Change of Chair for eu.ESCO
December 16th, 2009, Frankfurt am Main. The European Building Automation Controls Association (eu.bac) announces that Stephane Le Gentil will be stepping down from his current role as Chairman of the European Association of Energy Services Companies (eu.ESCO) at the end of 2009. Scott Petersen will be replacing him as Chairman in the New Year.
eu.ESCO has been an active working group of eu.bac member companies since 2007. Its purpose is to accelerate the adoption of Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) in Europe to help the European member states achieve their energy efficiency targets. This is accomplished by educating and raising awareness of EPC in particular within the public sector, providing input on EPC to new EU energy legislation consultations and addressing the various hurdles currently slowing down EU-wide adoption of EPC.
Since Stephane Le Gentil became Chairman of eu.ESCO in February 2008, he has led the group to the realisation of many significant achievements. These include the setting up of the group as eu.ESCO to build greater awareness of its purpose and role with target audiences and the running of a tailored one-day EPC workshop in Den Hague attended by over 45 Dutch public sector officials.
“We would like to thank Stephane Le Gentil for the time, effort and leadership he has provided whilst Chairman of eu.ESCO and welcome Scott Petersen to his new role”, commented Dr. Peter Hug, Managing Director of eu.bac.
Scott Petersen is Marketing Director Energy Solutions at Honeywell EMEAI. He is responsible for developing and implementing Honeywell’s energy services business strategy in Europe, Middle East, Africa and India. Scott Petersen is well-known as a speaker at energy and carbon reduction conferences and has published a number of related papers.
