On the 1st of November 2013, he will officially take the helm at Euroheat & Power. “I am honoured and excited to take on this role, and I look forward to working with the outstanding team at Euroheat & Power as well as its members, partners and supporters to build a brighter future together.” said Paul Voss. “I feel fortunate to be representing a sector with so much to contribute to meeting Europe’s environmental, economic and strategic challenges. Moreover, it is exciting to arrive just as the debate about the EU’s post-2020 climate and energy framework gathers pace. The policy decisions taken in the coming years will be decisive in shaping the European energy model for future decades. Euroheat & Power is ready and willing to help move this process forward in an intelligent, pragmatic and cooperative spirit.”
“Euroheat & Power has recruited the best possible replacement for Sabine Froning” said Euroheat & Power President Frédéric Hug. “Paul Voss has long experience of high-level international energy and climate politics and policies as well as experience in the private sector. We are sorry to see Sabine leaving but delighted to have recruited Paul Voss. Euroheat & Power will remain in very capable hands. Paul´s commitment to putting the members at the centre of the organisation will make us stronger and better-placed to achieve our shared ambition of a strong and coherent legal framework for DHC and sustainable energy in general.”
