A senior carbon market analyst has resigned from E.ON, prompting the German utility to split the role into two positions, a source said.
Daniel Jefferson, previously an analyst with Thomson Reuters Point Carbon, will leave the firm’s Dusseldorf office at the end of June.
E.ON is seeking to hire two new analysts to fill the role – one to work closely with the firm’s trading desk and the other to focus on longer-term fundamentals and investments.
E.ON is due to split into two companies at year-end. Its thermal and nuclear generation and energy trading arm will become Uniper, while its renewables and energy services businesses will remain known as E.ON.
