New York Power Authority’s (NYPA) intern program provides top college students with the opportunity to gain broad experience working for the nation’s largest public power organization.
I am majoring in Energy Systems with a minor in Electrical Engineering. My industrial experience is in power generation and I picked this course to strengthen my skills in energy business analytics.
I am very passionate about getting accustomed with the energy market structures and I believe that by the end of this internship, I will achieve my goals. I am presently involved with the technical and strategic analysis related to Regional Green Gas House Initiative (RGGI) and shadowing Capacity market auctions.
The real time market depends on a lot of factors and to create an economical viable plan is really important. To do so, we need to coordinate with interrelated departments to devise our strategy, which may deviate from the real time markets but we should be ready to adapt to the challenges.
I am most excited to actually be a part of the Commercial Energy Operations department and wish to sharpen my business analytics skills and financial energy modelling.
My best friend would describe me as a ‘Hardworking and flexible person’.
I chose Chemical Engineering as my major because chemistry is fascinating and the engineering applications of it interest me. I am currently working in the Energy Services and Implementation department, which I hope will allow me to learn more about the energy industry and potentially support in my future career as a chemical engineer.
I hope that I will be able to work on projects that allow me to better understand the energy efficiency industry and how it works and is connected. I would like to be able to expand and develop my technical skills my personal skills in working with other employees and my professional communication skills, which I have had only limited experience with up to this point.
I hope that I will be able to contribute to my department by assisting my fellow employees with their projects to execute projects on time, to provide constructive feedback on internal process and to apply my education to “real world “situations.
My best friend would describe me as a passionate and sometimes loud individual that is eager to learn, and equally eager to apply that knowledge to produce real benefits for the world.
