Policy Analyst, New England Clean Energy Council – Massachusetts

Organization: New England Clean Energy Council

Position Title: Policy Analyst

Location: Boston, Massachusetts

Application Deadline: Position open until filled

Description: Public policies are major drivers for the clean energy industry, which operates in a highly complex market and regulated environment. All six New England states have implemented a portfolio of clean energy policies and a diverse set of nation leading programs to create demand for and support the development of markets for clean energy technologies, products and services. These and other policies and programs also provide support to nascent and emerging clean energy businesses to enable their development and long-term viability. Together these policies have both near- and long-term impacts on the acceleration of regional clean energy companies and jobs, and the adoption of clean energy solutions to energy and environmental concerns, including energy costs, energy source diversity, energy security and reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) and other emissions.

NECEC is seeking a Policy Analyst to support its Policy and Government Affairs team.

  • Communications and logistical support to the Policy Committee and related working groups
  • Development of presentations and meeting materials
  • Administrative support to the Vice President, including coordination of meetings, scheduling and other support as needed

Qualifications: Qualified candidates should have a bachelor’s degree in economics, political science, environmental or energy policy, business or engineering or a related field and 3 years of experience in the energy industry. A master’s degree can substitute for 1-2 years of experience. Candidates should also be able to demonstrate:
