Nexamp, a national leader in renewable energy generation and energy storage, is accelerating the growth of its energy storage portfolio with the addition of Mark Frigo as Vice President of Energy Storage. Frigo brings deep industry experience in developing and implementing utility scale and commercial energy storage projects. As energy storage plays an increasingly critical role in improving grid reliability, integrating renewable generation, and bringing savings to large commercial customers with behind-the-meter applications, Nexamp is investing more resources in designing, building and operating energy storage systems across the country.

In his most recent role as Vice President and Head of Energy Storage in North America for RWE, a large investor-owned utility with a heavy future focus on renewables and energy storage, Frigo oversaw the development of numerous large storage projects. At Nexamp, he will focus on growing the Energy Storage team while identifying new business opportunities in Nexamp’s own generation portfolio and in third-party projects, both standalone and paired with solar.

“As Nexamp leads customers toward a decarbonized future, energy storage will be an important pillar of our business,” noted Chris Clark, Senior Vice President of Business Development, Nexamp. “Finding the right leader with real-world experience in this evolving area was critical. Mark comes to Nexamp with more than two decades of experience in the energy field and as an energy expert who has testified before Congress on the role of energy storage in the nation’s electricity system. He’ll be instrumental in helping us expand our energy storage footprint.”

Frigo was lead on RWE’s successful initiative that established its first energy storage facility in Arizona, launching the company’s efforts to bring reliable and efficient storage solutions to that region. His team subsequently built two additional energy storage projects in Texas, and helped lay the groundwork for large solar and storage projects. He also led other critical functions within RWE in North America, including the Energy Marketing, Market Operations & Analysis, and Risk & Investment groups.

“I’m excited to be joining Nexamp and look forward to continuing the momentum we have in energy storage, establishing new relationships and bringing storage to new applications,” Frigo said. “This is a pivotal time in the market, as utilities, commercial customers and others begin to understand the many benefits of energy storage. Nexamp is well positioned to be a national leader in this space.”
