Global Energy Service Provider takes on active role in defining US energy storage policy
CONCORD, NORTH CAROLINA – Alevo Group, the Energy Service Provider, has today joined the Leadership Circle of the Energy Storage Association (ESA). Through the ESA, the company will play an active role in defining energy storage policy, in addition to its participation through Jeff Gates, ESA Vice Chair and Chairman elect, who was recently appointed Alevo’s Director of Sales and Field Operations.
Alevo joins an influential group of ten energy storage heavyweights in the Leadership Circle, including AES Energy Storage, NextEra Energy, General Electric Energy Storage and Oncor that work closely with the US government to define policy, accelerate growth in the sector, and make electricity smarter and more efficient. With more than 120 members, ESA represents the electricity supply chain from producers, distribution and storage to government and lawmakers with global partners.
“We are excited to have Alevo join as members of the ESA’s Leadership Circle. Their innovative energy storage systems demonstrate how storage is enabling the energy grid of the future.” Said Matt Roberts, Executive Director, ESA.
“The way we generate and consume electricity is rapidly changing, and innovative companies like Alevo are poised to capitalize on the growing demand for dynamic, reliable energy storage technology. We are thrilled to have them as leaders within the ESA, helping to create fair and competitive markets for storage systems.” Added Roberts.
“By joining the Leadership Circle of the ESA, Alevo will play an important role in informing and advising US energy policy,” said Jostein Eikeland, Chairman and CEO of Alevo. “The ESA is a powerful voice and indispensable resource that promotes the adoption of competitive and reliable energy storage systems, and I have no doubt it will play in essential role in modernizing how the world’s energy is managed in the coming years.”
