Commercial Internship

bij Oceans of Energy B.V.  -  Katwijk

Over deze stage

Oceans of Energy is a young company and the first in the world to place solar panels offshore in ocean conditions. This will bring a big positive impact to the world: abundance of clean energy without land space issues. Our goal is to allow all populations near the sea, from small islands to large coastal regions, to generate clean energy using their sea space rather than their scarce land. Our focus is the technological development of offshore solar systems, hand in hand with ecological research to understand the impact as well as the benefits for nature and marine life. The company is now embarking on commercial roll-out.   

We are currently looking for an intern to investigate potential installation sites for commercial projects for offshore floating solar worldwide. You will search for islands, wind parks or other interesting locations around the world that could benefit from offshore solar power supply and assess the feasibility of starting a project at those sites. Potential installation sites could for example be old coal plants, islands with currently expensive power supply or offshore wind parks that can facilitate solar integration. Further analysis concerns e.g. projections of solar irradiance and energy demand for the location.  

The scale-up Oceans of Energy consists of a young and vibrant team complemented with top-seniors from the offshore and commercial industry. We offer you an environment in which you can take-up key-responsibilities and develop yourself exponentially. Together with our team, you can make a lasting positive impact and revolutionize the world of clean energy.

Responsibilities include:

  • Research potential installation sites for offshore floating solar
  • Analyze the potential of identified interesting sites with a quick market study
  • Develop easily measurable indicators to assess the potential of a site
  • Translate performance indicators into economic value based on existing literature
  • Identify funding mechanisms, local partners and relevant stakeholders
  • Collaborate effectively with variety of team members and organizations

Qualifications and Qualities: 

  • Bachelor/Master student in Business Administration, Economics, Science Business & Innovation or related field of study, preferably with an interest in energy sciences/sustainability
  • Excellent English language skills, understanding of Dutch is beneficial
  • Start-up mentality: enthusiastic, independent, and getting things done with simple means
  • Driven, curious and always focusing on solutions
  • Self-directed, quick learner 
  • Able to perform well in a fast-paced and highly challenging environment
