About Trailstone

Trailstone is a global energy and technology company, operating at the intersection of renewable and conventional power. We trade energy in global markets, and we provide a best-in-class service to manage the inherent intermittency of renewable power generation across the short, medium and long term.

As an energy trader, we buy and sell electricity and gas which is physically delivered on the grids, and we leverage our physical market knowledge to trade financial commodities.

As a provider of renewable energy management services, we take on the complexity of managing renewable power across different countries so that our customers can focus on their core mission of investment and growth. Trailstone offers an efficient, fully automated front-to-back renewable power management platform underpinned by our long-standing market experience, proprietary technology, data analytics and meteorology.

 

Role Profile

Trailstone is looking for candidates with a deep contact book with corporates throughout Europe, in order to build a business around the increasing demand from corporates for renewable power to meet their ESG targets. In particular, the candidate should ideally have executed or be able to execute the following deal structures:

  • Transactions involving longer-term management of balancing risk from renewables where corporate offtakers and or renewable generators lack the relevant route-to market infrastructure.
  • Building up a pipeline of renewable PPAs (financial/physical) for corporate off-takers, and thereby leveraging Trailstone’s strong network of renewable generators in Europe.

We would ideally like this candidate to be based in our Berlin office, but are open to individuals who wish to be primarily located elsewhere in Europe.
