The Pembina Institute is seeking a highly motivated individual to join its Buildings program as an analyst. This position would advance our ongoing work on energy efficiency policies to support decarbonization of existing and new buildings across the country — a critical target for Canada to meet its net zero emissions goal by 2050.
We are seeking a highly driven and resourceful person with two to five years of relevant technical experience, strong analytical skills, knowledge of climate and energy policy with respect to existing and new buildings, an understanding of the challenges and opportunities associated with decarbonizing Canada’s building stock, a solid work ethic, and a persistent drive to solve Canada's most prominent sustainability challenges.
The Pembina Institute is providing research and analysis along with impactful policy and regulatory guidance to make Canadian homes and buildings energy efficient, low-carbon, healthy, safe, and resilient. This role will require engagement with diverse stakeholders, including Indigenous, provincial, and federal governments, private and crown utilities, Indigenous communities, industry, and non-governmental organizations. The goal is to accelerate deep retrofits and a transition to low-carbon energy systems for space and water heating through transformation of market supply and demand forces and the regulatory and finance conditions needed to support a new retrofit economy.
This full-time position is anticipated to start in September 2022 and could be based out of any of our offices in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Ottawa, or Toronto. The Pembina Institute features a hybrid workplace that does not require employees to be in an office full-time. The successful candidate will report to the Buildings program manager, and will work closely with senior analysts and the program director.
