The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) is seeking a Residential Energy Policy Analyst.
The Residential Energy Policy Analyst will be responsible for recommending and effectively implementing policy to deliver energy efficiency to residential customers. Multi-family buildings continue to be a difficult to treat segment of the energy efficiency market. On June 3, 2021, CPUC voted to invest $441 million, or $80 million annually for 2021-2026, for scaling up whole building weatherization for income qualified customers in multi-family buildings. The draft 2021 energy efficiency potential and goals study forecasts that market rate residential building stock holds 52% of opportunity for electricity reduction from all California buildings. In 2021, $177 million or 28% of the approved EE budget across residential, commercial, industrial, agricultural, and public sectors is dedicated to reducing residential sector energy consumption. The Residential Energy Analyst’s responsibilities cut across both of income qualified and market rate initiatives.
The position may be filled in Sacramento, Los Angeles, or San Francisco.
