ABOUT GENERATE CAPITAL Generate Capital has emerged as a leader in the high-growth sustainable infrastructure market, having built a highly differentiated investment and operating platform with a track record of strong risk-adjusted returns and significant, long-term institutional investor support.  Our investment platform represents the only one-stop shop for pioneers of the Resource Revolution.  Our infrastructure business wins by delivering the most affordable, reliable and sustainable resources to customers. The last several decades have ushered in a dramatic rise in demand for natural resources like energy, water, food, and materials. The “Resource Revolution” is about doing more with less of our natural resources, a fundamentally economic proposition proving that sustainability pays.  We believe that we can solve the world’s most pressing resource issues, not by reinventing the world, but by rebuilding it.  While some focus on finding new and revolutionary tools, we rebuild resource systems with the high-impact, economic, and proven solutions we have today.  As a result, customers, communities, innovators, developers, capital partners and the planet all win. Up until now, new energy asset finance (a $300B annual market) has been dominated by larger-scale projects that tend to attract traditional capital sources. Generate Capital, on the other hand, is focused on being a capital partner to pioneering project developers and solution providers that are typically overlooked by traditional financiers for a variety of reasons: asset size, underwriting complexity, project duration and perceived risk. As a long-term investor with truly permanent capital, Generate Capital is the only credible long-term partner for these pioneers, and the best infrastructure provider for these resource customers. With a $10B pipeline of projects, completed transactions totaling over $2.5B and a utility-like, pay as you go model (which we call Infrastructure-as-a-ServiceTM), Generate Capital has quickly established itself as a leader in the enormous markets of distributed energy, mobility, water and waste management.

This person can think outside the box to create both technical and financially beneficial solutions that benefit customers whose sustainable infrastructure needs we finance, as well as deliver profitable returns for Generate.  This person can work in a multifunctional role that combines technical understanding of sustainable infrastructure technologies, project finance, business development and project management aspects. Also, this person can manage a variety of internal and external stakeholders and projects simultaneously while providing the highest standards of service. What you will be doing at Generate Capital as an Account Executive on the Customer Solutions team: Driving new opportunity creation with both new and existing non-residential end customers through executive level communications. Researching and understanding sustainability initiatives, goals and targets of large scale organizations, both new and existing to Generate, who can benefit from our specific set of infrastructure services. Leveraging Generate’s existing investments, service offerings and partner capabilities to effectively and efficiently engage the right partner on a potential transaction with an end customer.

Experience in articulating the value proposition of structured project finance, energy service agreements, and fundamental understanding of investment securities, including project/sponsor equity, debt, tax equity, etc. as related to our service offerings. Ability to nimbly move between widely varying functions—business development, sales, marketing, technical to analytical to creative, strategy to tactical execution. Proven ability to work independently (without a large company’s support structure), and to garner respect from peers, partners and customers.

Investment Team Associate, UK Reporting to: Senior Managing Director, Head of Europe Location: London, although you may be performing the bulk of your work remotely during the next few months Position Mission: Generate Capital is hiring an Investment Associate to help investment execution and manage our growing portfolio of resource efficiency assets in Europe.  The mission of this role is to support the origination, due diligence, financial analysis and structuring of sustainable infrastructure investment programs that deliver attractive risk-adjusted returns in power, transport, water, waste and agriculture.

The last several decades have ushered in a dramatic rise in demand for natural resources like energy, water, food, and materials. The “Resource Revolution” is about doing more with less of our natural resources, a fundamentally economic proposition proving that sustainability pays.  We believe that we can solve the world’s most pressing resource issues, not by reinventing the world, but by rebuilding it.  While some focus on finding new and revolutionary tools, we rebuild resource systems with the high-impact, economic, and proven solutions we have today.  As a result, customers, communities, innovators, developers, capital partners and the planet all win.

Our investment platform represents the only one-stop shop for pioneers of the Resource Revolution. Our infrastructure business wins by delivering the most affordable, reliable and sustainable resources to customers. The last several decades have ushered in a dramatic rise in demand for natural resources like energy, water, food, and materials. The “Resource Revolution” is about doing more with less of our natural resources, a fundamentally economic proposition proving that sustainability pays. We believe that we can solve the world’s most pressing resource issues, not by reinventing the world, but by rebuilding it.
