The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) recently announced a restructure and expansion of its leadership team. Erin Duncan, a proven legislative strategist and advocate, has been named the organization’s new vice president of congressional affairs and Katherine Gensler has been named vice president of regulatory affairs.

Katherine Gensler has been promoted to the newly-created position of vice president of regulatory affairs. Gensler has worked for SEIA for eleven years, steering the association’s efforts on a wide range of energy, permitting and finance issues at the federal level. She also leads SEIA’s advocacy work in the Texas regulatory and legislative arenas.

“Over the last decade, our work at SEIA has turned the solar industry into one of fastest-growing industries in America,” Gensler said. “I am excited to lead SEIA’s efforts as we expand our engagement in key regulatory proceedings in Washington and across the country. This is an important time in solar’s growth and I’m looking forward to driving the industry’s success even further.”

“Katherine’s proven leadership and regulatory expertise will be instrumental as we bolster our engagement in RTO proceedings and with FERC,” Hopper said. “This restructuring sets us on a path to successfully fulfilling our strategic vision and achieving the incredible future that awaits solar energy and SEIA.”

Gensler’s promotion is effective immediately.
