The ENGIE business units that drive ENGIE’s renewable energy strategy are fast-paced, high energy environments. The legal team covers a wide-range of legal issues such as acquisitions of early-stage solar/storage assets, power purchase agreements, equipment supply agreement, services agreements, construction agreements, regulatory review, legal support for tax equity financing and more. We are also actively supporting our finance and risk management teams to evaluate counterparty and vendor credit risk in this tumultuous financial environment. Our team members are located throughout the United States, which can mean a few early morning calls or late evening calls depending where you live. Although we work hard, we’re a fun group and we’re working hard to work as a team even though we are not in the same physical space.
We want to work with a law student who is self-driven and organized; willing to ask for direction as needed; and who has strong oral and written communication skills. A passion for fighting global warming is a plus. Prior experience in the renewable energy industry is not necessary, but definitely a bonus.
Location: Due to the current office occupancy and travel restrictions throughout the United States this will be a remote-work position until further notice. Please confirm that you have adequate phone services, WiFi access, and a work space that will be conducive to fulfilling the work requirements.
