  • Review forward market price and volatility curves used by the Front Office for transaction and portfolio valuation.

  • Prepare risk issues that require approval of the Energy Risk Committee at committee meetings, maintain current and prior versions of the Policy, and facilitate the annual Policy review process.

  • Ensure that counterparty and contract information is recorded accurately in Clearway’s system of record in a timely manner.

  • Coordinate with the Director on reporting incidents of non-compliance including limit violations and policy violations.

What You'll Bring
