Your future plans
Climate change is one of the biggest environmental challenges all around the globe and is likely to make severe weather events more extreme, frequent and costly. At RWE the requirement for more accurate analysis into this topic is increasing as we try to understand how these events will change over time and will impact global power markets, particularly as we see a transition towards increased renewable energy production i.e. wind, solar and hydro.
Our meteorological team is now looking for a new team member who supports to analyse and assess the risk of future weather patterns on the demand and supply of power across various global power markets and across various parts of the business i.e. Corporate strategy, European gas, Continental Power, coal and Asian-Pacific.
