Position: Senior Energy Efficiency Analyst
Location: Sacramento or San Francisco
The Energy Division is seeking a Senior Analyst to develop policy and oversee implementation of policies such as Senate Bill (SB) 350, CPUC energy efficiency programs, and other emerging state government initiatives related to energy savings and affordability in residential populations. Under the general direction of the Program and Project Supervisor, the Senior Energy Efficiency Analyst will support California’s growing efforts to bring energy efficiency and energy equity to impacted populations, such as disadvantaged communities, hard to reach, rural, tribal, and low income populations.
In implementing Commission energy efficiency policy, the senior analyst will lead complex quantitative research to develop policy alternatives and evaluate the efficacy of utility energy efficiency programs designed to comply with state legislation and commission policy. The incumbent will draw on energy usage, behavioral, social science, and economic studies. The Senior Energy Efficiency Analyst will also lead development and analysis for a report mandated by statute on the specific strategies for, and an update on, progress toward statewide energy efficiency savings goals, and maximizing savings in disadvantaged communities.
In support of developing new policy, the analyst will conduct original policy analysis to recommend innovative ways for more effectively reaching populations in need with energy efficiency measures. The analyst will take a broad and strategic view, considering the Commission’s role 1) to lead integrated resource planning to optimally meet state Greenhouse Gas (GHG) reduction goal affordably, reliable, and safely, and 2) to ensure affordable energy bills.
In these efforts, the incumbent will collaborate with state and local government agencies that have shared mission in saving energy and/or serving disadvantaged and underserved populations. The incumbent will also coordinate with other divisions across the commission on emerging commission proceedings: affordability, disconnection (Senate Bill 598), disadvantaged communities and environmental justice action plan, and other proceedings with disadvantaged community component.
The analyst will also be expected to provide more general support including, but not limited to, creating, facilitating and conducting workshops, representing the Commission on relevant working groups, and responding to information requests, both internal and external.
