Eos Energy Storage has added two energy industry veterans to its executive team: Jeff Wiener, former director of global sales for energy storage at GE, joins as senior vice president of global sales, and Chris Gerlach, former vice president of finance at Solar Reserve, joins as chief financial officer.
According to Eos, Wiener spent 36 years in GE’s power segment, where he played roles in wind, thermal and hydro services.
“We’re incredibly excited to add these industry veterans to the team,” says Jim Hughes, Eos’ chairman of the board and former CEO of First Solar. “Their combined experience strengthens capabilities around product deployment, bankability and financing and will reinforce Eos’ position as the go-to supplier for safe, cost-effective energy storage.”
The company, which is located in Edison, N.J., and New York City, says it is preparing for the global expansion of its grid-scale energy storage solutions. Its core product – the Eos Aurora 1000│4000 – is a 1 MW/4 MWh DC battery system employing Eos’ aqueous, zinc-based Znyth technology. Eos also recently announced the company’s first South American deployment of its grid-scale Aurora system as part of a 5 MW hybrid solar and wind demonstration project developed by ENGIE in Brazil.
