Trina Solar has announced the election of its head of EU public affairs Jodie Roussell as vice-president of the board of the European Photovoltaic Industry Association (EPIA).
The election took place during the EPIA’s Annual General Meeting held in Brussels in March 2013.
Prior to Roussell’s candidacy and successful election, she has served as a head of European public affairs at Trina Solar.
EPIA consists of approximately 180 members across the entire value chain and represents the European PV industry.
Roussell is said to be the first female candidate as well as the first female elected board member since the foundation of EPIA in 1985.
Trina Solar became a member of EPIA in 2006.
