The Energy Efficiency Council (EEC) has announced the appointment of Paul Lang to the Council’s Board.
Paul is the business development manager for efficiency and demand solutions in Schneider Electric’s Energy and Sustainability Services team. Paul is replacing Stuart Macfarlane, a founding Council Board member who recently retired from the Board after 10 years of service.
Paul brings 25 years of experience in the energy sector, including in energy efficiency and energy management services for both large and small consumers. He began his career as an engineer working for manufacturers of industrial equipment, then with major energy retailers before going on to manage a multi-million-dollar energy efficiency capital program for a major retailer prior to joining the team at Schneider Electric.
