Annette Barbara Cutler

BSc Hons. C Geol. FGS.

With over 38 years' extensive experience in the petroleum industry including 16 years in the environment sector, Annette Cutler used her geological qualifications as a baseline from which she has developed a broad technical knowledge with sound commercial expertise.

A self starter, Annette uses her innovative capabilities and lateral thinking to great effect in achieving value adding results and thrives on new challenges, quickly adapting to any situation. Her project co-ordination, project monitoring, impact assessment, networking, mentoring and communication skills are highly developed. Annette has a sound reputation for getting things done and getting results.

In 1993, she started and still heads a small independent consultancy, managing technology innovation in Traditional, Low Carbon and Emerging Energies bringing mainstream energy industry experience to monitoring and managing research in new technology programmes and evaluating emerging and new technology, including state-of-the-art reviews and gap analyses, to protect corporate investments and produce positive results and recommendations. With emphasis on providing high level, quality service with attention to detail to meet the needs of all the company's clients, large or small, the company has developed a diverse and wide client base with much repeat business with word of mouth recommendations to potential new clients, enjoying a solid reputation for being skilled in ensuring that a project achieves its objectives within time and budget constraints

Realising that technology development to implementation and commercialisation would be much quicker with co-operation across the whole supply chain, under Annette's leadership, the company launched, developed and facilitates knowledge sharing networks in UK, Europe and internationally. Following European Commission grant awards, its major knowledge sharing network project on carbon capture and storage (CCS), CO2NET®, is active in Community Capacity Building across the whole CCS supply chain, remains at the forefront of the developing CCS technologies and is now in its 12th year.

Previously project manager of numerous successful joint industry and EU funded Framework projects, Annette now concentrates on applying and passing on her project management skills in mentoring to guide and assist others in successful execution and completion of projects. She is proud of the project successes achieved and the resulting career success of people with whom she has worked. The company provided the technology knowledge support function on carbon abatement, renewables and other emerging energy technologies to UK Health and Safety Executive in development of its Emerging Energy Technology programme.
