  • Pamela Frank
    Pamela Frank
    CEO - ChargEVC

    Pamela Frank, Vice President of Gabel Associates, has more than 20 years of experience in sustainability issues and the renewable energy industry. A common thread in her career has been her involvement in “starting up” disruptive movements and markets – from her creation of GreenFaith, an innovative not-for-profit that inspires, educates and mobilizes people of diverse religious background for environmental leadership, to being part of the Executive Team of Sun Farm Network, a solar development company that sold some of the country’s first power purchase agreements for solar in the early 2000s.
    Continuing that theme at Gabel Associates, she supports the firm’s efforts related to the development of advanced technology, renewable energy, and energy efficiency projects. She also supports regulatory, policy, and analytical activities for these markets.
    Ms. Frank has served as a key stakeholder in the development of the solar energy market in New Jersey, which is considered one of the largest, most innovative markets in the nation. Since 2004, Ms. Frank has served on the state’s Renewable Energy Task Force, the policy body that has shaped solar development in the State. She worked closely with the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities, legislative leadership and the Governor’s Office for the successful passage of the Solar Advancement and Fair Competition Act of 2010, including building a diverse coalition of non-industry stakeholders to advance advocacy.
    Over the last two years, Ms. Frank has been part of negotiating teams in several jurisdictions in the mid-Atlantic that have won significant improvements to interconnection protocols that favor the growth of distributed generation.
    One of Ms. Frank’s greatest strengths is her ability to bring together leaders from diverse sectors to advance issues related to sustainability. In forging strategic relationships, she has created not-for profit and private sector partnerships to promote new markets for environmental products, with sensitivity to the roles, responsibilities and goals unique to each partner.
