The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) is the nation's most effective environmental action organization. We use law, science and the support of 3.1 million members and online activists to protect the planet's wildlife and wild places and to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all living things. NRDC was founded in 1970 and our staff helped write some of America's bedrock environmental laws, including the Clean Water Act, and many of the implementing regulations; our water enforcement cases played a major role shaping current water policy throughout the country. Today, our staff of more than 500 lawyers, scientists, economists, policy and communications experts, and others, work out of offices in New York, Washington, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Bozeman, Montana, and Beijing.
NRDC is seeking an experienced advocate and power sector expert to advance our work on federal electricity and utility policy (electric and gas). This position will be focused on administrative action under the Clean Air Act and new legislation to advance clean energy deployment incentives, standards, and other clean energy and carbon market policies. A strong background in utility regulatory policy and clean energy and carbon market design is essential. Advocacy and lobbying experience are also needed to secure necessary stakeholder and policymaker support, and experience working with diverse viewpoints is required. This senior team member will join the federal side of the Climate & Clean Energy Program in Washington, DC.
Depending on the management experience and interest of the candidates, the role may be defined as management position or as a senior individual contributor. A management role would require functional management of a team of advocates and a budget.
