Full Text of JOE Listing:

With world attention focused on both the environment and the economy, EDF is where policymakers and business leaders turn for win-win solutions. This leading green group, with programs from Boston to Beijing, has tripled in size over the past decade by focusing on strong science, uncommon partnerships and market-based approaches.

EDF’s Clean Energy Program is transforming the U.S. electricity system by rewriting outdated regulations, spurring energy services markets, and modernizing our century-old electric grid from a system of centralized, fossil fuel power plants to an intelligent, connected network that smoothly integrates clean energy resources. We are fostering a smart grid that empowers customers to lower their utility bills by expanding choices for more resilient, efficient, and cleaner electricity.

EDF has an opening for a Clean Energy Economist who will conduct in depth economic analysis to help shape the organization’s policy positions and support its advocacy. Such analysis will include original publishable research, “in-house” analyses for use by other staff within the organization, as well as white papers aimed at policy makers, journalists, and the public at large.
