About Coreso

The mission of Coreso is to proactively support Transmission System Operators (TSOs) to ensure Security of Electricity Supply in Europe. Located in Brussels, about fifty engineers, seconded from their companies or directly hired by CORESO, combine their expertise 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to anticipate the operation both in the short term and the long term, from a year ahead until Intraday (few hours before real time).

Founded in 2008, Coreso encompasses nine European operators, which are also its shareholders (Elia in Belgium, Eirgrid in Ireland, 50hertz in Germany, National Grid in the UK, REE in Spain, REN in Portugal, RTE in France, SONI in Northern Ireland, Terna in Italy).

Within the European context of progressing market mechanisms, continuous growth of renewable energy, ambitious grid development and further harmonization, new coordination challenges are numerous. Coreso aims to build up, together with all partners, the adequate coordinated operational processes to cope with these game changers. To secure operation of the European electricity system represents a truly international challenge.

General Context

You’ll be part of the Service Development department under the responsibility of Head of Development (HoD) of CORESO.

The Service Development department is within CORESO responsible to support the implementation of activities embedded in the so-called “5 services” (Common Grid Model, Security Analysis, Capacity Calculation, Short and Medium Term Adequacy and Outage Planning Coordination) that are, as foreseen by the European network codes, to be delivered by the Regional Security Coordinators (RSCs) as CORESO. Concretely, CORESO supports this implementation for all Capacity Calculation Regions where one of the shareholders of Coreso is active (Channel, CSE, CWE, CORE, SWE, UK-IR).

The team also takes care to develop and give the needed expertise to support these services.

In this context, they have regular interactions with TSCNET, with whom the services are jointly offered in several regions, as with the different TSOs. Project Engineers also interact with the other RSCs in the framework of the development of cross-regions methodologies.
