The Inflation Reduction Act‘s $369 billion commitment to climate change mitigation and energy security was a much-needed boost for both the US renewables sector and the wider economy.
Tax credits for new solar projects have been extended, and one of the Act’s most important strands has been the introduction of the Investment Tax Credit for standalone energy storage systems, which is being credited with facilitating the rollout of energy storage projects in new regions while boosting deployment in established markets like California, New England, New York and Texas.
This wave of new projects means that development specialists are in high demand, and we’re working with two established players in the US solar and storage industry to fill a number of key vacancies in their development functions. Alongside a European renewables platform operating over 10GW of projects across Europe, the US and Latin America, we’re looking for:
- A Development Manager, Environmental and Permitting, responsible for procuring and managing early-stage site environmental due diligence.
- A Development Manager, Energy Storage, to oversee the full site development lifecycle and permitting processes for standalone energy storage projects.
- A Development Analyst who will support the team’s activities with market entry analysis, and liaise with developers to help deliver projects on time.
- A Development Associate, to assist in activities like tracking development status, project scheduling management, and maintaining budgets.
All of these roles are based remotely in the US with regular travel required between the company’s head office in the South-East and projects taking place throughout the US.
We’re also working with a US-based developer of utility-scale projects to deliver a Development Manager (East Coast). This role will drive the development of multi-GW solar, wind and energy storage projects in New York, from site identification through to the construction phase. At least four years’ experience developing renewables projects is required for this hybrid position, located between the company’s Houston, TX head office and projects located in New York.
Connect with our US Solar and Storage market expert Monique Telles if you’re interested in any of these roles, or if you’d like to discuss what’s new and upcoming in this exciting market.
