Key Capture Energy Shares Next Steps

Earlier this month, Key Capture Energy’s Co-Founder and COO Dan Fitzgerald shared with the team that he is stepping down as COO to pursue other interests outside of the industry including returning time that he has borrowed from his family while building Key Capture Energy over the last six years. Dan has been vital to all of KCE’s growth and success, from mentoring our team members to advancing all aspects of project development, construction, commercialization, and operations. Together we have succeeded in building some of the first utility-scale energy storage projects in New York and Texas and secured a world-class investor in SK E&S. Dan has worked alongside management to initiate a COO search and will continue in his current role at KCE over the next month to ensure a smooth transition. 

Dan’s announcement has presented us the opportunity to think more critically on KCE’s organizational structure to be able to scale KCE to be the leading artificial intelligence (AI) led clean energy platform. 

To support this strategy, we are pleased to announce that Joel Turkheimer has been promoted to Executive Vice President of Market Development.  Joel joined Key Capture in 2019 and has exponentially grown our market operations team and capabilities, from the development of our wholesale market algorithms to leading the efforts to identify the best locations on the electric grid for batteries. He will now take on the additional roles of overseeing project and business development, underscoring how important we see market operations playing a role in our future. We will be announcing a new COO in the coming months.  

We are excited about the road ahead and are committed to transitioning us to the grid of tomorrow.
