David Reay & Associates (DRA)/United Kingdom

Logo-DavidReayDavid Reay & Associates (DRA) was set up early in 1987 as a consulting engineering organisation with an emphasis on energy technologies. It currently operates as a ‘sole trader’ with David Reay as Principal Consultant. While DRA has had Associates for many years, including Professor Colin Ramshaw, regarded as the ‘father’ of process intensification, in 2012 it was decided, because of increasingly close involvements with areas such as process intensification, compact heat exchangers and energy storage, to expand the organisation by bringing in three additional Associates, two at Newcastle University in the Process Intensification Group (Richard Law and Ahmad Mustaffar) and Professor Brian Agnew, also at Northumbria University. They complement the activities of Professor Colin Ramshaw, who has been an Associate for many years. Dr. Barbara Sturm (Kassel University) has also been co-opted into DRA for projects involving energy analyses in specific sectors.
