Summit Power has formed a new unit within the company – Summit Carbon Capture.

The company has hired Mr. Sasha Mackler as vice president of the new unit. Mr. Mackler was a founding member of the Bipartisan Policy Center’s Energy Project, which played a key role in drafting recent Federal energy laws.

In his new role, Mr. Mackler will help manage commercial and policy aspects of the company’s carbon capture initiatives. He will focus on carbon capture power projects and emerging technologies, as well as business opportunities for climate-friendly commercial uses of captured carbon such as enhanced oil production.

Summit is developing several CCS projects, most notably the Texas Clean Energy Project (TCEP), a gasification facility with 90% carbon capture that will produce electric power and fertilizer, as well as captured carbon dioxide.
