Summary of Role

Anthesis’ goal is to reduce global emissions 3Gt by 2030 through our work – that’s about half the annual emissions of the US!  With a goal like that, we don’t mess about, pushing our clients to stretch beyond what feels easy or comfortable. Afterall, we’re in a climate emergency, so nothing less will do. 

While pressure to decarbonize has never been higher, doing it right starts with great data, expert analysis, and evidence-led solutions. That’s why we are seeking bright, environmentally committed people to join our Energy Analytics team.  Whether you are an engineer, a recent graduate, or someone with strong analytical skills looking to enter the field of sustainability, we’d love to hear from you.

The Energy Analytics team sits within Anthesis’s Energy Systems Engineering team. Energy Analytics provide specialist analytical support to the engineering team on global energy systems projects. Their role is the rigorous analysis of existing or future energy consumption, primarily in built assets and infrastructure, to identify excessive use, achievable efficiency improvements, energy vector substitutions and alternative low carbon production for all over the globe. This analysis leads to project identification and financial evaluation for our clients aiming to deliver real emissions reductions.

Successful applicants will be supported with the tools and training they need to become accomplished environmental experts, working on the front lines of the global fight to stop climate change.
