Director, Energy Markets

Peak Power

Toronto, Ontario, Canada Remote

Full time


Nov 19

Let’s make Power Plants Obsolete.  

The current, centralized electricity system is not sustainable. Between the climate crisis, state-wide blackouts, aging infrastructure, and rising costs, the system needs a huge overhaul. The demand for electricity is high – and getting higher – and big power plants aren't meeting our needs. We say it's time to disrupt and decentralize.

At Peak Power, we're energy nerds that develop software for the real estate sector. Our tech turns commercial buildings and industrial facilities into hubs in a new, decentralized electricity system. This means cleaner, more reliable, and more affordable electricity. We’re powering the clean energy revolution.

Peak Power has developed a comprehensive software platform that alleviates strain on the electricity grid and drives value to owners of clean energy assets, buildings, and electric vehicles (EVs) through electricity markets.

The Opportunity 

We are seeking a full-time Director of Energy Markets at Peak Power Inc. You will be responsible for researching, understanding, and synthesizing insights on trends driving demand for energy storage and other Distributed Energy Resources across Peak Power’s target markets, which are currently IESO, NYISO, ISO-NE, and CAISO.
