Voltus, Inc., the leading distributed energy resource (DER) technology company, announces the addition of Carey Albertine to its leadership team as Vice President of People and Culture, extending its industry leadership on diversity, equity, and inclusion.
“Voltus is the fastest growing DER platform in industry history, helping our customers and partners monetize and orchestrate thousands of megawatts of DERs across all nine North American markets,” explains Gregg Dixon, CEO. “This growth has only been possible through the efforts of our highly dedicated, diverse, and deeply mission-driven team of bright, gritty, and good Voltans. By design, the power of our technology platform is in its diversity, serving every wholesale power market and every DER type, from energy storage to demand response. By design, the diversity of Voltus’s culture drives business results. Carey will supercharge our efforts to attract and retain the most talented and diverse teammates needed to expand the reach of the Voltus platform.”
Prior to Voltus, Albertine was the Chief Experience Officer at Shift Thinking, where she was in charge of designing and delivering experiences that create the conditions for exponential growth for large organizations. In 2018, Albertine gave a Ted Talk on the power of storytelling at TedX UVA. She taught leadership and professional development in the Masters of the Environment program at the University of Colorado, which includes a Renewable and Sustainable Energy track.
