We’re also building the energy systems of tomorrow – from bringing innovative technology to market that changes the way homes and businesses use energy, to competing for new, large-scale, climate-friendly energy projects.

Finally, the Customer Manager will work with the BritNed commercial team, feeding in customer market intelligence, to develop the BritNed portfolio of auction products and services.
