The Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE) is seeking a motivated, organized individual to serve as an intern and support its Evaluation, Research, and Behavior (ERB) Sector work, with a focus on behavior. The ERB team supports CEE members and works with government and non-government agencies throughout the US and Canada to help improve the application of behavioral insights and program evaluation in the energy efficiency industry. This intern will work in the ERB sector (team of five, including one other intern) and report to the Senior Program Manager for Behavior, Kira Ashby.
CEE is an award-winning consortium of efficiency program administrators from the United States and Canada that unifies program approaches across jurisdictions to increase impact in fragmented markets. By joining forces at CEE, individual electric and gas efficiency programs are able to partner not only with each other, but also with other industries, trade associations, and government agencies. Working together, administrators leverage the effect of their ratepayer funding, exchange information on successful practices and, by doing so, achieve greater energy efficiency for the public good.
- Gather and organize information on members’ energy efficiency programs that employ behavioral approaches and the related evaluations. This information will be used to develop a set of key takeaways from these programs as well as a set of case studies highlighting programs that exemplify tried and true behavioral techniques or innovative programs with promising initial findings. This work will include providing quality assurance for data and following up with members via phone and email to ensure that their work is accurately represented.
- Collect information on regulatory decisions that impact energy efficiency program administrators’ ability to claim savings from their behavioral programs.
- Assist with preparation for ERB Committee meetings and webinars, including generating committee lists and taking notes during meetings.
- Provide administrative support to other ERB team staff as they develop documents, reports, website content, or other work
The internship would potentially start in late May or early June 2019 and continue through August or early September 2019.
