Highview Power, the global leader in long-duration energy storage solutions, is pleased to announce that President and CEO Javier Cavada has been named a winner in CEO Today magazine's 2019 Europe Awards. According to the magazine, the awards identify the most progressive, forward-thinking and ambitious company leaders in business today.
"I'm thrilled to have been named a winner in this year's CEO Today Europe Awards," said Cavada. "There is not a successful business leader out there that achieves company goals on their own.

He led Wärtsilä's global energy business and helped drive a deep transformation toward becoming the leading renewables system integrator.
