Brussels, 4 October 2022

The European Commission has decided today to appoint Pierre Schellekens as Director ‘Energy policy: Strategy and Coordination’ for the Directorate-General for Energy (DG ENER). This Commission department is responsible for the EU’s energy policy: secure, sustainable, and competitively priced energy for Europe.

Pierre Schellekens, a Swedish national, brings with him a sound knowledge of EU policies in the field of energy and climate change, his proven strategic planning capacity along with his robust communication and representation skills. His current position as Head of Unit for External Communications and Outreach in DG ENER and his previous engagement as Deputy Head of Cabinet of former Commissioner for Energy and Climate Action, Arias Cañete have allowed him to acquire a comprehensive and wide-ranging understanding of energy policy. He also managed the communication unit in the Directorate-General for Agriculture and Rural Development (DG AGRI), and one unit in the Directorate-General for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (DG MARE). He served for five years as Head of Representation in Stockholm and prior to that as Deputy Head of Cabinet for former Commissioner of Environment Stavros Dimas as well as Member of Cabinet for former Commissioner of Environment Margot Wallström. He joined the Commission in 1996 as Desk Officer for enlargement in the Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy (DG REGIO).
