About the Center for Sustainable Energy®
Center for Sustainable Energy (CSE) is an independent, mission-driven nonprofit organization with offices in San Diego, Oakland, Los Angeles and Boston. We accelerate the adoption of clean and efficient energy solutions via program administration, technical assistance, policy innovation, and other forms of market facilitation. We are uniquely positioned and engaged with a variety of stakeholders and market actors, including policy-makers, state and federal agencies, regional and local governments, utilities, business and civic leaders, and individuals in both the general market and equity sectors. Our technical areas of focus include distributed energy resources (renewable energy, energy efficiency, energy storage, fuel cells, combined heat and power) and clean transportation.
CSE is looking for a motivated, detail-oriented, and organized individual to join the Distributed Energy Resources, Technology Integration (DER-TI) team. The DER Technology Integration team is made up of project managers, specialists, and coordinators, who work with public, private and nonprofit partners to lead clean energy demonstration projects that assess, test and prove innovative approaches to achieving deep energy savings in buildings. Working closely with Project Manager(s), the Coordinator will support pre-commercialized demonstration projects funded by the CA Energy Commission, technical assistance projects funded by the Department of Energy (DOE), feasibility studies for local and regional commercial and government entities, and a growing portfolio of similar projects.
Activities will include engaging with and coordinating clean energy stakeholders including municipal and commercial building owners and operators, contractors, design professionals, and local government staff and elected officials to understand barriers and identify opportunities for solutions that lead to energy savings in the building sector.
The ideal candidate will have a strong understanding of clean energy technologies and solutions for increasing the adoption of tools and resources that achieve energy savings in the built environment. The successful candidate will have excellent stakeholder coordination skills, provide friendly and professional customer service, and demonstrate a “think outside the box” mentality that leads to identification and development of effective tools and resources that help target audiences achieve shared clean energy objectives. Other duties and special projects may be assigned, so flexibility and openness to change are essential to this role.
