About RheEnergise

RheEnergise is bringing innovation to energy storage with our High-Density Hydro® system. RheEnergise’s new solution uses a high-density fluid instead of water in a pumped energy storage system for grid-scale projects.

RheEnergise’s ambition is to facilitate huge growth in renewable energy power generation and mitigate the worst effects of climate change, globally.


Working for us

At RheEnergise you will work with a diverse and highly talented group of people who share a passion for clean energy and sustainability. Our London office is a bright space in Gospel Oak, next to the greenery of Hampstead Heath.

We are a young company aiming for rapid and dynamic growth in the next 3 years. We seek ambitious, talented people to join our team, who want to grow and learn with us.


The Role

The role is ideally suited to a person with innovative ideas on how to deliver projects at lower costs, faster. The Cost Engineer will report to the CEO and work closely with both the Operations and Engineering Teams to meet targets.

We are seeking a highly motivated person with relevant experience and excellent project management skills who can take on responsibility and line management.
