In addition, GSE members elected new three GSE ExCom members: Claus Obholzer (E.ON Gas Storage, Germany), Cécile Prévieu (Storengy, France) and René Zwanepol (TAQA, The Netherlands).

The new members will work together with the GSE ExCom members with current mandates Adam Elbæk (Energinet.dk), Georg Dorfleutner (RAG), Gaetano Mazzitelli (Stogit), László Fritsch (Hungarian Gas Storage).

 

Since 2007, Lubor Veleba is a Director at RWE Gas Storage, s.r.o. with responsibility for the sales and finance aspects of RWE’s gas storage business in the Czech Republic.

Lubor Veleba also serves as a member of the board of Czech Gas Association.

 

Lubor Veleba said: “Gas Storage Europe will continue to be a trusted partner to the EU institutions in delivering the energy vision for Europe. GSE has worked hard on transparency issues, by establishing the AGSI+ platform, and will continue its work on market rules, security of supply and the role of gas storage. ”

 

And he added: “I value the contributions of the outgoing GSE President Nicole Otterberg and her predecessor Jean-Marc Leroy, now GIE President. Year 2016 will be busy and challenging but I feel privileged to lead GSE and look forward to working with a team of dedicated people who can add value to the discussions with EU decision makers and stakeholders.”
