• Demonstrated experience in a research environment with developing, managing and using energy-related software tools, datasets and/or databases, and engineering, environmental, or energy system models.

• Experience with project management.

• Advanced knowledge of energy efficiency.

• Demonstrated familiarity with demand response, electric power systems, and distributed resource programs and technologies.

• Strong verbal and written communication skills.

 

What We Desire:

• Advanced degree in Energy & Resources, Public Policy, Economics, Business Administration, City & Regional Planning, Environmental Studies, Engineering or a related field.

• Professional or consulting experience, ideally working with utilities, states or local governments on energy efficiency, demand response, electric power systems, and distributed resource programs and technologies. 

• Familiarity with programming languages and database platforms.
