Phoenix Meets sees Director of Business Development at Phoenix Natural Gas, Jonathan Martindale meet with a series of energy sector experts to gain insights on Northern Ireland’s future energy landscape and the solutions that will support and drive energy decarbonisation.

In the first two episodes of the series, now available online, Jonathan meets with Thomas Byrne, Director of Energy Strategy at the Department for the Economy to hear more about the development of Northern Ireland’s new and evolving energy strategy, and David Surplus, Managing Director of B9 Energy who discusses the opportunity for green hydrogen generation and injection into the gas network using excess renewable wind energy.

Jonathan Martindale, Director of Business Development at Phoenix Natural Gas, said: “Climate change and the journey to a net-zero future impacts each and every one of us and as a leading energy utility that has supported home heating carbon reductions for consumers and that is adapting to ensure a sustainable future for its consumers, we felt it was the right time to invest in a series that offers practical insights into what energy transition really means for consumers and how it will be achieved locally, helping to keep consumers at the heart of the discussion on energy transition.”
