Hiring as soon as possible; location Berlin
This application will remain open until we have found a suitable candidate.
The Project Manager will work on the following projects and tasks:
In 2020 RGI established a multi-stakeholder Offshore Coalition for Energy and Nature (OCEaN) to plan offshore wind development and its necessary electricity grid connections in the North and Baltic seas hand in hand with environmental and conservation targets. The objective is to facilitate and enable collaborative, long-term and cross-border planning of offshore infrastructure developments, giving space for both the natural environment and wind energy to thrive.
RGI is now establishing a Mediterranean chapter based on the same concept, but adapted to the region’s specific characteristics. Specifically, in the Mediterranean Sea the installed offshore capacity is very limited, but with prospects to grow fast. It presents unique characteristics in terms high levels of biodiversity, water depth, historical and archaeological value, and a high level of human activities such as fisheries and tourism, among others.
By bringing together different categories of stakeholders such as wind developers, suppliers, transmission system operators (TSOs) and environmental NGOs active in the Mediterranean, RGI intends to create an opportunity for exchange on innovative practices across different sectors, identify possible win-win solutions for industry and the environment to be shared with policy makers, and facilitate the establishment of further collaborations between industry and NGOs in the future.
The PM will define and implement a workplan and a timeline, act as facilitator and moderator of the Med OCEaN’s activities.
Furthermore, the PM will support the RGI team in other projects as required.
