The Analysis department forms the “competitive back-bone” of the optimization and trading activities of E&M Wholesale. The importance of analytical competences and advanced quantitative methods and techniques has increased significantly in the last years due to the growing complexity of markets, assets and products. Also, the emergence of “big data”, the very dynamic and rapidly changing energy market and the further internationalization of the playing field has boosted the demand for complex models and analysis. Market intelligence and analysis is not only central to the daily trading and asset optimization activities, but also in the introduction of new business models and in deciding among the difficult strategic alternatives with which energy companies are currently confronted. At the Analysis department everything is about “brain power” and “research & development”, but in a very results-oriented and commercial wholesale/trading environment. This demands a unique combination of analytical and commercial/entrepreneurial competences and people that can work both, independently and as a team, with an open and proactive attitude.
