICE and the abilities and dedication of a world class and internationally renowned NICE leadership team together with our scientific, engineering and operations talent to effectively develop and deploy the necessary breakthrough technologies, processes and products that are fundamental to our energy future."
NICE is currently developing technologies, processes and products that enhance the strategic value of coal and other fossil fuels through upgrade and conversion. Such innovations reduce and/or eliminate the environmental impact of these critical fuel sources thereby keeping coal and other fossil fuels economically feasible and environmentally acceptable.
