In the race to combat climate change, time is of the essence. The Office of Clean Energy Demonstrations (OCED) is investing billions of dollars in projects that will play an essential role in achieving the world’s net-zero goals, deploying next-generation energy technologies across America. OCED’s mission is to deliver clean energy demonstration projects at scale in partnership with the private sector to accelerate market adoption, deployment, and the equitable transition to a decarbonized energy system.
If you want to be a significant player in this space, we’re offering an opportunity you can’t afford to ignore.
The Portfolio Strategy Division, where the Market & Energy Analysis (MEA) team resides, is responsible for maintaining a multi-year strategy to guide OCED investments, which involves assessing and managing the health of the portfolio of projects and then informing the design of ongoing and future programs that are executed through a variety of innovative federal financing mechanisms.
In support of this responsibility, the Market & Energy Analysis team: (1) monitors and
synthesizes progress on U.S. decarbonization goals in context of energy system and analysis
perspectives, (2) articulates commercialization progress and “Pathways to Liftoff” of key clean
energy technologies for DOE-wide and external audiences, and (3) engages in active dialog with the private sector to accelerate the pace and effectiveness of investments to enable the energy transition.
Reporting to the Market & Energy Analysis Director, the Energy Technology and Markets Advisor will apply expert knowledge of energy systems analysis, decarbonization technology options, and systems dynamics of energy sector and market evolution to aid OCED in building and managing a well-diversified ~$30 billion portfolio of demonstration projects that will unleash private sector capital and drive a just transition to a net-zero carbon economy by 2050.
Working with OCED, you will learn about cutting-edge clean energy and decarbonization technologies, work with a dynamic team, grow expertise in technology commercialization, and inform policies across the Federal Government.
