  • Driving bidding strategies in various auctions (e.g. Offshore wind Feed-in tariff auctions and other RES technologies etc.)
  • Understanding the changing regulatory framework and energy market in Japan and quantifying the effects on the various revenue streams e.g. the switch to the feed-in premium subsidy mechanism and the opportunities in the growing power exchange (JEPX) across all 10 regions
  • Supporting Strategy and Regulatory Affairs team to reflect current and future market and regulatory scenarios for long-term strategic planning
  • Supporting Asia Pacific (APAC) wide market analyses and commercial evaluation of new technology solutions such as Hydrogen and Battery Storage

  • Strong skills in managing a good relationship with business partners and other external stakeholders including leading asset specific commercialization negotiations
  • Strong Excel skills i.e. should be able to use functionalities at an expert level
  • The ability to communicate clearly and in a customer-oriented way, specifically the ability to structure and present complex information adequately to a (senior) management-level audience (both written and verbal)
