Job opportunity at the cutting edge of community energy generation
Lewes has always been something of a pioneer, and with their energy company, they’re maintaining that spirit.
OVESCo, the Ouse Valley Energy Services Company, is non-profit organisation set up to raise capital for renewable power projects in the Lewes District/Sussex region in the UK. Their aim is to facilitate decentralised power generation through community investment. Currently OVESCo is focussed on generating electricity via PV (photo voltaic) arrays on buildings/land using the Feed-in-Tariff to provide a return on investment. In addition to PV, OVESCo is looking at a range of ways to generate community heat and power in such a way to reduce local CO2 emissions.
They’re looking for a Project Manager to help develop a business plan and launch the community share issues with the purpose of expanding community power generation for the Lewes District/Sussex region and develop new income streams for OVESCo.
