Chris Holcomb

VP of Technology

Chris leads the technology group at 7X Energy. His team performs data analysis and builds software to support utility-scale solar development. He builds upon 7X’s proprietary geospatial and transmission software suite, Smart Power Maps, to support the team in development, production modeling, and interconnection review. He also assists in the identification and creation of new products for solar power purchasers. This includes SolarBlocks, which enables energy buyers to secure fixed blocks of solar energy.

Before joining 7X Energy, Chris co-founded the DOE SunShot Award-winning company that conceived Smart Power Maps. Previously, Chris led data analysis for the world's most granular solar energy and EV charging data-set. He also developed tools for tracking environmental enforcement actions, cleantech patents, and energy efficiency rebates.

Chris earned a Dual Masters in Energy and Earth Resources and Public Policy at the University of Texas and holds a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from Texas A&M.

When not developing tools to build upon solar's success, you may find Chris swimming in Barton Springs or swing dancing, but likely not at the same time.
