This internship will support Efficiency Vermont’s research into new uses of smart meter data and other data sources to identify customer energy savings opportunities. The project might investigate structural, temporal, and/or behavioral characteristics apparent in smart meter data that signal opportunities for energy efficiency, evaluate the drivers for success in participation in an Efficiency Vermont program, develop models for energy use that account for the effects of confounding variables, or even investigate the signature and effects of certain equipment operating in a building or home as seen through energy data. A candidate that can creatively analyze data and ensure high quality energy data analysis to staff and other key stakeholders will excel in this role. They will partner with a team of people committed to inclusive and high-impact work while contributing to a mission-driven, creative, enjoyable, and stimulating work environment.
We are committed to building a work community that is inclusive and represents a vibrant diversity of background, experience, perspective, and thought. Climate change impacts all of us; however, we are impacted differently based on our identities and experiences. We all deserve a place at the table to make decisions about our collective future – we hope you will consider joining us as we work towards our vision for a healthy planet, thriving people, and energy justice.
Candidates across all markers of identity (age, race, gender, ability, communication style, etc.) are highly encouraged to apply.
• Use analytical tools to develop useful information from available data sources, such as Smart Meter (AMI) data, sub-meter and other sensor data, building operations and production data, public data, etc., in support of efficiency projects.
• Conduct exploratory analysis of large datasets, drawing insight and value from complex data using statistical tools in the Python programming language.
• Completion of data analysis reports in support of business plans, initiatives and other programs.
• Delivery of intricate ideas in an organized manner to stakeholders, in both written and presentation format.
Internal - Work is normally performed in climate controlled office environment, where exposure to conditions of extreme heat/cold, poor ventilation, fumes and gases is very limited. Noise level is moderate and includes sounds of normal office equipment (computers, telephones, etc.). No known environmental hazards are encountered in normal performance of job duties.
External - No travel is required.
Company will provide adaptive devices as needed.
