Juergen Goeller re-elected as EPEE chair

EPEE-boardBELGIUM: Juergen Goeller of UTC Carrier was re-elected as chair of the European Partnership for Energy and the Environment (EPEE) at the group’s AGM today.

Members also elected Julien Soulet from Honeywell as vice-chair and Rainer Grosse-Kracht from Bitzer as treasurer of the association.

Ensuring that the industry understands Europe’s new EU F-gas regulations, and that their implementation is consistent across the EU, were revealed as the key priorities for EPEE over the next year.

“EPEE has enjoyed a very successful – and busy – last twelve months,” announced EPEE director general Andrea Voigt. “We welcomed three new members – A-Gas, Schneider Electric, and Samsung – thereby increasing the number of our members to 44. We also held events across the world on F-gas, heating and cooling, energy efficiency, and much more, and have further positioned our association as a leading voice on the European and global stage.”
