Policy Analyst / Renewable Energy
At Catalyze, we’re on a mission to accelerate the nationwide transition to clean, renewable energy. If you’re passionate about creating a meaningful impact on one of the greatest challenges of human existence (we’re looking at you, climate change), we want you on our team.
As a Renewable Energy Policy Analyst, you will report to the CFO and work with our project development, legal and finance teams across many jurisdictions to research, identify and articulate the details of regulatory change and incentive programs. Candidates should bring a combination of hands-on, practical know-how about how to develop renewable energy projects along with research skills and intellectual curiosity to stay on top of our everchanging policy landscape at both state and federal levels.
Our areas of development focus mostly on the commercial and industrial (C&I) sectors of solar PV generation with battery energy storage and electric vehicle charging but also can include community solar and some wholesale strategy components. Additionally, you will be responsible for researching and analyzing standards and benchmarks for environmental, sustainability and governance (ESG) reporting.
