Job Description

The Joint Institute for Strategic Energy Analysis (JISEA) conducts leading-edge interdisciplinary research and provides objective and credible data, tools, and analysis to guide global energy investment and policy decisions.

The Clean Energy Manufacturing Analysis Center (CEMAC) is operated by JISEA. CEMAC conducts objective, credible, and recurring analysis on global clean energy manufacturing to inform choices to promote the transition to a clean energy economy.

JISEA/CEMAC is now seeking an intern to support in core work areas. The intern will be undertaking cutting-edge research and analysis support on areas of importance to clean energy manufacturing. Intern will be named as contributor or supporter in the outputs they make substantive contributions to, and will benefit from interactions with energy technology experts. They will work under the direct guidance from the CEMAC leadership team, and have access to colleagues conducting world-class level analysis and research. The intern should be highly motivated and excel in their area of study.

Job Duties

With guidance from management and senior staff, the intern will assist in the conducting data and information collection, synthesis, analysis, and presentation. They will support the development of research presentations and reports examining the manufacturing of clean energy technologies, including their supply chains, value add, financing, contribution to local and global economies, environmental stewardship, and decision and market dynamics. Their work will serve to support robust and analytically-sound technoeconomic analysis on individual technology topics (such as solar, wind, hydro, batteries, efficient building technologies, and clean transportation) as well as how manufacturing contributes to local and national economic development and how innovation ecosystems support manufacturing. Tasks will vary and may include: deep literature research to compile data and information about manufacturing, identifying data sources and extracting information, supporting interviews of manufacturers, managing complex datasets, developing spreadsheets and models, preparing graphics and presentations, writing summary materials about findings, and supporting report preparation.
