Internship at the Technology and Engineering Competence Center (TECC)

MicroEnergy International GmbH


MicroEnergy International (MEI) is an internationally active consulting company with headquarters in Berlin, Germany. MEI works with financial institutions, energy product & service providers, international development actors and with policy makers in order to set up sustainable clean energy finance schemes. In this framework, MEI takes care of the overall project management (from planning through implementation to evaluation), thereby designing, evaluating and optimizing energy products and services, and ensuring that financial instruments are tailored to the needs of the business sector and end-users . MEI finally strengthens its activities through scientific quality management, in partnership with research institutions worldwide, and offers a variety of training opportunities.

The company is currently looking for interns to support the Technology and Engineering Competence Center (TECC), which consolidates MEI's energy and financial expertise, organizing technical knowledge and personnel transfer across global MEI projects. Consisting of engineering experts specialized in design, sizing, layout and installation of thermal, electrical and environmental systems, the TECC has years of experience performing technology and supplier analyzes to support MEI's project teams. An equally important role that TECC assumes is evaluating financial feasibility and funding opporutnities for these technologies, which are recommended and enabled across MEI's projects.

Under the supervision of the Head of TECC, the intern will have the following responsibilities:

  • Conducting market research of different off-grid energy technologies in the targeted countries of the relevant projects;
  • Assisting the design and development of renewable energies and energy efficiency technologies within the project framework;
  • Business evaluation of projects undertaken, often in the context of microfinance;
  • Evaluating financial aspects of energy access projects;
  • Other roles include supporting the team during field missions or in background research for project acquisition activities.

The current positions are open with immediate effect. While your presence in Berlin is encouarged, it is not necessary, under current circumstances due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A remote working arrangement is feasible. The minimum period of engagement is 5 months, with a maximum period of 6 months of continuous engagement.


We are looking for people with the right competencies and skills for the role, and who demonstrate the personal qualities consistent with our values.

You should ideally:

  • Be a student who needs to do an obligatory internship (or that which is highly recommended) as part of their studies (a declaration from the University is required);
  • Have an educational background in energy engineering, environmental and resource management, energy finance, energy data analysis or a related field; students with a financial / policy related background are also encouraged to apply;
  • Preferably, possess some academic or work related experience and interest in energy load demand estimation, projections and simulation of technical systems using digital tools;
  • Have a professional working knowledge of written and verbal communication skills in English (necessary) and French (highly favorable);
  • Have an advanced knowledge of MS Office (Word, PowerPoint and Excel); knowledge of design and planning software (eg HOMER, PVSyst/PVSol) is a plus;
  • Be a team player with strong communication skills, as well as proactive attitude to tasks and responsibilities; have a demonstrated ability to work in a fast moving environment with changing needs and deadlines.

The TECC team is also open to collaboration for thesis, if it is related to MEI's area of interest / expertise, ideally aligned with an on-going or upcoming project.
