Position: North American Desk Head
Department: Operations
Job Type: Full Time / Permanent / Manager
Location: Toronto, ON

Learn more >>

Northland Power Inc. (“Northland”) is an independent power producer dedicated to developing, building, owning and operating clean and green power projects. Northland is focused on the development of sustainable power generation. Our facilities produce electricity from clean-burning natural gas and renewable resources such as wind, solar and biomass.

Established in 1987, Northland was one of Canada's first independent power producers. Today, Northland trades on the Toronto Stock Exchange, earns approximately $1 Billion per year, has over $10.0 Billion in assets, and almost 1,000 employees working across the organization.

Northland has achieved a remarkable growth trajectory, currently operating 20+ facilities in Canada and Western Europe with almost 3GW in operation. Northland is positioned for continued growth in the years to come, pursuing and developing projects in North America, Europe, Mexico, Northeast Asia, Japan, South Korea and Latin America.

Position Summary:

This is a new position within Northland Power. The Desk Head will run all active trading operations and provide marketing support to Regional Development Offices (RDO) as required in order to design competitive merchant and contracted revenue strategies which underpin and effectively balance risk with optimization potential.

While Northland operates a modest energy marketing business located in Toronto, a significant part of our global development strategy is based on developing new power projects around structured origination, including the management of merchant exposure and commercial and industrial (C&I) off-take. Newly emerging off-take contract structures can vary depending upon the needs of the customer and the markets in which they operate their business. The Desk Head will need to develop a framework for quantifying and managing contract structures which reference market pricing and may have open market exposures related to various products including but not limited to: energy and capacity pricing, Renewable Energy Credits (REC) pricing, gas pricing, nodal basis pricing, FX, etc. Northland is looking for a senior marketing professional who will provide the guidance required to support this initiative.

Our philosophy is to de-risk the merchant and variable revenue streams related to our projects using back to back transactions where possible and where not possible to devise a short and long-term hedge and risk mitigation strategy designed to help stabilize and optimize the long-term profitability and cash flow of our development projects and to ensure that Northland can execute upon these strategies after projects transition to operations.

We are looking for an experienced energy marketing leader who has significant knowledge of energy related products and contract structures in the Americas based upon experience in trading and marketing operations, origination of transactions with C&I customers, contracting with other third-party marketers and financial institutions. The successful candidate will leverage their experience working with a broader Northland Team including our Developers, Originators , Commercial Asset Managers, Finance, M&A, and legal teams to support project economics, financing capability and internal approvals of projects during the development phase. Northland will continue to evolve electricity marketing capability, execution strategy and the required resources (in-house or contracted) to manage the otherwise merchant exposure of these development projects after they are declared commercial.

The Desk Head and the broader team listed above will ensure Northland realizes its new development project PPA revenue forecasts while also providing the support required to secure suitable post PPA revenue streams and de-risk merchant exposures which exist in the post PPA term of an operating project (business).
