Tim Cayford is Policy Adviser for Eurogas with a focus on the future role of gas in a sustainable energy system. His doctorate studies provide some expertise in the relevance of gas in a smart energy system, as well as the functionality of gaseous energy not only as a partner to renewable energy, but as a part of renewable energy.
Moreover, his work on community energy systems equips him with some understanding of the future potential in the emergence of bottom-up energy systems, which need to be coordinated with the current networks and businesses that supply our energy needs today, in such a way as to ensure reliability, affordability, and sustainability.
Tim is also manager of the Statistics & Forecasting Committee as well as Eurogas Smart Gas Grid Task Force manager. As an independent adviser, he also advises other associations such as Marcogaz, and energy related technology companies.
