Descriptif du poste

Waga Energy, Inc., an innovative Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) producer specializing in landfill gas upgrading is currently seeking candidates for the position of Interconnection Manager in our Bala Cynwyd, PA (Philadelphia area) office to support our growing activities in the US.

If you are passionate about renewable energy and eager to make a significant impact in the energy transition, we invite you to apply for this exciting opportunity.

About Waga Energy, Inc.

Waga Energy, Inc. has developed a breakthrough technology to recover landfill gas into biomethane, also called Renewable Natural Gas (RNG). Our WAGABOX® landfill gas upgrading units deliver high-quality biomethane, regardless of the quality of the raw biogas. The biomethane produced by the WAGABOX® can be injected directly into the gas grid or used as fuel for vehicles. Waga Energy builds, owns, operates, and maintains the WAGABOX® units under long-term contracts with landfill owners, and biomethane sales revenue is shared.

Upgrading landfill gas - a waste-management byproduct - positions Waga Energy to provide the most competitively priced biomethane on the market for end customers. For large-capacity landfills, WAGABOX® can offer grid parity with natural gas.

WAGABOX® units have a double impact to help fight climate change: they capture landfills gas - a major source of greenhouse gas emissions - and produce a renewable substitute for fossil-based natural gas. Each new WAGABOX® unit marks additional progress toward a true energy transition and toward protecting our environment.
