Duke Energy has named Regis Repko the company’s new senior vice president and chief fossil/hydro officer.
Repko succeeds Charlie Gates April 1. Gates announced his retirement earlier this month.
“Regis’ 30 years of experience in managing multiple generation sites, engineering, project leadership and governance will further enhance our existing generation expertise and position us for future success,” said Dhiaa Jamil, executive vice president and president of regulated generation and transmission.
Repko will be responsible for the operation of the company’s regulated fossil/hydro generation fleet in six states, including outage and maintenance services. He will help shape the company’s generation stragety as Duke rebalances its portfolio to reduce carbon emissions.
Repko previously served as senior vice president of nuclear operations, providing oversight for several Duke-operated nuclear plants. He joined the company in 1985 as a junior engineer at Oconee Nuclear Station.
Repko currently serves as chairperson of the Academy Council of the National Academy for Nuclear Training.
