Environment America

Government Relations Manager, Clean Energy

Washington, D.C.

The United States is poised for a decade of supercharged clean energy growth, following new state and local commitments to renewable energy and the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act. Environment America is hiring an advocate to leverage this progress to develop new and stronger clean energy champions in Congress.

Representative responsibilities

Our government relations manager for clean energy will develop relationships with clean energy champions in Congress on both sides of the aisle and work with our state and federal teams to advance renewable energy. This position requires excellent judgment and discretion and the ability to oversee significant projects. Responsibilities may include but are not limited to: 

  • Government relations: Develop and manage collaborative relationships with congressional targets and their staff, including Democrats and Republicans. 
  • Coalition building: Recruit and work collaboratively with others who can support our campaign goals, including organizations in our Congressional targets’ home states and districts.
  • Communications and media outreach: Serve as a spokesperson for our clean energy campaigns. Write materials for lawmakers, the public, and the media including opinion editorials, press releases, campaign action emails, factsheets, bill summaries, regulatory comments and presentations.
  • Campaign strategy: Identify opportunities to deepen relationships and cultivate legislative champions through media and communications, events, grassroots organizing and VIP and coalition engagement.
  • Fundraise from individual donors and foundations to support Environment America’s work.
  • Recruit and train new staff, interns and volunteers.


A successful candidate will be:

  • Experienced in professional, full-time campaign advocacy, grassroots organizing, coalition building and/or campaign politics for at least 2 years
  • A good lobbyist who can advocate, persuade and cultivate relationships (experience in a legislative office within Congress is preferred)
  • An effective communicator with excellent writing and public speaking skills
  • A creative and strategic thinker
  • Well-organized, able to work independently to achieve goals while balancing urgent and important needs
  • Passionate about renewable energy

Compensation and Benefits

The starting compensation range for this position is $35,750-$60,000 and depends on relevant experience, education, and location. Candidates on the lower end of directly relevant experience should expect to be on the lower end of this range; candidates on the higher end of relevant experience are likely to be on the higher end of this range. Environment America offers an excellent benefits package. Our benefits package includes medical, dental, and vision insurance for employees and dependents, paid time off, our commuter benefit program, a 401(k) plan with employer match, parental leave, long term disability insurance, and may include needs-based student loan assistance. We also offer an excellent training program and opportunities for advancement.

About us

Environment America is a policy and action group with one mission: to transform our ideas and imagination into change that makes our world a greener and healthier place for all.

Environment America tackles the most profound problem of our time: a way of living that is destroying the natural world. We’re advocates for energy conservation and renewable power, so we can keep oil in the ground and stop burning fossil fuels. We’re champions of plastic reduction, so nothing we use for a few minutes is allowed to pollute our oceans for centuries. And we’re defenders of wildlife and wild places, both for their own sake as well as the awe and wonder they bring to our lives. 

Environment America and our 30 state offices have made real progress solving these problems. America now produces almost four times as much renewable electricity as we did a decade ago, and one in three of us lives in a community that’s committed to meeting its needs with 100% clean electricity. And we’re just getting started.

If you want to work hard, challenge yourself, and make a real impact on the critical environmental issues of our time, consider a career with Environment America.
