ScottishPower energy landscape is going through a time of profound change. A challenge touching every part of our society, we need to eradicate carbon emissions to halt the effects of climate change. We need to change how we live our lives and replace the use of fossil fuels for transport and heat.

Energy Networks:
Within SP Energy Networks, they are focusing on harnessing technology and innovation to create the networks of the future. With distribution networks designed for predictable, stable demand, it’s vital they upgrade their network to create the flexibility required to cope with the extensive changes to electricity demand, generation, and consumer behaviour. Through technology and innovation, they will enable a consumer-led revolution in the use and operation of their system. It will undergo the biggest changes to its design and operation for over half a century; and you can be part of it.

What you’ll be doing:
They’re working hard to make their network smarter, cleaner and greener to help them achieve Net Zero, and they need you to join them on the journey. With plans to accelerate the electrification of transport and heating, it’s vital that their network is ready for this electric revolution. They need Linespersons to work on their overhead lines infrastructure, Jointers to work on their underground cables and Fitters to work in their substations. You could be helping to connect new customers to their network; installing Smart equipment for monitoring or automation or locating faults on the network to restore power to their customers. You may even be carrying out critical preventative maintenance to increase efficiency and minimise electricity losses. Either way, you’ll be playing a key role in the fight against climate change.
