This year Storm has started with a new project: Storm Consultancy. With Storm Consultancy we want to give students the opportunity to broaden their knowledge by carrying out consultancy cases. We are starting with our first two cases at the end of November. Our first case is with the company BayWa. They want an analysis of a potential wind power project in Utrecht, which includes technical aspects such as GIS analysis but also contact with the municipality, stakeholders analysis and much more. The second case is from Wocozon. They want an analysis of the feasibility of different electricity storage solutions for houses and neighbourhoods with solar panels. Which includes technical, policy, social, and financial aspects. 

You will be working on one of these projects in a team of 4-5 stormers. Before you start the 10 week project, you will get training from an experienced consultant who will teach you the ins and outs of consultancy. There will also be storm alumni, who currently work as consultants, accompanying you throughout the project to help you along the way. You will start the project by writing a proposal for the company in which you set out what exactly you are going to research and analyse, you have the freedom to define the scope and approach. After receiving approval, you will start conducting the case; wherein various moments of feedback are involved.

The expected workload is approximately 40 hours per student spread over 10 weeks, starting in Period 2. These first cases are not paid, seeing that the Committee is developing throughout the year, but this is a goal for later on. So be sure to grab this opportunity and gain first hand consultancy experience!
