"Partnerships are key to solving and addressing our global energy challenges. Our new affiliates programme at the Sustainable Gas Institute will provide an opportunity for organizations in the energy sector to work alongside our world-class research team at Imperial College. We are excited to be engaging the full gas value chain in our membership model, opening opportunities to answer the questions that really matter to stakeholders. "
