What if your career could have a lasting impact on you, and the World? 


Climate change is driving an unprecedented transformation in the global energy sector. The energy industry is transitioning to a low carbon, decentralised future, facing a wide range of engineering and economic challenges along the way. Do you want to be part of this journey?

  • Forecasting the feasibility of decarbonising electricity systems before 2040,
  • Assessing the impacts on the grid of major transmission network augmentations including HumeLink, Marinus Link and VNI West based on extensive electricity market models,
  • Helping develop new generation and storage project.
