Green-e® Outreach Analyst

Full-Time (Permanent)

Posting Date: November 23rd, 2022

Application Deadline: Ongoing (Open until filled)

Center for Resource Solutions (CRS) is 501(c)(3) nonprofit that promotes policy and market-based solutions to advance sustainable energy in the U.S. and internationally. CRS’s work engages stakeholders across the sustainable energy sector, including renewable electricity users, sellers, government, and other NGOs through its education, technical assistance, and policy-focused programs and outreach. CRS also administers the market-leading Green-e® programs, which offer independent environmental and consumer protection standards and certification for buyers and producers of renewable electricity, such as utility green power programs, carbon offsets and biomethane.

As the public’s awareness of the impacts of pollution arising from electricity generation, energy security issues, and sustainable economic development has risen, the demand for renewable energy has increased greatly.  Voluntary certified renewable energy sales in the U.S. have increased an average of 17% each year since 2016, and CRS’s Green-e® Certification program currently certifies over 2.5% of the total U.S. electricity mix, or enough to power four out of every five U.S. households for a month. Almost half of the installed wind capacity in the U.S. is participating in Green-e® Energy certified transactions, and 2020 saw over 6.6 million MWh come from solar generation – the amount of which has grown exponentially in just a few years.  This position is a chance to join a leading clean energy nonprofit organization and work on a program whose growth mirrors the dynamic renewable energy market.
