TGRC is working with a client in utility-scale energy generation and capital infrastructure projects.
Clean Energy Business
Our client has played a pivotal role in clean energy for decades, delivering more than 100,000MW of nuclear and hydro generation capacity globally, as well as landmark renewable energy projects such as Ivanpah Solar and California Valley Solar Ranch. Today, the foundation of our clean energy strategy is developing and building core renewables projects (solar PV, wind, and battery storage), in addition to continuing our work in nuclear, hydro and newer technologies (e.g. hydrogen, carbon capture). To drive this strategy and help the company become a global leader in renewables, they are focusing development activity on utility-scale solar, onshore wind, battery storage and hybrid projects.
Joining their Clean Energy Development Team as a Project Development Manager is an opportunity to be an important member of an agile and fast-growing team that is leading a strategic and high growth business.
