Industry Program Director (remote/hybrid)
In this high-profile role as the Industry Program Director at the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE), you will lead a team of 7 and shape our research and policy agenda in the industrial sector, leading new initiatives including electrifying industrial process heat, decarbonizing construction materials (concrete, cement, steel, aluminum), and decarbonizing chemicals. As the industry program leader, you will inspire your team to deliver high-quality, credible, relevant research relied on by policymakers, business and industry decision makers, consumers, media, and other energy professionals. Your team’s research will form the policy foundation that leads to greater economic prosperity, energy equity, and environmental protection for all people. You will also guide your team on implementing a variety of market transformation strategies and activities. With unprecedented federal investment in energy and climate and growing interest from industrial companies, this position will enable you to make a significant impact; you will be well-supported to advance the goals identified in our Call to Action.
ACEEE conducts independent analysis and develops transformative policies to build a vibrant and equitable economy that uses energy more productively, protects the environment, and promotes health, safety, and well-being for all. With industry accounting for more than one-fourth of US greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, its decarbonization is essential for combating climate change. Our key target is to halve domestic energy use and associated GHG emissions by 2050 through industry decarbonization and other energy efficiency solutions.
We are looking for a persuasive leader to translate our vision into action. We can only achieve these aims by building on the decarbonization pillars of energy and resource efficiency, electrification, low-carbon fuels, and carbon capture. Industrial decarbonization will reduce costs, boost US competitiveness, and protect and grow the nation’s 20 million industry jobs.
How You’ll Make an Impact
Work Environment, Salary, and Benefits
ACEEE is committed to fostering, cultivating, and preserving a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion while weaving equity into our research and policy work.
In the industrial sector, we are leaders in 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. We recently played a leadership role in developing the newly published DOE Industrial Decarbonization Roadmap. And we refocused our efforts on the need to reduce planet-warming emissions five years ago, releasing an overview report and launching a Decarbonize Industry Initiative in 2020.
We will measure the success of our industry program over the next three years by tracking progress in the United States toward the numbers of pilots and demonstrations of low-carbon technology, regional clusters pursuing decarbonization projects, states and cities adopting procurement specifications favoring low-embodied-carbon products, large US companies using strategic energy management and setting science-based targets that use efficiency, engagements with minority-serving institutions, and the increase in the number of individuals trained to be energy managers (including underrepresented minorities).
We encourage you to apply even if your experience is not a 100% match with the position description; we will consider people from a variety of backgrounds and career experiences.
