Durham, N.C., March 3, 2021 – FlexGen, the largest independent energy storage technology company in the U.S., today announced new leadership with industry veterans Kelcy Pegler and Yann Brandt coming on as CEO and CFO.

“I’m thrilled to be joining FlexGen at such an important and exciting time. There are no more excuses or limitations to creating a more intelligent power grid. Energy storage is a critical part of today’s energy transition–and will create a cleaner and more resilient system,” said Kelcy Pegler, CEO of FlexGen.
