Job Title: Head of Energy Contract Type: Permanent; Full-Time Salary: Salary will be confirmed with successful candidate on appointment Closing Date: 10am, Monday 30th September 2019
About the Role:
Energy, specifically electrical energy, is one of the largest areas of NI Water’s operational expenditure. When considering the future of energy at NI Water, it would be negligent to ignore the significant Climate Change and Sustainability statements now emanating from Central Government and the Utility Regulator – committing to achieving “net-zero” greenhouse gases by 2050.
Although Northern Ireland (NI) has no equivalent net-zero policy in place, NI will be expected to make a meaningful contribution to UK carbon reduction commitments. With this in mind, NI Water needs to maintain momentum on our Price Control 15 (PC15) energy programme – committing to saving £4.1m on an annual recurring basis by 2021; and committing to developing well-informed and co-ordinated investment decisions on cost-efficient energy consumption reduction and emission mitigation projects going forward into Price Control 21 (PC21) and beyond.
The role of the Head of Energy is critical in maintaining this momentum and identifying and prioritising investment opportunities; understanding a complex evolving energy landscape; NI Water’s energy use, fuel composition and emissions within that landscape; and ensuring NI Water stays on target to deliver our long-term 2050 Energy Strategy objectives. The Head of Energy will be required to provide strategic energy leadership, manage the NI Water Energy Team, Business Improvement (BI) resource and external resources, and influence internal and external stakeholders to obtain the necessary commitment to deliver NI Water’s sustainable energy future.
The Head of Energy will be responsible for a range of activities outlined below which will support the Customer Services Directorate. Areas of responsibility will include but not be limited to the following:
Budget and People Management Responsibilities
