Description

Highview Power is a small but growing global organisation who are leading the way towards a cleaner, more efficient and secure energy future.

Our proprietary long duration, zero emissions energy storage system utilises cryogenic technology and surplus electricity; at times of low demand/low cost, to make liquid air which can be stored and later converted back into energy and released into the grid, at times of high demand/high cost.

This award-winning technology has been dubbed as “the missing link” to making Renewable Green Energy sources a more resilient, reliable and cost-effective option when compared with traditional fossil fuel alternatives.

Highview Power value their employees and are committed to creating a positive, inspiring and inclusive working environment.

About the Role

The Lead Power System Analyst will join our fast-growing team within a small but growing international organisation leading the way towards a cleaner, more efficient and secure energy future. The Lead Power Systems Analyst will lead a team of analysts whilst developing and conducting computer modelling and analysis for transmission & distribution grids, system design studies, energy market studies, generation and load interconnection applications. The successful candidate will provide technical support to interconnection processes and be expected to review and sign off reports and studies from junior members of the team.

 

In return, Highview Power will provide the successful candidate with training and development opportunities, competitive salary and the chance to be a part of building a cleaner, greener, better future for everyone.
