  • Understand the fundamentals of power markets, power purchase agreements, green certificates and how energy policies and renewable energy economics can affect corporate renewable purchasing decisions
  • Understand how corporates make decisions on energy procurement, including not only sustainability concerns, but also those of costs and energy security
  • Build and maintain datasets which track corporate renewable energy procurement

What's the role

  • Together with other team members, identify topics of interest to clients, conduct research and report on the findings in a timely manner
  • Develop and implement market-driving products, data sets and analysis
  • Collaborate with a high degree of professionalism with colleagues and clients from different cultures and countries

  • Develop a network of contacts in the industry and promote/represent BNEF across a wide variety of senior stakeholders

  • Exceptional communication skills in English including: writing (for research reports), reading (to conduct research) and speaking (for presentations to clients or at conferences)
  • Confidence and accuracy conducting numerical analysis and a familiarity with data
  • Ability to think critically and develop thoughtful opinions by cutting through the noise of data, extracting key patterns, applying scepticism to conventional claims within the industry and asking insightful questions
  • Natural aptitude for graphically presenting data and writing clearly and concisely
  • Ability to quickly understand, distill and communicate complex topics to non-specialist audiences
  • Confidence in conducting research calls and communicating with senior industry contacts
