Tree Energy Solutions’ board of directors named Marco Alverà as the company’s global chief executive officer. Marco will also be a shareholder in the business.
At a time when hydrogen is poised for huge scale up to assist achieve global decarbonization targets, TES will speed the energy transition by creating some of the world’s largest hydrogen projects, utilizing existing global energy infrastructure for faster and lower-cost hydrogen transportation. Mr. Alverà brings to TES 20 years of experience as a leader and CEO in the energy industry, as well as substantial hydrogen expertise, which will aid in the advancement of new initiatives and the achievement of Europe’s and the world’s decarbonization ambitions.
The Wilhelmshaven Green Electricity Hub in Germany, for example, is expected to produce 250 TWh per year of long-term, non-intermittent carbon-neutral energy to Germany by 2045, accounting for 10% of the total supply. The first phase’s total investment is expected to reach over €2.5 billion, with first shipments expected in early 2026, adding significantly to Germany’s and Europe’s decarbonization and supply security. In the Middle East and North America, hydrogen production and export terminals are being created.
Paul van Poecke and Marcel van Poecke, TES executive co-chairs, said in response to the announcement: “We are thrilled to have found an exceptional executive to lead TES as it starts on a new chapter. Marco has a remarkable career in major energy firms, most recently serving as the CEO of SNAM, a global energy and hydrogen leader, for the past six years. He is regarded as a global pioneer in the energy transition, with unrivaled competence in hydrogen, in particular. Marco possesses the necessary skills and expertise to help TES reach its full potential. He is a genuine, forward-thinking leader with a strong idea of how to address the decarbonization challenge.”
Marco Alverà expressed his thoughts as follows: “I’m pleased with the TES team and the platform they’ve built. They share my goal of accelerating the energy transition in a cost-effective manner by utilizing existing infrastructure to increase green hydrogen supply and availability. This amazing opportunity will allow me to continue pushing the energy transition ahead through creative hydrogen initiatives, which have been my life’s work. I am honored to invest in and lead this industry-leading company into its next chapter, and I am looking forward to leveraging my experience in electricity, gas, and hydrogen at a time when Europe and the rest of the world are raising their ambitions and targets for decarbonization and energy security. TES will make a significant contribution to our mobility, industrial, and electricity customers’ ability to obtain cheaper, safer, and more sustainable energy.”
