London – 10 November 2022 – We are delighted to announce that Duncan Burt has joined Reactive Technologies as Chief Strategic Growth Officer.
As we grow to support power grid operators around the world, Duncan will join the Executive team to support our strategic growth and the development of new and existing services that are key to operating power grids with growing levels of renewable generation. These include our world-first inertia measurement system, Grid-Sonar™, and a growing product offering that supports grid operators with the deep data and monitoring capabilities they need to support zero carbon grids.
Duncan was formerly Operations Director for the GB Electricity and Gas Transmission Grids and Chief Sustainability Officer for National Grid Group. In these roles, he oversaw the development of the British Power Grid as it became the fastest decarbonizing grid in the G20, saw the first coal-free operation of the GB electricity system, and set a strategy for zero carbon operation by 2025. Alongside this, Duncan worked closely with a range of TSOs across the globe in the run-up to COP26 in Glasgow and was named one of the Global Top 100 Sustainability leaders by Sustainability Magazine.
“I am very proud to be joining Reactive Technologies at such a critical moment for climate change,” Duncan said. “I have worked closely with Reactive Technologies, winner of the BNEF 2022 Pioneer award, for many years and believe that the innovation, deep data, and technology that Reactive has developed will be key to creating secure, zero carbon grids across the globe.”
Marc Borrett, CEO said: “There is a pressing need to transition to secure, zero carbon grids, and our customers across the globe are asking us to help them deliver this at pace. Duncan brings with him a wealth of experience in how to deliver and operate low carbon grids that will be invaluable to our customers as they work with us to develop the tools for a grid powered by renewables.”
