downloadThe Board of the Sustainable Authority of Ireland (SEAI) is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr Jim Gannon as CEO of the Authority.  The appointment takes place with effect from 23rd May 2016 and Jim will lead the development and delivery of the Authority’s new five year strategy.

 

SEAI Chair, Ms Julie O’Neill said: “Jim Gannon is an energetic and widely respected energy professional with a wealth of experience across all aspects of energy policy implementation.  Working with the executive team, he will build on the successes of recent years and lead the organisation into the next phase which demands a rapid decarbonisation of our entire energy system.  I wish Jim all the best in his new role and have every confidence the organisation will prosper under his leadership.”

 

Speaking on his appointment, Mr Gannon said: The new White Paper and recent commitments made at COP21 in Paris provide Ireland with both challenges and significant opportunities over the coming period.  As a result, Ireland is likely to experience change at an infrastructural scale in addition to a technology-led democratisation of the energy system across electricity, transport and heat.  I look forward to leading SEAI as it plays a central role in our transition to a more economically, socially and environmentally sustainable energy future.”

Mr. Gannon is an Engineering Graduate of NUI Galway, with a Masters in Environmental Assessment from the University of Wales Aberystwyth and MBA from the UCD Smurfit School of Business. He has worked within the energy sector throughout his career, delivering projects at a European, national and regional level for public and private sector organisations. This has included projects across conventional and renewable energy, transmission and distribution infrastructure, energy demand management and technology development. Most recently, he held the position of Director at RPS Group, leading the Energy, Environment and Health and Safety sector.
