Tätigkeitsbereich

As part of the German Energy Solutions Initiative of the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Action, the Project Development Programme (PDP) promotes climatefriendly energy solutions in over 18 partner countries. It develops implementable renewable energy projects, especially solar photovoltaic (PV), by identifying local companies, assessing their energy demand, and proposing a business case. Once the local companies are convinced to invest in the project, an introduction to potential German suppliers is made.After analysing the market dynamics and the challenges, PDP together with other GIZ projects and the German Chambers of Commerce Worldwide Network (AHK), develops appropriate solutions for developing the markets, promoting partnerships between German and local companies, and advancing specific renewables projects. 'Made in Germany' technologies and know-how of climate-friendly energy supply are in demand worldwide. Along with governments, more and more companies are becoming aware of the importance of renewable energy sources and energy efficiency to reduce dependence on fossil resources. It also plays a vital role in mitigating climate change and helps to reduce costs, thus increasing their competitiveness.The support is primarily aimed at German small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and helps prepare, explore, enter, and secure new business opportunities in the developing markets.The support strategy of the German Energy Solutions Initiative is the result of continuous discussion and coordination with the German industry. Direct up-to-date information from the developing markets forms the basis for the annual review process

Ihre Aufgaben

  • Supporting the project team in the preparation of measures in the partner countries with both organisational and content-related issues.
  • Research and analysis of technical data
  • Research on technical topics (PV, Power-to-x, Energy efficiency, process heat, Agro photovoltaics etc.) and developing technical materials
  • Simulation of energy systems (grid and off-grid PV systems with/without generator and/or battery, Green H2 production from electrolysers through PV etc.)
  • Research on country profiles
  • Support with general project management tasks for the team

Ihr Profil

  •  Completed  Bachelor's degree and/or Ongoing  Master's degree in the field of natural science, engineering or economics and First experience in the field of renewable energies and/or energy efficiency.
  • Possess a good overview and technical knowledge of the different renewable energy technologies (especially solar photovoltaics, Power-to-x, storage, heat, energy efficiency etc.) and the associated business models. Familiar with different political approaches to promote renewable energies.
  • Knowledge in the fields of energy efficiency, decentralized electrification, and industrial self-consumption are desirable. As the project works closely with German renewable energy and energy efficiency companies and the relevant industry associations, knowledge of these industry structures is an advantage.
  • Previous knowledge of energy simulation software, such as HOMER and/or PVSyst,is required. Additional technical calculation skills for renewable energy production, consumption and storage are highly desirable
  • Very good office skills (Excel, Word, Power Point, Outlook).
  • Prior experience in the field of financial modelling of renewable energy projects is a distinct advantage.
  • Proficient in English, German (C1 level) is not strictly required but advantageous; further language skills in French (C1 level) is also an advantage.

Hinweise

Please be informed that you are only allowed to apply for this internship, if you are currently enrolled as a student or graduated not longer than six months ago from the start of your internship.

 We pay a monthly stipend of €2.064,- (gross).

GIZ would like to increase the proportion of employees with disability, both in Germany and abroad. Applications from persons with disabilities are most welcome.
