For our office in Madrid we are currently looking for an

Origination Support Intern (m/f/d)

In Iberia Statkraft has, since 2018, been an active trader of power, 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:

Within Statkraft’s Southern European Trading & Origination department, the Trading & Origination mandate covers position taking in standard and non-standard products across the Spanish and Portuguese markets in Europe, involving mostly Long Term trading. The team managing this portfolio exists of experts on power and fuels.

The energy landscape is changing rapidly and so is our business. Our experienced and international team continuously improves the optimization tools, forecasts and trading strategies using data science techniques: data mining and visualization, developing hypotheses, testing statistical models in order to develop own view of the forward market prices which ultimately lead into signing LT Power Purchase Agreements (PPA) with RES Developers and Retailers . All this happens in close collaboration with our traders and corporate strategy teams. New business opportunities arise frequently and need to be valued and eventually operationalized. The execution and contract management of these PPAs requires a close follow up and attention to ensure that the billing/settlement processes and performance of the contract is monitored and controlled.
