Monday, September 2, 2019
ISO New England oversees the 24/7 operation of the power grid that covers the six-states of  New England and administers the region’s $10+ billion “stock exchange” for the buying and selling of wholesale electricity. The power system is constantly evolving as new technologies emerge and energy policies evolve. There is a lot going on at our organization behind the scenes to make sure the grid continuously yields reliable electricity at competitive prices while addressing the unique challenges that come along with our industry.

Intern: Asset Registration & Auditing
Minimum Education Level: Rising Senior
Preferred Majors: Engineering, Business Administration or Economics

Department description:

The Asset Registration and New Generation group registers energy supply and demand assets for wholesale market settlements.  This includes everything from tie-line flow of utilities; competitive suppliers serving retail load, demand response aggregators, to complex Combined Cycle generating facilities.  We are an important part of the market operations group that bridges the challenging needs of ensuring Operations is able to reliably operate the grid to ensuring the wholesale market successfully settles on a day to day basis.

What will you be working on:
The market place is rapidly evolving with a large increase in registration of renewables such as wind and solar as well as the latest regional interest in battery storage.  Our systems are slow to evolve with these changes and we are currently working on a project known as Streamline Asset Registration (SAR).  This is a multi-year initiative to improve our data entry and downstream system bridging for all our market assets.

How will you make an impact:
Responsibilities include assisting the team members in all types of asset registration, which includes preparing electronic forms and data entry.  The asset registration team coordinates both external utilities and project developers along with many internal ISO departments in complex modeled asset registrations.  In doing so, the group is positioned well for learning much on what other departments do and what their requirements are.  Our SAR project’s goal is to take what is learned and incorporate logical solutions into the group’s processes and procedures.  The group is a great place to partake in the quickly evolving energy marketplace.

What we look for in a candidate:

  • Pursuing bachelor’s degree in business administration/economics
  • Customer service experience, some office/administration experience
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Collaborates well with a team
