The State of Connecticut, Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP), Office of Climate Planning currently has an opening for a Research Analyst position to support Connecticut’s Climate Action through the planning and implementation of climate mitigation strategies and policy to ensure Connecticut meets its carbon emissions reduction goals across all sectors. Such strategies include, but are not limited to, advancing plans to incentivize the use of zero emission vehicles, increase energy efficiency, decarbonize buildings, and provide a zero-carbon electric supply by 2040.
The Office of Climate Planning has a collaborative work environment with a team-based approach to most projects. The Research Analyst for climate mitigation strategies will report to the Director of the Office of Climate Planning and work in partnership with the members of the climate planning team and the other programs in the Office of the Commissioner, including the Offices of Environmental Justice, Planning and Program Development, Communications, and Governmental Affairs. The Research Analyst for climate mitigation strategies will coordinate their projects most closely with staff in the agency’s Bureau of Energy and Technology Policy in the Energy Branch and the Bureau of Air Management in the Environmental Quality Branch (see DEEP’s structure and mission).
