Working at EDF:

EDF (Électricité de France) is a global, integrated energy company and the world’s largest electricity producer. With 140 GW of generation capacity across more than 30 countries, EDF generates over 650 TWh of electricity for 38 million customers, and 85% of that electricity has low or no carbon emissions. With 160,000 employees worldwide, EDF is active in the entire value chain of the electric industry, including R&D, project development, generation, trading, transmission, distribution, sales, and energy services. In the US, EDF’s operations include EDF Renewables North America, EDF Energy North America, EDF R&D, and several smaller business units. EDF R&D has 1,800 researchers and 8 labs, including three in France, EDF Innovation Lab in the US, and others globally. Their role is to provide R&D, innovation, and business development support to the EDF Group. This is done by creating partnerships and collaborations with leading research institutions and industries and the identification and development of innovative technologies and solutions.

EDF Innovation Lab (EDF IL)’s mission is twofold: first, to explore, analyze and research trends and disruptive technologies for EDF Group in North America, leveraging the innovation of Silicon Valley and building local partnerships; and second, to develop and test new markets, innovative businesses and services, to support EDF Group’s growth in decentralized, data-driven and low-carbon energy sectors.

Job description:

A focus in the Lab is on future energy markets (FEM). Energy markets in North America are evolving rapidly with the transition to a net-zero carbon electric grid and climate events imposing greater market risk. The EDF Innovation Lab energy market team builds models, tools, and develops analyses for use by EDF Business Units to inform future market movements and develop robust roadmaps. The mission of this initiative is to enable EDF BUs to ultimately make strategic decisions towards achieving net-zero carbon portfolios while mitigating market risk.

The position will support in refining the assumptions for the 2024 capacity expansion modelling study. Capacity expansion models (CAM) simulate, for various time horizons, a specific zone’s generation mix needed to satisfy the electricity demand. Inputs cover prices of technologies and fuels, technology performance and operational constraints, fuel supply constraints, changes in load shape and total demand, policy constraints. Such studies include long-term load forecasting, financial modelling, post-processing of the CAM’s outputs (capacity mix, hourly system dispatch, hourly market marginal cost signals).

This will be an exciting role for someone with a strong interest in energy markets dynamics, willing to learn more about the technical, economical, and regulatory constraints driving long-term system planning decisions and investments. Knowledge of basics in Energy Market Fundamentals is welcomed, not mandatory. The analyst will be a part of the EDF IL team and will have easy access to all the Lab resources including people to support her/his work.

Duties/Responsibilities:

Specific duties and responsibilities include, among others:

  • Support in refining the CAM’s inputs, including generation and storage cost and performance, inter-zonal transmission capacities and physical constraints, long-term commodity (natural gas, coal) prices
  • Analyze the Pacific Northwest/WECC/CAISO & ERCOT markets policies, renewable development, trends in load consumptions including impact of electrification (EV uptake, green hydrogen demand, building electrification, energy efficiency) and self-consumption.

Required Qualifications:

  • Bachelor degree (BA/BS) required – Economics/Engineering/Business
  • Ability to grasp new concepts quickly and efficiently, fueled by a strong interest in the energy space
  • Experience manipulating large datasets
  • Experience in Python and/or Matlab scripting languages preferred
  • Ability to manage and prioritize tasks, and work with a high level of autonomy
  • Strong written, interpersonal and communication skills
  • Ability to work in a multicultural environment.

Job Summary

EDF (Électricité de France) is a global, integrated energy company and the world’s largest producer of electricity. With 140 GW of generation capacity across more than 30 countries, EDF generates over 650 TWh of electricity for 38 million customers, and 85% of that electricity has low or no carbon emissions. With 171,000 employees worldwide, EDF is active in the entire value chain of the electric industry, including R&D, project development, generation, trading, transmission, distribution, sales, and energy services. In the US, EDF’s operations include EDF Renewables North America, EDF Energy North America, EDF R&D, and several smaller business units. EDF R&D has 1,800 researchers and 9 labs, including three in France, EDF Innovation Lab in the US, and others globally. Their role is to provide R&D, innovation, and business development support to the EDF Group. This is done by creating partnerships and collaborations with leading research institutions and industries and the identification and development of innovative technologies and solutions.

EDF IL is currently seeking a talented and highly motivated part-time team member to join the Net-Zero Carbon Solutions team.

In this role, you will explore the solutions for transitioning hard to abate sector of the economy away from fossil fuels.

The role mainly focuses on hydrogen, E-fuels, and CCUS (Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage) solutions which all play a critical role in decarbonizing various sectors of the economy.

Hydrogen can be produced from renewable sources through electrolysis, offering a clean energy carrier for sectors such as heavy industry, transportation, and heating. It can be used as a feedstock for industrial processes, a fuel for fuel cell vehicles, and a storage medium for renewable energy, thereby enabling the integration of intermittent renewables into the energy system.

E-fuels are synthetic fuels produced by using renewable electricity to convert carbon dioxide (CO2) and water into hydrocarbons. They can serve as drop-in replacements for conventional fossil fuels in sectors such as aviation, shipping, and heavy industry, where direct electrification may be challenging.

CCUS technologies capture CO2 emissions from industrial processes, power plants, and other point sources, preventing them from entering the atmosphere. Captured CO2 can be utilized in various ways, such as enhanced oil recovery, production of synthetic fuels, or chemical feedstock, providing economic incentives for carbon capture.

For each of these technologies the role will analyze the underlying regulation frameworks, trends, sector integrations, actors, and the role each technology can play in reaching climate objectives.

The intern will be a part of the EDF IL team and will have easy access to all the Lab resources to support their work.

Duties/Responsibilities

Specific duties and responsibilities include, among others:

  • Mapping of actors, technologies, regulatory frameworks.
  • Analysis of the strategic roadmaps.
  • Conduct analysis of companies, technology, and trends

Required Skills/Abilities

  • Ability to structure and deliver analyses with minimal supervision.
  • Ability to work in a multicultural environment.
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills

Education and Experience

  • Pursuing a degree (Undergraduate, Master, PhD) with sufficient experience or knowledge of the energy sector
  • Excellent writing and presentation skills.
  • Able to grasp new concepts quickly and efficiently.
