Buffalo, NY – Stark Tech, a leader in facility and energy optimization, has recently expanded its board of directors. Included in those additions is John Powers, President and co-founder of CleanCapital.
He joins the board to bring outside expertise and leadership in clean-tech. Stark recently added three new companies to its portfolio to expand offerings as a clean-tech provider.
Jon will help guide the board in decisions that elevate the solutions and capabilities to the markets Stark serves, which now include renewable natural gas, battery energy storage, and turnkey renewable development, focused on, but not limited to, solar and biogas solutions.
Jon is a clean energy and national security expert committed to making clean energy accessible to everyone. He currently leads the business development and marketing divisions for CleanCapital. Prior to that, he led public sector business development at Bloom Energy. His passion for clean energy stems from his time serving with the U.S. Army in Iraq, where he learned how vital clean energy is to protecting America’s national security. He helped to revolutionize the U.S. Army’s energy program, first as Special Adviser for Energy to the Assistant Secretary of the Army and later as Director of Outreach for the Army’s Energy Initiatives Task Force. In 2012, Jon was appointed to the post of Federal Chief Sustainability Officer by President Obama.
“We are thrilled to bring Jon to the board of directors. His talent and expertise will be vital to the future growth of Stark Tech,” said Tim Geiger, President of Stark Tech. “In order for Stark Tech to continue to grow and service our customers’ needs we need to continue to be nimble, bold and gritty, adding capabilities based on market trends and customer needs.”
The company will continue to offer turnkey solutions to the building services industry, but has added new capabilities in response to new regulatory guidelines and government incentives pushing renewable integration. Stark Tech implements solutions that help stabilize the power grid, so the lights “stay on” when the power goes out.
