EPIA general secretary steps down

Over the last years, said EPIA, Adel El Gammal has played an instrumental role in developing the association and strengthening the voice of photovoltaic electricity (PV), both in Europe and world-wide.

“I would like to warmly thank Adel, also on behalf of the Board of Directors, for his major contributions in positioning EPIA as the world’s leading PV association. During the last three years under his leadership, EPIA has launched several strategic initiatives that have fundamentally repositioned PV on the European energy agenda,” commented Ingmar Wilhelm, president of EPIA.

He continued: “The “SET For 2020” study, now recognized as a world reference, has notably established the PV vision and provided the industry with a roadmap positioning PV as a mainstream energy source in Europe.”

Gammal added: “Driving the repositioning of PV has been a very intensive experience. It was also a privilege to develop such a dynamic and cohesive organization, driven by the commitment to establish PV as the cornerstone of a clean, affordable and democratic energy future. With a team of now 25 international professionals from across Europe, EPIA has grown to become the world’s largest and most authoritative PV association; I have no doubt that EPIA will continue to play a leading role in shaping the PV future in Europe and world-wide.”

Gammal will continue to lead the association as Secretary General until the November 30. A successor for the open position of Secretary General will be announced later this year.
