CNE develops a range of mobile battery energy storage systems, which can store and deliver significant green power capacity to address inadequacy in power infrastructure. CNE said that it is fast-tracking its overseas expansion due to the huge demand for energy storage systems to add capacity and stability to the electrical grid and prevent emergencies like the loss of power in Texas earlier this year.

With a depth of international shipping and maritime expertise, Dumas joins CNE (USA) from Maritime Holdings, where he served as president and ceo. His career has spanned roles in corporate finance and business development.

Also joining CNE (USA) is Stuart Nelson, who will step up as ceo. He previously served as president of Cameron International’s flow control division and has extensive experience in leading manufacturing, sales and service of multiple product lines for the energy industry.
