069SC - Transmission Grid and Regulation Year in Industry Analyst Student

Location: Glasgow

Salary: £23,151

Hours: 37 Hours a week

Discipline: Grid and Regulation, candidates with a STEM or business background with interests in GB Transmission Network.


This is an exciting opportunity to join one of the world’s largest integrated utility companies and a world leader in wind energy. They’re building new solar, wind, battery, and green hydrogen infrastructure - ready for the increasing demand for more green, secure and affordable energy to help deliver a better future, quicker.

As part of this opportunity, you will be helping address Great Britain’s Transmission Network challenges, specifically network balancing and transmission charging. Current forecasts indicate a substantial increase over the coming years. The company’s Renewables has proposed a credible charging alternative to the existing methodology – Optimised Transmission Cost (OpTIC), which holds promise as a future solution for transmission charging in GB. This placement opportunity will allow for a deeper understanding of the fundamental aspects of transmission charging and contribute to future strategic reforms within Great Britain.



The Grid and Regulation Team within Company’s Renewables perform policy and operational functions for both onshore and offshore (UK and Ireland). They monitor and propose grid and regulatory policy developments across licenses and codes, assessing risk and opportunity to the business. This primarily includes charging and commercially related topics but also touches on technical and operational aspects. They are also the responsible repository function for all grid connection agreements, facilitating the business's link to network operators and the system operators (UK and Ireland). With respect to the contracts, they manage over £100m of securities and liabilities on behalf of the business. The Renewables team also sets ancillary service prices in the balancing mechanism and manage the technical compliance of our grid contracts.



Graduate, final year or penultimate year sandwich placement – would suit candidates with a STEM or business background with interests in GB Transmission Network. University-level knowledge of Grid Policy or Regulation across the UK would be desirable.


Activities and Responsibilities

During this year-long placement, you will be involved in project management for the company’s Renewable’s OpTIC proposal.

Additionally, you’ll assist the team’s Senior Grid & Regulation Analysts in evaluating other ongoing changes to the existing charging arrangements and preparing long-term charging forecasts for the business. All of which plays a critical role in informing the company’s future development pipeline of projects.
