In Germany Statkraft has, since 1999, been an active trader of power, gas, renewable and emission certificates and a broad range of structured products. We are one of the leading players and service providers in managing distributed energy generation.
What we do:
Providing power efficiently and reliably is among the core challenges in times of increasing solar and wind energy production. Here, our intraday trading team in Düsseldorf is making a vital and exciting contribution. We are active on all relevant short-term markets, being the market leader in integrating renewables in Germany and the UK. In total, Statkraft manages over 15.000 MW of renewable capacity across Europe. As a result, we contribute significantly to the successful integration of renewable energy into the overall energy landscape.

- Digitalization: Statkraft makes use of algorithmic trading and virtual power plant solutions that automatically balance renewables portfolios, trade and steer asset flexibility in real-time and run proprietary trading activities. These algorithms make millions of decisions per day, send orders to the exchange and steer the physical assets. You are a central part of this trading environment, backed up by our data science infrastructure and monitoring solutions, which you continuously develop and interact with.
Intraday power trading is continuous: 365 days a year, 24/7. You will be part of a shift team and expected to work occasional night and weekend shifts.
