E.ON Inhouse Consulting GmbH

We are the trusted advisor to the top leadership of E.ON and we’re on a mission to create the blueprint for the energy transition of Europe – and beyond.

For us energy transition is more than just a buzzword. It simply is one of the most pressing issues our generation has to solve. To that end, we put out our ideas to challenge the status quo and turn them into a new reality. We push boundaries and deliver the seemingly impossible. For a better society. Across our 1.6 million grid kilometers. And most of all for our 51 million customers. For us, that’s 51 million opportunities to change something. And not just in theory, but for real.

We also happen to grow future leaders. People who share the same vision for the future. People with sharp minds who come up with new yet workable solutions. People who are tenacious and want to change things for the better. People who take pleasure in our open, diverse and feedback-oriented culture.

Sounds like you? Why wait. The time is now. LET’S CHANGE ENERGY. FOR REAL.
