Interns will have the option to either work remotely or to join our team located in our Brooklyn, New York office – or internationally in one of our Nairobi, Lagos, Santiago or Zagreb office locations. GreenMax is a leading international policy, financial and management advisory firm focused entirely on the clean energy sector. We advise governments, international financial institutions, investors and project developers on strategies to increase the implementation of renewable energy, energy efficiency and energy access in emerging markets worldwide.

Interns at GreenMax work on substantive research, writing and/or quantitative analysis tasks, including proposal development and grant preparation for renewable energy projects, market assessments of renewable energy potential in various countries in our target regions and preparation of information memoranda for investment and debt financing solicitations.

For our Fall program this year, interns will mainly be responsible for performing market research, analysis and outreach in support of our ongoing business activities and consulting engagements, which include:

(1) regional donor-funded assignments mainly in Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia-Pacific;
(2) transaction advisory support for a portfolio of African energy entrepreneurs working in the off-grid solar, mini-grid, commercial and industrial, and agricultural productive use market segments;
(3) the Green-4-Access (G4A) First-Loss Facility to support financing of off-grid solar projects in Sub-Saharan Africa;
and (4) the GreenStreet Africa Development Company to support preparation of de-risked portfolios of off-grid projects at public facilities in Nigeria.

For these assignments, we are specifically seeking candidates with excellent written proficiency in English. Fluency or proficiency in French is highly desirable; other language proficiencies in Portuguese or Spanish are also considered a plus. We encourage current students or recent graduates from university programs in sustainable development, renewable energy, energy and environmental policy and finance to apply.

Our undergraduate or graduate school interns are expected to work according to their school’s academic calendar. Recent graduates of programs in the aforementioned fields are asked to commit to 12-week internships. While we encourage full-time commitments, part-time arrangements may also be accepted to accommodate schedules. We always cooperate with universities to ensure academic credit. With the exception of a small stipend, the internship is unpaid. Some of our interns have been invited to permanent positions with us and many others have used their experience at GreenMax to leverage interesting positions elsewhere in the sustainable energy field.

To apply, please submit a cover letter, your resume and a brief writing sample (e.g., an article or the executive summary of a research report) to alabua@greenmaxcap.com.
Interviews will be scheduled on a rolling basis by phone/via Zoom, with the internship expected to commence in early September and extend into early December 2022. The deadline for applications is Friday August 19, 2022.
