Summer project

Statkraft’s summer project represents an exciting challenge. You will get to work on important topics while getting to know Statkraft as a future employer.

Summer Project 2014:

Future development of energy systems: a case of battery storage

We are looking for eight students to participate in the Statkraft Summer Project 2014. The project is multi-disciplinary and is aimed at students who have finished at least three years of higher education. Participants will work in a self-driven project team where one is a student project manager and with supervision from Statkraft professionals.

Summer project will be hosted by Project and Business Development departments in Düsseldorf, Germany.

The duration of the project is approximately nine weeks, starting in mid-June. The participants will be paid according to a fixed wage for student internship positions in Statkraft in Germany. Application deadline was March 2 2014.

The project will focus on business opportunities for stationary battery systems. What will be the main markets in terms of regions and applications? How will technical, regulatory and environmental trends influence the demand for battery storages? In which parts of the value chain can Statkraft utilize its competitive advantages in the best possible way?
