Edison-based Eos Energy Enterprises appointed a veteran engineer as its new chief technology officer, the company said in a news release.
Carlos Restrepo will oversee the company’s proprietary technology and its alignment with overall business goals, Eos said.
“Carlos will be instrumental to the development of our technology, as demand for energy storage continues to grow and new applications are identified,” CEO Joe Mastrangelo said. “We are confident that his versatile engineering background, business acumen and energy experience will position him to be a key leader within our company and the industry more broadly.”
Restrepo is a 20-year veteran of the energy industry who holds more than 30 patents involving electrical engineering innovations, Eos said. He has served on the board of directors for multiple organizations, including the Georgia Solar Energy Association and Smart Electric Power Alliance.
“I look forward to working with the Eos team to harness the power of the company’s breakthrough technology and accelerate the product roadmap to meet the strong market demand,” Restrepo said. “As the world shifts to renewables, long-duration clean energy storage will play a critical role, and Eos is incredibly well-positioned to serve this growing market.”
