Job Description: 

The Ohio Environmental Council (OEC) seeks a contractor to support the OEC’s Cleveland area energy efficiency program development efforts, including policy research and advocacy, communication with local policy makers, stakeholder engagement and coordination, and facilitation of a policy focused coalition.

Position description: The Energy Efficiency Program Director will support the OEC’s Air and Energy Program Director on specific Cleveland-focused energy efficiency policy efforts. The Energy Efficiency Program Director will advocate for effective energy efficiency policy and financing opportunities in Cleveland, and will work to develop the support of traditional and non-traditional allies for a policy effort. Work on the project should focus on the maintenance of an effective political coalition, the engagement of City and local leaders, and the development of strong, effective, nationally leading local energy efficiency solutions.

The OEC is looking for on-the-ground energy efficiency deployment and investment, and wishes to look beyond discussion and debate towards the realization of an effective local program with community support and buy in, that others in the state and region can look to as a strong example of community leadership.

Specifically, the Energy Efficiency Program Director will help to implement the OEC’s local energy efficiency agenda through the following activities:

  • Developing a strong understanding of energy efficiency program development and financing; conducting research on nationally leading localized energy efficiency efforts; researching and developing relationships with local institutions
  • Execute the OEC’s local energy efficiency objectives in the Cleveland area, working to support the OEC’s energy efficiency programming goals and activities in Lorain County as well
  • Build alliances with fellow local environmental-conservation groups; lawmakers and government agency officials and their staff; university researchers and staff; local non-profits; and the business community by helping with direct communications and relationship building; meeting and seminar attendance; website observation; and other modes of communication
  • Organizing Cleveland focused energy efficiency events  
  • Developing strong and lasting relationships with local policymakers and leaders
  • Interacting with local foundations and other allied institutions
  • Identify and support existing energy efficiency efforts

Qualifications: The Energy Efficiency Program Director must have significant analytic, communication, and leadership qualities with demonstrated skills or aptitudes in research, policy development, advocacy, and outreach. Knowledge and understanding of energy efficiency measures, methods and policy is important. Strong networking and relationship development skills are a necessity, as is an entrepreneurial and positive attitude. Familiarity with legislative and executive processes and personalities, knowledge of environmental and conservation issues, and experience in a public sector work environment are preferred.
