First Energy is an alternative energy business that caters to consumers in rural and suburban India through an affordable cooking offer consisting of a biomass stove and a fuel made from pelletized agri-residue. Overall, the aim is to provide cleaner, safer, and sustainable energy solutions to emerging consumers who lack affordable and accessible sources of energy. The business was originally launched through BP energy, but has recently become an independent initiative. First Energy works through village-level entrepreneurs – many of them women – and has reached over 430,000 homes with 430,000 stoves to date. At present, First Energy is present in the Indian states of Maharashtra and Karnataka, but we aim to build the initiative into a commercially sustainable business across India and globally.
First Energy is looking for students and young professionals interested in working with its senior managers on a range of projects. We are a young company and need capabilities and resources in several areas as we grow, including pure supply chain management, business development, new products development, business modeling and analyst. We also welcome those interested in sustainable development who can offer technical expertise in alternate energy, policy exposure in sustainable development, experience with statistics/linear programming, chemical engineers, those with economics/commerce background who can do modeling/analysis, or those with experience in communications or brand design. Projects are flexible, and will be developed collaboratively in order to capitalize on your interests and expertise and maximize learning.
Projects can be short- or long-term, ideally at least 6 months in length. All living expenses will be covered. If you are interested in more long-term employment, First Energy can offer a reasonable salary, linked to your experience. Please get in touch to talk further about this opportunity.
