The European Association for External Thermal Insulation Composite Systems (EAE) continues to grow. This became clear at the general meeting in Prague on May 20, 2022, at which board elections were also on the agenda.

The governing body was unanimously re-elected by the delegates. Only the previous board member for marketing affairs, Alessandro Siragusa from the Italian ETICS asso-ciation Cortexa, resigned after six years in office because he was taking on more re-sponsibilities in his company. To replace him Diego Marcucci (Cortexa) was elected, who has been Chairman of the EAE Marketing Committee for a number of years. This position will be filled during the later course of the year. The EAE Board is thus composed as follows:

  • President: Jacek Kulig from the Polish ETICS Association SSO
  • Vice President: Zuzana Sternova from Slovakian ETICS association OZ ZPZ
  • Technical Affairs: Clemens Hecht from the Austrian ETICS Association QG Thermal Insulation Systems
  • Marketing Affairs: Diego Marcucci from the Italian ETICS association Cortexa
  • Finance and Public Affairs: Christoph M. Stolz from the German ETICS association VDPM

The auditors Rüdiger Lugert (Keimfarben) and Markus Niermann (Heck Wall Systems) were unanimously confirmed.

New EAE members

Thanks to the positive development in membership numbers over the past two years, the extraordinary members now have three spokespersons. Arnaud Duvielguerbigny (PU Europe) and Dr. Andreas Kiesewetter (DAW) were confirmed in their positions. Carina Grebe (EJOT) was newly elected – also unanimously.

The new EAE members since the beginning of 2022 are:

  • APU AG
  • BASF
  • Henkel Ceresit
  • Wienerberger Building Solutions

EAE supports German Energy Advisors Network (DEN)

As a guest, Hermann Dannecker introduced the German Energy Advisors Network (DEN e. V.) to the EAE members. With the increasing need to improve the energy efficiency of buildings in view of the war in Ukraine and to implement the future requirements of a revised EU Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD), qualified advice and project support are becoming increasingly important. Dannecker asked EAE members to support in their countries the networking of energy consultants at European level following the example of the EAE for the ETICS industry. Ralf Pasker assured the support of the association. Contacts be-tween the EAE and DEN will be continued in the coming months.
