Easy Smart Grid is growing!

Easy Smart Grid looks for talents!

Who we are:

Easy Smart Grid was founded in Karlsruhe/Germany in 2014 with a clear vision: An energy system dominated by renewable sources.Our mission is to supply the missing puzzle piece - a real time information and communication technology with unmatched price/performance ratio to make the energy transformation simple and affordable.

In our first development phase, we built an international network and recognition with thought leaders on micro grids, demand side management, real time energy markets, smart decentralized control and innovative system architectures such as cellular grids.Now is the time to move our technology from solid theory to daily reality.

What you can expect:

Each team member is important in our ambitious start-up to successfully master one of the most important challenges of today - energy system transformation. To maximize your contribution, you will work with experts in fields such as renewable energy, electric grids and energy storage, algorithms and architectures, as well as engineering and industrial processes.

A start-up in a changing industry means a stimulating, demanding and rewarding environment that helps you grow quickly. Your direct work with business partners and colleagues ensures visibility and feedback. You can quickly take responsibility make an impact. In addition to the salary package, the company is prepared to reward employee's contribution to growth and success.  

Ready to work in an innovative start-up? Then send your application including position and CV to mail(at)easysg.de.

Students

We work on state-of-the art innovations and in different technology areas. This gives great opportunities for

- Thesis projects (Bachelor, Master, Diploma)

- Holiday or part time work

for students in engineering, physics and software. Opportunities include artificial intelligence and advanced control, process modelling, hardware/software development and testing, and marketing/customer oriented projects.

We prefer candidates with a mix of interdiciplinary and specialised knowledge over pure generalists or pure specialists, and believe your motivation can more than compensate lack of experience.

Due to fast changes in our project needs and our interest in your ideas, we suggest to discuss concrete project opportunities with interesting applicants directly. Please do not hesitate to contact us.

Master thesis | Provision of control power through smart grids - analysis of technical and economic potentials

The transformation of our energy system from central structures with fossil-fueled large-scale power plants to a decentralized regenerative energy landscape requires new, intelligent solutions to ensure security of supply in the future. In general, control power is used to balance imbalances between supply and output in the power system. In the current context, this is primarily provided by large power plants - especially in the primary control power segment. As part of the Master's thesis, the opportunity to provide primary control power throw small decentralized flexibilities should be given as an alternative to the current market design. In addition to the weekly invitation to tender for services, this will also open a labor market, in which market participants who are not invited by the tender can offer short-term balancing services. A promising approach for the technical realization of the control is the concept "Smart Grid 2.0" of the Easy Smart Grid GmbH. The approach enables the latency-free control of a large number of small decentralized systems in order to incorporate them into the energy system in a technically and economically sensible way.
