Grid Engineer- Up to £45,000 DOE- Reading/ Hybrid model

Are you working with power systems studies and modelling on a regular basis? Ready for a move into a more senior role, tackling one of the largest problems in renewables? Wanting a fast developing, leading company to support this growth?

Grid Engineer is sought by one of the leading developers, EPC, and asset operator in the UK. They own utility scale solar and storage assets, with a combined pipeline of over 700MW and over 2.5GW in various stages of planning. They have recently begun the next stage of expansion into European markets, so there has never been a more exiting time to join the team. They're extremely supportive, priding themselves on the opportunities on offer.

The role:
You'd be working as part of the technical team, studying the network for new connection agreements and grid connection studies. You'd be working closely with DNOs and TSOs for these agreements. You'd also be a key internal stakeholder, working closely with the EPC and development team. The pipeline is growing at a rapid pace, so plenty of work to get started on and exciting projects to get stuck into.

What we are looking for:
-Understanding of grid policies and standards needed for connection agreements.
-A background and understanding in power systems studies and modelling, as well as grid connection studies.
-Experience with DNOs, maintaining relations and managing processes.
-Experience with solar, battery storage and hybrid systems.
