    Job description

    Data analytics in the energy and climate space is growing at an incredible rate. Enea is growing the team to support the energy industry through its digitisation, decentralisation and decarbonisation transition and to support operability and planning in Australia and around the world.
    We are looking for someone passionate about energy and data analytics to do-well-and-do-good by delivering data science products to better the energy market. As an analyst, you will work on projects under the supervision of project managers. In this setting, you will be exposed to the diversity of current energy challenges, leveraging your data and analytical skills to address them. We are always growing the products we deliver but over the last 12 months we have delivered:

    • Load forecasting: model and predict the evolution of the load on the electrical network. Use machine learning, data analytics and a fair amount of software development to forecast long-term energy consumption, daily energy profiles and Distributed Energy Resources (Electric Vehicles, Battery, Solar PV).
    • PV connections approval tool: dynamically model the energy network bringing together power flow modelling and machine learning to determine the PV hosting capacity of the local area. Used in production to approve hundreds of PV connection requests a day.
    • Vegetation management using LiDAR: collect three dimensional images of the local network gathered by drone or helicopter. Use machine learning and geometric models to detect and manage vegetation near powerlines.
    • Bushfire risk modelling: model and compute the network‑related bushfire risk based on fault ignition likelihood. Calculate the consequences of bushfires such as property damage or agricultural loss.
    • Low-Voltage network mapping: identify errors within the current mapping of the low-voltage network, especially targeting customers whom connection to the network has not been properly recorded. This was performed using outlier detection with out-of-bag predictors.
      Depending on the objectives, projects will entail tasks of varying nature. Your first focus will be on projects requiring data analytics capabilities.

    Preferred experience

    • consultant tool kit:

      • good oral and written communication
      • client engagement skills
