Your Power Experts

Power Generation

The generation sector of the power industry is responsible for generating electricity using various technologies, such as fossil fuels, nuclear power, and renewable energy sources. This sector plays a critical role in meeting the growing demand for electricity while also addressing the challenges of climate change and energy security. Fossil fuel-based power generation is the most common form of electricity generation worldwide, but there is an increasing shift towards renewable energy sources such as wind and solar power. Nuclear power generation provides a low-carbon and reliable source of electricity, but there are concerns regarding safety, nuclear waste management, and high upfront capital costs. The generation sector is continuously evolving, with ongoing technological advancements and increasing focus on sustainability and carbon emissions reduction.

Transmission

The transmission sector of the power industry is responsible for transmitting electricity from power plants to substations through high-voltage power lines. The transmission sector also includes the use of advanced technologies such as Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems to monitor and control the electricity grid, ensuring that the system operates efficiently and reliably. There are ongoing efforts to upgrade and modernize transmission infrastructure to support the integration of renewable energy sources, improve grid resiliency, and enhance cybersecurity. As the demand for electricity continues to grow and new technologies are developed, the transmission sector will continue to play a crucial role in ensuring that electricity is delivered efficiently and reliably to end-users.

Distribution

The distribution sector of the power industry is responsible for distributing electricity from substations to end-users through low-voltage power lines. The distribution sector includes the operation and maintenance of local electricity grids, such as transformers, cables, and distribution substations, which are designed to regulate the voltage and frequency of electricity to meet end-user requirements. Advanced technologies such as smart meters and distribution automation systems are increasingly being deployed to improve grid efficiency and reliability. As the demand for electricity continues to grow and new technologies emerge, the distribution sector will continue to play a crucial role in ensuring that end-users have access to reliable and affordable electricity.

Energy Storage

The energy storage sector of the power industry is responsible for developing and deploying energy storage technologies that help to store excess electricity generated by renewable energy sources and balance the electricity grid. Energy storage technologies include batteries, pumped hydro storage, flywheels, and compressed air energy storage. Energy storage technologies help to integrate renewable energy sources into the electricity grid by storing excess electricity when demand is low and releasing it when demand is high. As the demand for clean and reliable electricity continues to grow, the energy storage sector will play a critical role in ensuring a more sustainable and resilient power system.

Need for Diverse & Local Staff

Global Edge engaged with a client who is one of the largest private developer, owner, and operator of independent power plants in Africa and needed to ensure that nothing was left to chance with appointment of their senior management team in Mozambique.
The Solution

Following an extensive mapping exercise, the Global Edge developed a staffing plan for project-critical senior management who were pivotal to the success of the project in Mozambique. Global Edge deployed our executive search team to manage the recruitment process on an exclusive basis.

Global Edge also assisted our client with advisory services including legal, financial, and local government requirements relating to engagement of personnel under the framework of Mozambican employment legislation.  

Global Edge worked in tandem with our client to develop a staffing plan for the various phases of project execution that included a strong focus on recruiting qualified Mozambican women to fill roles. Global Edge ensured priority was given to Mozambican personnel but was also able to identify skilled specialists from other regional countries and European subject matter experts with extensive experience on similar size projects globally. Our global mobility team ensured the smooth transition of the personnel handling immigration, flights, malaria control policy education and adherence, local transportation, local accommodations, and Portuguese lessons as required.

The Outcome

Through the dedication and knowledge provided by the Global Edge team, our client was able to exceed their internal benchmark for local and diversity hires while providing the quality talent needed for project success. All roles identified were delivered successfully and on time, allowing the project to move forward with project execution.

Due to the positive experiences with GEC as a client, I chose to work with GEC when it came time to seek employment as a contractor, and I have not been disappointed.
