Undergraduate Energy Policy & Business Outreach Internship

The Clean Energy Project will be hosting a series of convenings about clean energy policies that will affect Nevada’s business community in the spring of 2018 to inform the Interim Legislative Committee on Energy and other policy makers. Meeting summaries and recommendations from these convenings will be incorporated into white papers. Working with CEP’s Executive Director and Director of Program and Communications, the undergraduate intern(s) will help organize these convenings by:

  • Drafting meeting announcements and pre-meeting materials;
  • Identifying possible attendees and speakers;
  • Coordinating meeting logistics;
  • Taking meeting notes;
  • Communicating with attendees before and after meetings; and
  • Writing summary materials.

Working with the graduate student intern and the Executive Director, the undergraduate interns will also help research the issue areas for convenings and help draft fact sheets and other materials to inform the discussions with the business community. Students must be able to devote at least 2 full days or 3 half days a week to the internship.

Application Instructions: Please send a resumé, cover letter and two references, academic or professional, to cep@cleanenergyprojectnv.org.

 

Graduate Energy Policy Research Internship

The biggest energy policy challenge facing Nevada policy-makers over the next year is the possible deregulation/restructuring of the state’s electricity market if voters approve the Energy Choice ballot initiative again. The Clean Energy Project will produce a series of research products to inform this debate, including fact sheets and white papers, as well as summaries of convenings of Nevada business interests around discrete policy questions. Working closely with the Executive Director and a coalition of national experts on electricity deregulation, the graduate intern will conduct comparative analyses of key policy issues across states that have already deregulated their electricity markets to create retail competition. The graduate student will work closely with the Executive Director to identify research questions, develop analytical approaches, identify potential research partners, conduct the analyses, and write white papers for policy makers. This position requires excellent writing skills, an analytical mind, and interest in energy policy.
