Why work for PowerTec?

Do you want to join us in shaping the electricity network transformation?

PowerTec solutions combine power supply resilience with wholesale energy markets access. We work closely with utilities, businesses, industry and communities to realise distributed, real-time networked, intelligent control systems and advanced battery energy storage systems to support electricity networks and commercial & industrial sites.
