The energy transition will move us towards a sustainable energy system. An exciting pathway that requires a lot of changes and therefore expertise. You can actively participate in this. The Business Development team is responsible for acquiring, developing and executing new projects, designed to accelerate innovations in the field of energy transition. We do this by developing knowledge and by stimulating investments in new energy technologies and applications. In this position your focus is on two main themes: Energy Ecosystems and Green Gas. Your work will mainly focus on Energy Eco Systems and in particular on North Sea Energy System, but you will also be involved in our other themes.

You will work on the North Sea Energy project. North Sea Energy is a public-private research consortium that investigates the North Sea’s potential for an integrated energy system. Besides research, the project consortium also initiates pilots and projects to test and demonstrate innovative concepts in practice. An example of this is the PosHYdon project. You work together with teammates, colleagues from another team and with our partners (knowledge institutions, governments and companies). In order to make a good contribution, you are enthusiastic about the challenges that the broad field of energy transition poses to us and you have received targeted training to that end. If you have specific affinity with offshore wind or transmission technology, that is certainly an advantage for this position.

Job content

You will work in a team with a lot of expertise and drive and you work with our partners: often very interesting companies and knowledge institutions. Together we tackle the challenges and you are in the middle of it.
  • If you believe that the North Sea may be at the heart of the energy transition, you will have the opportunity to participate in it and to develop yourself.
