Internship (4-6 months) – European Hydrogen

Are you looking to kickstart your career in the energy industry? Do you want to play an active role in our business by conducting analysis, creating insights, and communicating these to our clients and the wider market?

If yes, then come join us to contribute to Aurora’s mission of providing strategic analysis and conveying insights on the global energy transition to create a cleaner, more efficient energy system.

Position

You would join our team full-time for 4 to 6 months starting as soon as possible. We are looking for someone who has a strong interest in clean hydrogen, energy, renewables, and data analytics. You will work in a dynamic, fast thinking and supportive environment. The position suits recent graduates, or current Masters or PhD students who want to complete an industry placement.

The scope of this role will focus on European Hydrogen markets. Low carbon hydrogen is quickly gaining interest from policymakers and industry as a vehicle to decarbonise hard to abate sectors such as industry, transportation, and heating. There are also huge synergies between hydrogen and power markets, with hydrogen potentially playing a role in balancing renewable generation as we decarbonise power systems across Europe.

Aurora has launched its European Hydrogen research service to complement our existing power and commodities services, which provides regular insights to energy players, investors, and government. As part of this, Aurora has developed a market-leading hydrogen modelling suite, which has been used to undertake several major studies into hydrogen market developments surrounding pricing, demand, transport, and the interplay between the hydrogen and power markets. Lastly, Aurora is providing bespoke analysis to clients through consultancy projects.
Based in Oxford, the hydrogen intern will report to the hydrogen product manager and work within Aurora’s larger Research and Publications team.
