As vice president of development, Dan Venuti joined PivotGen (formerly Pivot Power Management), a renewable energy development company. He will lead the development of the company’s repowering vertical.
Venuti was previously a director at NextEra Energy with responsibilities that included origination and early-stage developments. He held several leadership positions at NextEra Energy Resources and Florida Power and Light earlier in his career. His focus was on commercial origination and multitechnology renewable development. Venuti was previously employed by ExxonMobil in various finance, strategy, and development roles. He has led teams responsible in the development and origination over 3 GW wind and solar projects, including 1.6GW of wind powerings. This team deployed approximately $3 billion of capital across multiple markets.
“Following the recent launch of our repowering partnership, we are excited to welcome Dan to drive this key area of our business,” says Tim Rosenzweig, PivotGen’s CEO.
PivotGen recently announced a partnership with the Ayala Corp. and UPC Solar & Wind Investments LLC to acquire U.S. wind projects with the purpose of extending the lives of those projects through repowering.
“I’m really excited about the opportunities ahead of us at PivotGen. With a strong financial commitment and a sound investment thesis, I expect great things lie ahead,” states Venuti. “The company’s commitment to a clean energy future through investments in existing asset infrastructure is appealing and unique in the space. I’m looking forward to help grow this important initiative.”
