Liquid Gas Ireland (LGI) have announced Philip Hannon as its new Policy Director. In the new role for the organisation, Mr. Hannon will lead the Association’s policy advocacy and communication efforts at national and local level, which includes reinforcing the role that lower carbon and renewable gaseous fuels play in Ireland’s decarbonisation journey and highlighting the cost implications of the Climate Action Plan 2021 for rural consumers and businesses.

Commenting, Chair of Liquid Gas Ireland, Brian Derham said: “Philip will play a pivotal role in ensuring that policy makers continue to recognise LPG and BioLPG as a clean, versatile, and alternative lower carbon energy of choice for off-grid energy users. Representing the needs of rural homeowners and businesses and advocating for an energy transition that is fair, affordable, and convenient, is a key priority for LGI”.

Mr Hannon said: “This is an exciting time to join an organisation that has gone from strength to strength. I look forward to building on the momentum Liquid Gas Ireland has established to date including its excellent relationship with industry, departmental and government stakeholders, during a crucial moment for Ireland’s climate ambitions.”

Philip Hannon has over 25 years’ experience in corporate communications and public affairs. For almost a decade, he was engaged as a Ministerial Special Advisor in five separate Government Departments, across two administrations. Between 2011 and 2020, he held the position of Communications and Public Affairs Manager at the Irish Pharmaceutical Healthcare Association, the representative body for the international research based pharmaceutical industry in Ireland.
