Background: Under the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority’s (NYSERDA) Clean Energy Communities Program (“CECP”), Solar One is seeking to hire a person for the position of Emissions Reduction Analyst. The person will be placed within New York City government, working with NYC’s Department of Citywide Administrative Services’ Division of Energy Management (“DCAS DEM”). The person also will coordinate closely with NYSERDA and other relevant NYC agencies and offices.


Job Description: The Analyst will be charged with helping DEM advance the critical work of reducing greenhouse gas (“GHG”) emissions produced by NYC’s municipal operations. DEM serves as the hub for energy management within the City. The Analyst will conduct research and analysis, assist with strategic project management, and support planning efforts associated with implementation of Local Law 97, the cornerstone of the Climate Mobilization Act passed by New York City Council in April. In particular, the Analyst will help DEM conduct long-term planning activities required to execute Local Law 97. These activities may include helping to: 

  • Convene an agency Steering Committee to guide planning.
  • Develop an approach to allocate required emissions reductions based on targets for 2025 and 2030 among agencies.
  • Develop high-level action plans for priority agencies that capture proposed emissions reductions pathways.
  • Assess emissions reduction opportunities and associated metrics that are common across City government agencies and asset types.
  • Conceptualize an incentive system based on the pricing of avoided emissions to encourage agencies to go above and beyond their specified emissions targets and assist each other in reaching their targets.

The Analyst also may undertake additional responsibilities, including helping to:

  • Support NYC agencies in their efforts to reduce emissions through energy efficiency upgrades and renewable energy projects.
  • Identify and connect agencies with relevant energy programs and grant opportunities.

 

Preferred Skills and Experience

  • A master’s degree in a relevant field, such as business, climate science, engineering, energy management, sustainability, or urban planning and three years’ full-time professional experience working in energy or sustainability.
  • A bachelor’s degree in a relevant field and five years’ professional experience in energy or sustainability.
  • Knowledge of NYC’s energy and emissions reduction efforts, including relevant policy, legislation, and programs.
  • Experience working in City government or knowledge of City government operations.
  • Strong background in building energy efficiency.
  • Experience doing energy master planning or climate action planning.
  • Expertise in data analysis.
  • Strong research and writing skills.
  • Capacity to operate as an independent self-starter who takes initiative and is highly productive.
  • Strong capacity to manage multiple responsibilities and deadlines simultaneously.


Other Details

The person will be based out of DCAS DEM’s offices near City Hall, and will work under the guidance of DCAS' Deputy Assistant Commissioner, Strategic Planning. The position will require local travel and occasional evening meetings. This is a two year position with the possibility of extension.
