Industrial Energy Efficiency Program Director - ACEEE
Industrial companies account for a quarter of global GDP and employment, producing products and materials we rely on every day. But generating this economic and social value carries an environmental cost—more than a fifth of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions come from industry. Energy efficiency plays a critical role in reducing industrial GHG emissions. Although the energy intensity of the U.S. economy has steadily improved since 1980, there are large and cost-effective energy efficiency opportunities that can reduce energy use in 2050 by 40-60% relative to current forecasts. Cutting industry’s carbon emissions will require significant investment and a deep understanding of the interplay between market forces and policy impacts.
As the Industrial Energy Efficiency Program Director at the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE), you will shape our research and policy agenda in the industrial sector, attracting and inspiring a small team of researchers. Our reputation is based on the high quality, credibility, and relevance of our work, as well as our bipartisan approach. By design, we bring together stakeholders that represent key industry segments and you must be able to respectfully and effectively understand and articulate the opinions of each stakeholder, without bias. Our thorough and peer-reviewed technical work is a catalyst to advance policies, programs, technologies, investments, and behaviors. With support from the senior director for research, your team’s work will empower people, establish policy, enhance processes, and enable action toward a sustainable industrial future.
In this high profile role, you will engage with other organizations and lead the development of industrially-focused conference programs and stakeholder convenings, which includes ACEEE’s Summer Study on Energy Efficiency in Industry, the premier conference on industrial energy efficiency. You will lead projects at the international, federal, state, and local level, identifying the best areas of opportunity. Our research projects often result in externally reviewed, written research reports, as well as fact sheets, formal presentations, webinars, press interviews, online blogs, editorials, videos, journal articles, and others. Your team will also provide technical assistance to outside stakeholders including presentation of ACEEE research, writing memos, and submitting formal comments, as well as convening stakeholders.
A national nonprofit research organization based in Washington, D.C., ACEEE believes that the United States can harness the full potential of energy efficiency to boost economic prosperity, improve health, and protect the environment for all its people.
ACEEE is America’s leading center of expertise on energy efficiency. We actively participate in debates on energy policy, clean air, and climate change, and are nationally recognized for leadership in energizing energy efficiency policies for buildings, industry, transportation, appliance and equipment efficiency, and agriculture and rural communities. Our research and analysis is widely relied on by policymakers, business and industry decision makers, consumers, media, and other energy professionals. We contributed provisions to all major federal energy legislation since the 1980’s, provided guidance and support to federal agencies and presidential administrations, and engaged on energy efficiency policies and programs in over three dozen states and numerous cities. Our research and partnerships have also helped launch over a dozen other organizations and campaigns. In the industrial sector, we have been leaders on strategic energy management, smart manufacturing, utility efficiency program best practices, efficient motors and motor-driven equipment, combined heat and power systems, and supporting research and development for emerging industrial processes.
