What You'll Do

BCG is looking for Project Leaders, Principals, or Experts focused on batteries and energy storage (Li-ion and LDES) to join our Climate & Sustainability team and work alongside some of the world’s top minds in the industry. You will play a critical role in the growth of our battery and energy storage topics through case execution, client development, and intellectual property and product creation. To help tackle climate change, and move to a more sustainable and equitable future, BCG helps clients transform to optimize for societal and business value. Our clients are facing more pressure than ever to rethink their role in society and improve their impact on people and the planet. Our Climate & Sustainability practice seeks to help our private and public sector clients take on difficult challenges across a range of sectors and topics including natural resources, power & renewables, industrials, consumer goods & retail, and financial institutions.

At BCG you will become a pivotal member of our team, working alongside some of the world’s top minds on the forefront of climate & sustainability topics. You will collaborate closely with team members from many backgrounds, advising clients across industries on how to equitably achieve their net zero ambitions and reach their sustainability goals. Current openings span levels and depth of expertise, meaning the type of work you will focus in could vary.

Leveraging your experience, you will develop industry-leading solutions to help our clients succeed by:
  • Evaluating state-of-the-art and emerging solutions for their technology readiness, attributes, and impact on adoption of energy storage
  • Teaming with energy storage leads to maintain tools that track and forecast supply and demand across the value chain (mining, materials, cells, integration, recycling)
  • Codifying insights on purchase price + total cost of ownership across use cases in transportation and energy
  • Developing perspectives on emerging partnerships and go-to-market actions by hardware, software, and service providers of energy storage solutions
  • Teaming with clients to build new energy storage businesses and/or acquire energy storage solutions that support their decarbonization agendas
  • Cultivating strategies that unblock emerging chokepoints in energy storage deployment and operations (e.g., resource scarcity, workforce shortage)
  • Building or expanding your existing network with technologists, strategic thinkers on the energy transition, policymakers to understand how value creation is evolving
BCG Experts are integrated into a BCG team and leverage deep expertise on projects that reshape businesses. They are given end-to-end responsibility for large and complex “modules” within a BCG project, may lead small but high-impact teams to drive results for our clients, and contribute to BCG’s intellectual capital. They work closely with clients to understand their issues, create strategies for change, and win buy-in for recommendations, while also collaborating with colleagues on complex client issues. 

BCG Project Leaders and Principals lead case teams, engage with and present to senior clients, direct projects to define client needs, manage project scoping and work module development, supervise research activities, and participate in business development. They oversee the formulation of hypotheses for research and investigation, as well as advanced analysis to identify opportunities. Project Leaders and Principals are also responsible for continuously developing the firm’s knowledge and capabilities and play a key role in the development and maintenance of high-level client relationships.

What You'll Bring (Experience & Qualifications)

  • 5+ years energy storage consulting and/or industry experience
  • Knowledge of key topics related to batteries and/or energy storage
  • Ability to develop leading edge business models, frameworks for analysis, and long-term business strategies that maximize shareholder value
  • As appropriate based on tenure, proven ability to manage client engagements, client relationships, and provide “thought leadership” to teams, owning the responsibility for the quality of engagements. A combination of management and “hands on” delivery experience is critical
  • Excellent communication skills; able to explain complex industry concepts in non-technical terms
