Job Description

This position, in Energy Efficiency’s Strategic Planning, Evaluation, and Research Team, delivers value in the following areas:  Technical Analysis (Measures, Cost Effectiveness, Regional Savings groups), Data Analysis (Market, Buildings, Customer, Meter), Peak load impacts (AMI data, demand response, measures), and Code/Legislative analysis (Energy Codes, new legislation, carbon, clean energy).


These efforts weave into existing (and new) programs and operations through external evaluations, market data, program planning, and measurement & verification. Internal team collaboration is a necessity to ensure program teams are armed with tools and information, and management of external evaluation consultants is a priority to ensure evaluation, measurement and verification dollars yield the highest value to the organization. This team is responsible for validating the veracity of the division’s energy savings portfolio.


You will be responsible for project identification, scope of work development and selection of consultants, as needed, to answer key questions or determine how to mitigate or eliminate barriers in all of our customer and program markets. As a proficient researcher and evaluator, you will design, maintain, update and analyze market studies, reports and data. You will be responsible for development of certain new energy efficient products or services in partnership with the program management teams. As utilities look towards incorporating a broad range of new technologies including distributed energy resources, targeted program deployment, and building load shifting and flexibility, new energy efficiency opportunities will emerge, and we need your help to incorporate them into our programs.
