Our Energy Management Department is looking for an Energy Markets Manager - Nordics to join its European team, based in Stockholm or Helsinki.

As the renewable energy market evolves, Neoen assets are increasingly exposed to the electricity markets:

  • Because only part of the solar or wind assets are contracted through a long term PPA
  • Because the PPAs may induce a market exposure (minimum or maximum contracted volume, defined hourly curves…)
  • Because they can offer different services. For example, storage assets can be active on several frequency services or on the energy markets (intraday or balancing).

Managing this growing exposure to energy markets and supporting Neoen development with market expertise and modelling are the main missions of the Energy Management Department. Historically settled in Sydney, the Energy Management Department expended in Paris since end 2020 to manage our existing assets in Europe and Central America and support Neoen expansion in our different geographies.

As part of the Energy Management Europe team, directly reporting the Head of Energy Management Europe, the Energy Markets Manager will have the following responsibilities:

  • Support Neoen ambitious expansion plans and contribute to commercial development by bringing combination of market expertise and quantitative analysis:
    • Build up and share expertise about regulatory frameworks and market structures (Energy markets, Capacity markets, Reserve markets…) in our different geographies, with a strong focus on the Nordics area (Sweden and Finland)
    • Assess market fundamentals and trends, monitor regulatory evolutions and elaborate go-to-market strategies
    • Deliver long-term power markets analysis by leveraging external scenarios and models and developing internal ones
    • Build optimization and modeling tools (in collaboration with the Energy Management Department Quantitative Engineers) and/or deliver data-driven analysis to support development of new business models (stand-alone storage, solar + storage, non-vanilla PPA…)
    • Integrate quantitative observations, market knowledge and experience into business and strategic recommendations
    • Support contractual negotiations with Neoen customers led by the local Development teams (Nordics mainly)
    • In cooperation with the Finance team (and the Energy Management Department Quantitative Engineers as the case may be), model the value of innovative products (such as structured prices and options for instance) and analyze their potential impact on accounting and financial reporting)
  • Lead the market operations of our Nordics portfolio:
    • For our grid-scale batteries in Finland and Sweden:
    • Supervise and monitor bidding operations (reserves, wholesale, balancing...) and market performances of our grid-scale batteries
    • Improve bidding strategies and tools to adapt to market conditions and maximize revenues, in collaboration with the Energy Management Department Quantitatives Engineers
    • Optimize technical capabilities (SoC management, combination of services, maintenance planning...), in collaboration with our Asset Managers and our Technical Experts
    • For our generation portfolio:
    • Identify, analyze and quantify merchant risk, and propose hedging strategies N.B. Regular travelling will be required (mainly in Europe).
      Please mention the location you prefer in your application.
