About the opportunity

As a Senior Grid Investment Modeller you'll lead the delivery of fit-for-purpose electricity demand forecasting, generation dispatch and expansion modelling, and economic analysis to support Transpower's investment and expenditure decision making.

Internally, you will work with a range of people to complete your analysis and be able to document and communicate your assumptions, methodology and findings in a manner that is easy to understand.

  • Undertake and oversee the production of electricity demand forecasts
  • Undertake generation expansion and dispatch modelling using tools such as SDDP and PLEXOS
  • The ability to influence through verbal and written communication will be critical as you work to ensure that Transpower's analysis meets internal guidelines and external regulatory requirements.

    To be considered, your CV and cover letter will demonstrate :

  • Experience in leading and undertaking complex quantitative economic analysis
  • Experience in electricity market modelling using programmes, such as SDDP, PLEXOS, and vSPD
