South West Section

IGEM has a network of Sections that enhances membership by offering a local perspective and enabling involvement with issues in and around the gas industry. The Sections are run by volunteers who organise a range of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) events and networking opportunities.

Each Section has its own Chair and Secretary to deal with any queries you may have within your area.

The Section Committee

Philippa 'Pip' Wrenn, South West Section Chair

Philippa Wrenn

Pip started her engineering career with a graduate role at Powerco, the second largest gas distribution company in New Zealand. After over four years in the New Zealand industry, she moved to the UK for broader job opportunities and the chance to travel around Europe. A chemical engineer by training (University of Canterbury, NZ) she is now a Chartered Engineer with both IPENZ and IGEM. Pip has been working for the past two years for Wales & West Utilities (WWU).

Pip's role with WWU is in the Asset Strategy and Performance team with a focus on the development and implementation of the new Network Outputs Methodology (NOMs or monetised risk, as it is more commonly known).

"I have been an active member of NZIGE and IGEM for six years and have reaped the benefits of my professional memberships. I look forward to organising the legendary South West technical paper evenings and hope to add a technical site visit or two to our repertoire. As the SW representative on the IGEM YPN, I also hope to engage with our younger members more and hold an event further south than Bristol!"
