Scale Microgrid Solutions Welcomes Chief Investment Officer

September 21, 2020: Scale Microgrid Solutions LLC (“Scale”) is excited to announce and welcome Julian Torres, CFA as Chief Investment Officer. This newly created leadership position will accelerate Scale’s capital deployment.

Julian is primarily responsible for guiding the investment strategy, structuring and deployment of Scale’s capital into distributed energy resources and energy infrastructure assets. Prior to joining Scale, Julian was most recently a Director in RBC Capital Markets’ Global Investment Banking division where he was responsible for over $1 billion of renewable energy tax equity investments.

Julian’s professional career spans over 15 years of increasingly senior roles at Credit Suisse, RLR Consultants and Kilowatt Financial. In total, Julian’s capital markets experience includes over $12 billion raised for various commercial and consumer assets across tax equity, cash equity, and debt structures including asset backed securitizations, non-recourse project financings and revolving credit facilities.

Scale’s project finance and asset acquisition capabilities target microgrids, distributed energy resources, and electrical infrastructure assets. Scale’s sponsorship, project management and development capabilities can help developers and partners de-risk and pull projects over the line, with an appetite to step in at any milestone along the development cycle; from early development, to engineering, to EPC, to operations and asset management.

Julian’s experience and expertise matched with our team of boots on the ground allows us to fully value these projects’ risks and opportunities. We’re thrilled to have him join the team.” - Ryan Goodman, CEO & Co-Founder.
