"Peter Muhoro is the inaugural recipient this year for his dedication to initiating, supporting and integrating programs for diversity and inclusion both within and outside of the energy industry."
The ESA is a national trade association dedicated to energy storage, working toward a more resilient, sustainable and affordable electricity grid.

In celebrating award winners this year, the association also noted: "This year’s class of winners includes trailblazers from all sectors of the industry who have dedicated their careers to advancing the adoption of energy storage and accelerating the resiliency and reliability of the power grid."
