Solar energy specialist Entech Solar has appointed GridPoint CEO Peter L. Corsell to its board of directors.

"We are delighted to have Peter Corsell join Entech Solar. In addition to being a successful entrepreneur, he is a true visionary in the clean technology industry,” said Frank Smith, Entech Solar CEO.

Corsell is CEO and founder of GridPoint, Inc., a leading smart grid company whose software platform benefits electric utilities, consumers and the environment. He chairs the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council on Alternative Energies and serves on a number of boards and committees, including Newsweek’s Global Environment and Leadership Advisory Committee, Xcel Energy’s Smart Grid Advisory Board, the Environmental Media Association’s Corporate Board and the board of directors of Standard Renewable Energy.

Corsell’s appointment follows several changes to the board announced earlier this year, including David Gelbaum’s appointment as chairman, Joseph Bartlett’s appointment to the board, and the resignation of former board members Hong Hou, Reuben Richards and Quentin Kelly.

Entech Solar designs, manufactures and installs systems that provide both electricity and thermal energy for commercial and industrial applications. Entech uses its proprietary concentrating photovoltaic and thermal (CPVT) technology.
