Department of Energy Opportunity

The Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) Science, Technology and Policy (STP) Program serves as a next step in the educational and professional development of scientists and engineers by providing opportunities to participate in policy-related projects at DOE’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy in Washington, D.C.  Participants will become part of a group of highly-trained scientists and engineers with the education, background, and experience to be part of the workforce that supports the DOE’s mission in the future.

The participant will engage and collaborate with the Weatherization Intergovernmental Programs Office (OWIP) to identify policies and best practices in state and local governments, utilities and public utility commissions, and weatherization agencies that can be shared with and adopted by grantees and stakeholders of OWIP’s energy efficiency and renewable initiatives. The participant should bring a strong interest to develop in providing solutions for low-income communities and other under-served areas.
