After 26 years, energy efficiency heavyweight Dr Paul Bannister has announced he is leaving Energy Action, effective 31 August.
Dr Bannister was the founder of energy efficiency consultancy Exergy, best-known for developing the NABERS Energy and Water rating systems.
After starting the company in 1999, it was bought up by energy management firm Energy Action in 2014, with Dr Bannister staying on as director, projects and advisory services, and then as director, innovation and sustainability.
Writing on LinkedIn, Dr Bannister said it was 26 years since he’d had a major break and that he was taking time off from September until the end of the year due to “annoying and limiting rather than life threatening” health issues.
He said it was a good time to “stop and take stock for a little while”.
We hope Dr Bannister returns fighting fit.
