Storage Developer / Originator
The Developer/Originator will manage all aspects of development of Hecate Grid’s development portfolio of utility scale battery storage projects from site acquisition through to Notice to Proceed for construction. The Development/Originator will use software tools and coordinate with the quantitative team to research and locate land opportunities; negotiate site control agreements with landowners; coordinate with team members and manage external contractors to permit projects and perform other development tasks as needed to develop large scale battery storage projects. In addition to site acquisition and project development, the Development/Originator will also lead responses to energy storage RFPs and bi-laterally originate and manage potential offtake and hedge opportunities.
The Development/Originator will travel frequently across the domestic United States, working with local stakeholders including landowners, local governments, economic development entities, permitting authorities, utilities, and others. Comfort with interacting with disparate groups and hearing different perspectives is essential. In some cases, the Development/Originator will be the primary point of contact between the project, the company, and the community. The ability to communicate professionally, respectfully, and effectively between the three is also essential. Additional responsibilities include monitoring energy storage regulation/policy, creating and maintaining battery project financial models and potential cross-training across asset management, fundamental market analysis and quantitative modelling.
Interested individuals who have experience with early stage energy storage development, familiarity with regulatory frameworks and a strong technical understanding of batteries are encouraged to apply.

Hecate Grid is a utility-scale electricity storage project developer, owner, and operator. It was founded by U.S. based renewable energy company Hecate Energy, and InfraRed Capital Partners, a UK based infrastructure fund. Grid storage is a rapidly growing component of the electric power grid, and as penetration of renewable energy generation continues to increase, grid-tied electricity storage will increasingly be used to balance intermittent resources like wind and solar power generation. Hecate Grid develops, owns, and operates a growing network of utility-scale electricity storage projects at key nodes in select electricity markets and is developing proprietary trading strategies and algorithms.
