Dan L. Vogler, Chief Executive Officer

headshot_danDan Vogler is CEO of UtiliCell Energy Storage Systems, a leader in Lithium Ion battery based energy storage technologies. Dan is a champion of renewable energy as our only solution to plan now for the passing of “peak oil” and our best effort to mitigate against green house gases and global warming. An experienced renewable power project developer, his prior company Falcon Green Energy, developed the largest rooftop solar PV power project in Texas at the time. Winnco Solar One, a 1/2 Megawatt solar array for CPS Energy in San Antonio, a rooftop solar project atop the Room Store in San Antonio, will produce 20 years of clean energy for the utility with a lucrative 27 cents / KW-Hour PPA. Dan attended the BSEE undergraduate program at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, were he went on to first work at University of California’s LANL Los Alamos National Laboratories, the world’s largest pure R&D facility. His tasks at LANL went from working on DOE power projects ranging from a Jemez Mountain Geothermal power project to research into a Laser controlled Nuclear Fusion reactions to generate power without radiation. Moving to Austin, Texas, Vogler has served as a guest lecturer at the University of Texas, speaking on engineering math for co-generation energy projects, while he has built several successful electronics companies, including Lintech, CHS, American Infoscience, 88net, The HDTV Group, and Falcon Green Energy,…. all to the point of profitability and in 4 out of 6 cases, on to a lucrative exit by acquisition. UtiliCell represents his latest efforts into the renewable energy business.
