Project Support Executive

We are looking for a Project Support Executive to support the Project Managers in delivering some of the UK’s most high profile renewable energy projects, as well as provide support to the client management team on an ongoing basis.

SYZYGY’S VISION

To be the leading Renewable Energy Consultancy.  

Delivering strategic, practical and commercially sustainable solutions globally.

Winner of the 2018 BusinessGreen Awards “Consultancy of the Year”, Syzygy is a leading renewable energy and low carbon technology consultancy.  We provide many of the UK and Europe’s largest commercial real estate owners and developers with an accessible route into renewable energy generation and the practical deployment of on-site low carbon technologies.

Founded in 2010 we have advised clients across the world on over 20 technologies (including Solar PV, Wind, Hydro, Biomass, Heat Networks, Anaerobic Digestion, Battery Storage and Electric Vehicle Charging). Solar has been the dominant technology since the business was set up.

We provide a unique, end-to-end service to our clients, advising initially on identifying opportunities, assessing the technical and financial feasibility, design, specification, procurement (tendering), construction management and finally we operate 150 completed, energy generating assets.  We are alongside our client throughout this process making sure that their capital is protected.

Understanding the technologies and how those can be applied practically and commercially for our clients is, of course, a given: understanding our clients’ sector and specifically their own businesses is one of our core strengths, and something that specifically sets us apart.
Our team of 11 are passionate about low carbon technologies, excellent client service and have identified the values that continue to make Syzygy the leading independent renewables consultancy in the UK.  These are:

Client First
We Love it
Expert Practical Solution
Socially, Financially & Environmentally sustainable
Deliver together
