The power market analysis department (MEM) support several business units in Statkraft. We follow drivers and provide insights into relevant markets for Statkraft. Our core power markets are the Nordic and Continental markets, but we also provide modelling expertise for new markets for Statkraft. We are 23 highly qualified and dedicated power market analysts working in Oslo and Trondheim. We are now seeking creative and proactive co-workers with higher technical/economical degree to join our team. We encourage both recent graduates and experienced candidates to apply.  

Price forecasts are amongst our most important deliveries and are used as decision support in Statkraft’s physical and financial trading, as well as investment analyses and strategic priorities. 

We currently run four different market models. It is crucial for us to maintain and develop industry-leading capabilities and expertise within power market modelling. This entails being on top of digitalization and automation, and scripting is a central enabler. We continuously improve processes and tools, also in close collaboration with our highly competent IT department in Statkraft. 

We are certainly a quantitative environment, but it is equally important to interpret and communicate our analyses. For our customers, the real value lays in the qualitative assessment and interpretation of the forecast. 

Our deliveries are a product of teamwork. It is important that you are a team player, that you share your knowledge, show interest in the work of others and enjoy working closely with colleagues.
