EDF Renewable Energy has hired a senior director with risk management experience from a rival developer.
Srinivas Alai joined from Pattern Energy Group this month, according to his LinkedIn profile. He will be handling valuation and analytics at EDF.
Alai had been with Pattern’s finance team for two years, before which he had worked at NRG Renew for three years across both project finance and risk management functions. He was a senior director at NRG when he left the company.
He has also worked in the past at Pacific Gas & Electric as director, market and transaction risk, and at Iberdrola Renewables in Portland, Ore., where he rose through the ranks over the course of nine years and worked on tax equity partnerships.
An EDF spokesperson in San Diego did not immediately respond to an inquiry about Alai’s new responsibilities and who he reports to.
