VEIC is a sustainable energy company on a mission to generate the energy solutions the world needs. For more than 30 years, VEIC has worked with governments, utilities, foundations, and businesses across North America to design and deploy clean-energy services spanning energy efficiency, building decarbonization, transportation electrification, and a clean and flexible grid.
VEIC seeks a Senior Consultant to lead our team’s work on the California Statewide Electric Emerging Technologies Program (SWEETP). This 6-year program is aimed at identifying, evaluating, and testing new electric technologies that help advance California’s energy efficiency and decarbonization goals. The program encompasses electric energy efficiency technologies, as well as demand flexibility and non-energy decarbonization (e.g., refrigerants), across all markets (residential, commercial, industrial, low-income). It addresses the following technology categories: HVAC, water heating, whole building, process loads, plug loads and appliances, and lighting.
VEIC administers three large-scale energy efficiency and decarbonization programs and provides full-service consulting and engineering services. VEIC is nationally recognized for originating pilots and programs that optimize energy use, reduce energy burdens for low-income customers, and advance emerging technologies and innovative program models. VEIC is currently working on the TECH Clean California program, which is advancing electrification of water and space heating in residential buildings statewide.
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’ll 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.
Qualified candidates from all locations in California will be considered.
