Project Scheduler



Durham, NC, USA
Posted on Thursday, May 4, 2023

The Project Controls scheduler will provide scheduling other project control functions for FlexGen’s portfolio of energy storage projects, including integration services; product supply; and engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) projects. Responsible for developing level three resource-loaded, critical path method project schedules.

Energy storage represents a multibillion-dollar market at the center of the energy transition. The integration of energy storage requires software and technological solutions that play a critical role in the adoption of renewables at scale—offsetting the intermittency and reliability challenges that renewable power generation creates for the grid. Since its founding in 2009, FlexGen has supported deployments of more than 3 GWh of energy storage systems across the U.S. and internationally for utility, independent power producers, and C&I customers. The Company’s proprietary software platform, HybridOS™ is the brains behind battery energy storage projects, unlocking the full functionality of energy storage and enabling owners to manage multiple sites from a single platform.

FlexGen is dedicated to providing best-in-class service and performance for its customers, seeking to ensure safety, reliability and resiliency in all operating environments. FlexGen supports the customer across the full journey of developing an energy storage project and leverages decades of engineering and software expertise to maximize value that its customers ultimately receive.

Backed by a world-class group of investors including: founding investors Jerry Miller and Mark Dreyfus, legacy investors GE Venture and Caterpillar Ventures, an initial equity investment by venture capital firm Altria Group, a Series B led by Apollo Global Management, and a Series C led by Swiss investment firm Vitol with participation from all existing investors, FlexGen is poised to grow substantially and quite rapidly.
