Website King & Sykes

King & Sykes is a values driven staffing firm founded to partner with investment banks, private equity & alternative asset investors who are at the forefront of sustainable investing, and their portfolio of companies.

We are currently hiring for a Director-level professional to lead the development of ~3000MW of solar and battery storage projects for a private equity backed asset management platform.

The successful candidate will be responsible for the project development team and execution resource planning, execution plans, schedules, budgets, studies, value planning and presentations that provide a clear understanding regarding renewable and BESS market conditions, project pursuit structuring and execution requirements for brownfield redevelopment sites. You will lead the renewable energy and energy storage project development execution and implementation strategy.

Our client is a brownfield renewable redevelopment company who focus on leveraging existing thermal assets to provide firm/dispatchable power while adding solar/storage to help meet emissions targets (effectively lowering the relative emissions intensity of the thermal plant) which makes a ton of sense in this new era of needing to balance load growth, reliability, affordability, and sustainability. Doing so also helps to avoid many of the pitfalls of greenfield development, including interconnection timelines/costs and community opposition.

They are a small team (~20ish people) with a development team of 5 people, who need shepherding by an experienced development leader. The ideal candidate would also have extensive PPA / Origination / Power Marketing experience. They work in the office 3-4 days per week so would need someone who could relocate within commuting distance of Lake Tahoe. The company will reimburse expenses associated with relocation.

The expected annual base salary range for this position is $250,000 to $300,000. The compensation and benefits package includes variable compensation in the form of a year-end bonus (20%-30%) and participation in the firms equity programme.



  • At least 15 years’ of success in the development of renewable energy and energy storage projects.
  • PPA / Origination / Power Marketing experience
