  • Closely coordinate with our world class research service in Europe to understand current research themes that will resonate with consulting clients interested in power procurement, risk management, and power supply decarbonization. Liaise with the Energy Transition and S&P Global Sustainability-1 teams to offer integrated procurement/climate solutions;
  • Work within the Power Consulting team to identify and focus on consulting engagements that build capabilities, qualifications, brand, and interest internally with the team;
  • Build consensus across groups with competing priorities within the project team;
  • Efficiently review analysis and modelling efforts done by other Teams or project team members and provide feedback for improvement as it relates to industry power procurement processes and buying decisions;
  • Understand when learnings in consulting projects are relevant for the European power research service;
  • Support positioning S&P Global and our team as the go-to consultancy for power, energy transition and key transactional projects in the region;
  • Some travel is required on average around 20% of the time (but could occasionally be more).

  • 6-8 years of experience, preferably in consulting and necessarily in industry (e.g., tech, heavy industry, retail), with several years of experience buying power, managing procurements risks, and contributing to company decarbonization strategies/scope 2 emissions reductions;
  • The candidate should be able to demonstrate expertise in the power and renewables industry;
