Working in the H2/CCS technology team, collaborating with the End-Use Application Portfolio Manager you will be responsible for:
• End-use case application research and technology landscaping as guidance to bp’s hydrogen technology strategy and roadmap.
• Supporting technical engineering capability development across bp in hard-to-abate industrial decarbonization.
• Supporting bp’s business development squads in offtaker origination activities and customer-focused technology evaluations.
• Evaluating and helping to drive cost reduction of hydrogen to the end customer.
• Participating in bp internal and industry networks to drive continuous improvement, knowledge sharing and application of technical practices.
