With over 40 years of engineering and strategic consulting experience, our sibling company Brandnu Energies is focused on delivering innovative equipment and services for compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquid natural gas needs, globally.

Hola, and nice to meet you!

I'm Willie and I'm President of Brandnu Energies. As a connector, strategic advisor, and recovering engineer, my mission (and passion) is to collaborate with innovative organizations to evolve and develop leading-edge NGV/CNG technologies and standards.

With over four decades of global experience in the NGV/CNG industry I've thoroughly enjoyed working with an array of leading organizations and teams in the public and private sectors across most of the world’s continents - military, fisheries, fire and rescue, oil and gas, breathing air technologies and more.

My expertise ranges from electronic control systems, programmable logic controllers (PLC) and metering, to systems design and architecture, field operations, and marketing.

I'd love to learn more about what others are doing in this space, so please don't hesitate to reach to me.
