HIGH PERFORMANCE BUILDING ALLIANCE (HPBA)
CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER (Fixed Term 3 Year Contract)
The High Performance Building Alliance has recently established a Centre of Excellence which aims to promote a climate change approach to the built environment.
The EU Directive on the energy performance of buildings has been transposed into the Irish regulations since 2019. The regulations require that all new buildings occupied, meet the NZEB standard for energy performance from the 31st December 2020. The requirement has been in place for owned and occupied buildings of the public sector since the end of 2018.
The regulations will advance the performance of dwellings to a 70% improvement relative to 2005 buildings with a typical buildings energy performance at A2. Ireland has been leading the way on legislation for the sector and Wexford has been to the forefront in the advancement of the energy performance buildings as a key strategy with funding support from Wexford County Council and the Waterford and Wexford Education and Training Board. Ultimately warmer buildings mean better homes, address fuel poverty, reduce the carbon footprint and support job creation.
The HPBA is now seeking a CEO who will report to the Board and bring strategic vision and innovation to the centre of excellence to achieve its ambitious objectives as a leader and champion in high performance buildings. The CEO will work to advance innovation and sustainable solutions through collaboration with local government, public agencies, industry, education and training stakeholders and social partners.
The closing date for receipt of completed applications is 4.00pm, Thursday, 14th January 2021. Applications should be emailed to email@example.com
