Former MK and science minister Ophir Paz-Pines will become the new chairman of the board of GreenSun Energy, the company announced Thursday. Paz-Pines is currently in Cambridge Massachusetts as a Harvard fellow.
Paz-Pines was very active as the chair of the Knesset Internal Affairs and Environment Committee where he frequently lambasted those who were not so eager to improve their environmental practices.
GreenSun Energy will look to Paz-Pines to represent the company to investors both domestic and foreign. GreenSun's products include concentrated photovoltaic panels and materials suitable for building integrated photovoltaics (BIPV). The company was launched in Jerusalem in 2007 and is run by Amnon Leikovich and Eitan Shmueli.
