Tom Dagstad

Senior Vice President, add energy

Tom Dagstad is Senior Vice President in add energy and Managing Director of add novatech, an environmental specialist subsidiary of add energy group. Add Energy’s environmental specialists have for decades assisted regulators and offshore oil and gas operators on the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS) with developing reporting standards and emissions quantification methods.  Through this subject matter expertise several environmental management software solutions have evolved, and today all operators active on NCS use one or several of these solutions. The subject matter expertise is still a core capability in the company, but the past years the company has transformed from an environmental consultancy company to an environmental software company. 

Since Tom started in the company in 2007 he has been working with environmental issues related to energy and emissions to air. Most of the blue chip majors operating on the NCS has been a client of him. He has also been involved in several abatement studies for Norwegian environmental authorities and contributed to reporting standards. Tom has been a member of Norwegian Standards committee for the ISO 50001 standard. Prior to joining add energy Tom worked as a research fellow at Norwegian University of Science and Technology exploring the potential of osmotic power. Tom has a Master’s degree in Chemical Engineering from the same university, and an MBA from Norwegian School of Economics.
