TenneT is growing fast to realize its strategic ambitions. We play a leading role in driving the energy transition. We are looking for a passionate Business Developer at our location Amsterdam who will contribute to this and that might be you?

Your contribution to TenneT

Equigy is a European joint Venture company deploying a blockchain based platform, to act as the gateway between TSO national markets for flexible power delivery (ancillary services markets) and Distributed Energy Resources (DER). Equigy is fully owned and funded by European TSO's with Terna, Swissgrid, TenneT Germany and TenneT Netherlands as founding fathers.

Until now, TSO national markets for flexible power delivery were in most cases accessible only to large B2B market players with large industrial power generation and power consumption assets such as power plants or industrial production lines. Since these ancillary markets present an opportunity of billions across Europe annually, unlocking these as a B2C market via the CBP allows DER owners to gain significant additional value, greatly enhancing the justification for the investment case for such DER devices. In turn, more participation of such devices unlocks a huge potential of additional flexibility for TSO's and DSO's for balancing and congestion management. Equigy’s CBP realizes this ambition, amongst others by creating an easy and standardized market access for aggregators to encourage more participation of DER in today’s markets.

As Business developer you perform a pivotal role in the realization of business value for the participating Equigy consortium partners, thereby contributing to the energy transition. You are responsible for creating, extending and maintaining relationships with relevant market parties and potential new TSO’s. You create new concepts, contribute to marketing and communication initiatives. Your focus is on extending Equigy’s business network, working together with CEO, CTO, marketing & communication officer and business consultants. In Equigy, you will be part of a small and international team that works together across countries on different TSO and Equigy projects, in partnership with a large international IT supplier.
