David Gardiner and Associates (DGA) offers a full-time internship program to undergraduates and graduate students. This is a competitive program that seeks qualified candidates with strong interest, education, or experience in climate, sustainability, and clean and renewable energy policy. This is an unpaid internship and is intended for the educational benefit of the intern.

DGA is a strategic advisory firm focused on climate change, renewable energy, energy efficiency, electric vehicles, and an expanded and modernized electric grid. We work with businesses, associations, institutions, and others to accelerate climate and clean energy solutions and policy. Our approach is built on a foundation of in-depth analysis and sharp strategic planning, based on our team’s decades of experience. To do this, we frequently build partnerships with business, governments, and non-profit organizations, as it is the most effective way to make change. 

The intern will participate with DGA staff and principals with projects on diverse climate and energy issues such as:

·      Climate change

·      Renewable energy

·      Corporate sustainability

·      Industrial energy efficiency and Combined Heat and Power

·      Electric vehicles

·      Electricity markets and regulation

·      An expanded and modernized electric grid

The intern will work closely with all staff and principals to gain experience by attending meetings and briefings, performing research, attending relevant seminars, writing summaries, etc. We work with the intern to assign projects that will increase their knowledge in energy and climate issues while supporting their strengths and interests. Interns receive in-depth experience and exposure to DGA’s expertise and clients as they work with project supervisors who provide background information, clear direction, and feedback regarding the intern’s efforts.

DGA’s Internship Program goal is for the intern to have a high-quality learning experience in a business environment which will increase their knowledge and experience, bolster their professional resume, and benefit from being a dedicated member of the DGA team and networking opportunities made available throughout the internship.
