February 24, 2022, Toronto, ON and Philadelphia, PA – EnerTech Capital is pleased to announce that Michael Walker has joined our Advisory Board as an Executive in Residence. Mike’s extensive operating, financial, legal, and risk management experience will provide EnerTech with access to valuable insights in the power industry.
Mike has over 30 years’ experience in the energy industry with a strong focus on the leadership and execution of strategic undertakings supporting both corporate and regulatory priorities. Mike spent the last 12 years in various senior leadership roles at the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) and was instrumental in overseeing the development and execution of key corporate functions and strategic initiatives. Prior to joining NERC, Mike served in several senior leadership positions at National Grid USA and KeySpan Corporation, including oversight of legal affairs of the corporation’s competitive business segment, participation in the Millennium Pipeline project, and $2B divestiture of the Ravenswood generating station. Earlier in his career Mike led the energy practice at several law firms, representing clients in energy project development and financing, acquisitions, divestitures, regulatory matters, and complex commercial transactions across a wide range of technologies and fuel sources.
“Mike brings a vast range of skills that will be extremely helpful to EnerTech, our portfolio companies and our strategic initiatives. As a lawyer, Mike always has his eye on the end goals while finding creative and efficient solutions to hurdles that may derail others. But perhaps more importantly for us, Mike is as much of a businessman and project developer as he is a lawyer. With the industry facing a precedent-setting amount of infrastructure development to support zero emission vehicles Mike’s knowledge, skills, passion, professional network, and enthusiasm is a very welcome accretive resource. He has been and will continue to support our work at the California Mobility Center.” said Scott Ungerer, Founder and Managing Director.
“Mike’s vast network of contacts, experience, and knowledge of the utility grid network will be extremely valuable to us as we continue to expand our Innovation Platform. His relationships in Washington with groups like the Department of Energy (DOE), North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC), and other Federal agencies will add significant value and insight to our current focus on mobility grid integration, cyber security, and our broader energy innovation focus areas.” said Wally Hunter, Managing Director, EnerTech Capital.
"I’ve always admired the firm’s vision and insight regarding the role of technology and innovation in reshaping the electric industry. I look forward to drawing on my experience and skills to support the EnerTech team and their clients, especially in structuring and advancing commercial arrangements supporting mobility and distributed energy resources, technology and services innovation, and electric system security and reliability.” said Mike Walker.
