Scale Microgrids Welcomes Nuno Escaja Gonçalves as Chief Financial Officer

Scale Microgrids ("Scale"), the leading vertically-integrated distributed energy platform and financing provider, is excited to announce the hiring of Nuno Escaja Gonçalves as its new Chief Financial Officer (CFO). Nuno's decades of senior-level experience at the intersection of finance and renewable energy, including distributed energy, will be a tremendous asset for driving the company's continued growth.

Nuno Escaja Gonçalves joins Scale from EDP Renewables North America ("EDPR NA"), where he most recently served as the CFO of their Distributed Generation division and sat on the Management Committee.

Previously, Nuno had worked for nearly a decade as the Director of Financial Planning & Control for EDPR NA, where he prepared budgets and monthly reporting, controlled the financial execution of new utility-scale wind and solar projects, and provided financial estimates for the development, technical, nd investment analysis teams. He also took on added responsibilities as the Director of Portfolio Management, managing relationships with EDPR NA tax equity and cash equity investors as well as project finance counterparties.

Nuno's career in energy began with the EDP Group in Portugal over two decades ago, as the Deputy Head of Finance responsible for the treasury of the Group and for the pension fund. He also worked in the capital markets team having participated in the issuance of over $10 billion in bonds, loans, and credit facilities.

"We're thrilled to have someone as talented as Nuno joining the team," said Scale's Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder Ryan Goodman.
