Business Development Director for Europe
encoord is looking for a full-time Business Development Director for Europe to join its office in Essen, Germany.
encoord is a software company specialized in modeling of energy networks. encoord is based in Denver, CO, USA and in Essen, Germany. Its mission is to enable global energy transitions by providing decision makers with solutions to decarbonize energy systems. encoord’s main product is the Scenario Analysis Interface for Energy Systems (SAInt), the only software that can model coupled energy networks using simulation and optimization algorithms. The users of SAInt can analyze the synergies and challenges at the interface between energy systems by modeling different energy networks in a combined way. For instance, SAInt users can model coupled electricity and gas networks by running a transient hydraulic gas network simulation combined with a power system AC power flow simulation. The users of SAInt can also quantify the trade-offs between cost and reliability of planning and operational decisions by iterating between different types of mathematical models of the same network. For instance, SAInt users can run an AC power flow simulation after running a power system production cost model to evaluate any potential voltage violations and any relevant miss-representation of active and reactive power flows that may result from the calculation of optimal generation commitment and dispatch decisions.
