Junior Market Analyst Internship

Job Location

Expiration Date

29 Feb 2024

Euroheat & Power is the European association promoting sustainable heating & cooling, focusing on district heating and cooling (DHC) solutions. It represents 130+ members in more than 30 countries worldwide, including national DHC associations in the European Union, utilities operating DHC systems, manufacturers, research institutes, consultants and other organisations involved in the DHC business.

The decarbonisation of heating and cooling is critical to delivering Europe's energy and climate objectives. The heating sector represents 50% of Europe's energy demand and remains highly dependent on fossil fuels. Without a doubt, heating & cooling is the next EU energy policy arena to achieve the European Green Deal objectives and become climate-neutral by 2050 at the latest. Locally owned and a flagship of the European industry, DHC will be critical to further decarbonise heating & cooling (enabling the uptake of renewable and recovered heat sources) and contribute to strengthening Europe's energy security. The DHC industry has tremendous potential to grow in Europe and could provide up to 50% of the heat demand by 2050!
In 2019, our sector pledged to achieve climate neutrality by 2050, and the recently adopted Energy Efficiency Directive set a clear decarbonisation pathway to deliver this objective. Working with European and national policy-makers, Euroheat & Power’s core mission is to ensure that its members and community achieve this goal, and benefit from the appropriate EU framework to develop renewable and sustainable solutions.
On this journey, we need committed and talented people! 
Join a great working environment, a dynamic, fun and international team, and make your mark in Europe’s energy and climate transition.
