Topic: Energy storage market research to comprehend customer needs
Renewable energy technologies, such as wind and solar energy, are increasingly being deployed. However, these energy sources are intermittent, meaning the supply and demand often do not match. During high energy generation, the excess is lost which could be stored and used during high demand. Furthermore, when the supply level is too high, electrical grids become unstable which could lead to severe damages.
Who are we?
AquaBattery is clean-tech startup consisting of highly motivated and high-profile engineers interested in developing more sustainable energy technologies. We have developed a battery that can store electricity using only water and table-salt (i.e. salt concentration differences), which we named as the Blue Battery. Our battery systems can help solve energy storage problems in a clean, safe and sustainable way. Along with the Blue Battery, we are developing Green Battery, which stores energy in pH differences aside from salt concentration differences.
What can you expect and who are you?
You will be working in a highly energetic and dynamic environment with a team of high-profile professionals. You will have the opportunity to learn about energy storage technologies and obtain hands on business development experience. You can expect supervision and coaching and you will receive a compensation for your work. How does it sounds? Do you fulfill the following requirements? Come and join us!
You will be working in a team to map out what our customer needs. AquaBattery is receiving requests daily for our battery products and we would like to understand what exactly it is the customer is looking for. Furthermore, we want to understand their motivation and what is important to them (e.g. cost savings, minimal backup, off-grid self-sufficiency, etc). You will formulate research questions and talk to the customers accordingly to obtain data. After we have obtained sufficient data, we will analyze these, try to divide customer needs into various categories and use this data to formulate an advice to our customers in a standard report. This whole process then will be translated into an online platform where people can fill in their answers and receive the advice in form of report.
Formulation of questions for potential customers and categorization based on their needs
Analyzing the obtained data and extraction of useful information to put in a standard report.
Implement these questions into a type of form and integrate this with our website (design and build the front-end/back-end of the webpage).
Duration: 3-6+ months | Location: Leiderdorp
AquaBattery is a team of 6 young professionals, with people having backgrounds in engineering and science. Currently the team is growing, with 3 fulltime positions and 3 internships open.
