The US’ Energy Storage Association announced on January 10 that it has made two senior appointments. Marissa Gillett (pictured) joins as vice president of external relations and Jason Burwen has been promoted to vice president of policy. He was previously director of policy.

Gillett was most recently the senior adviser to the chairman at the Maryland Public Service Commission, where she managed the investigation into the regulatory deployment barriers to electric vehicles and worked as a liaison with state agencies, utilities and trade organizations.

Burwen has been with the ESA since 2015 and is responsible for its policy advocacy at the federal, state and Regional Transmission Organisation level. He has developed public policy frameworks and legislation including FERC’s pending rule on energy storage market participation, the introduction of federal legislation promoting storage deployment, Washington and New Mexico state policies requiring storage in planning, and Massachusetts’ decision to proceed with an energy storage deployment target.
