BRC-Canada is hiring!
The Pembina Institute is seeking a highly motivated and passionate individual to join the Calgary team to support one of its newest flagship initiatives, the Business Renewables Centre Canada (BRC-Canada). This person will thrive working with — and constantly learning from — our BRC members and external stakeholders in order to facilitate market-driven, large-scale renewable energy investment in Canada.
BRC-Canada (businessrenewables.ca) is a non-profit initiative of the Pembina Institute that works to simplify and accelerate large-scale corporate and institutional renewable energy procurement across the country. Currently, only Alberta provides the regulatory environment to facilitate these types of transactions. Even with the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, renewable energy procurement has continued to grow, and the need for innovative financing mechanisms, such as virtual power purchase agreements, will be a cornerstone of economic rebuilding efforts. We are confident in our ability to reach a goal of facilitating 2 GW of announced deals by 2025, and potentially more as other provinces take note of the private sector investment creating jobs in Alberta.
We are looking for someone energetic and resourceful with relevant renewable market and policy experience, strong communication skills, a solid work ethic and the creativity needed to support this relatively new initiative. The candidate should have an entrepreneurial spirit and excel at building stakeholder relationships. Ideally, the individual should have an understanding of how corporations function in the sustainability field and/or how they undertake non-core renewables procurement.
This position offers the opportunity to establish working relationships with energy professionals who are renewable buyers, developers and intermediaries across Canada and in the US, and contribute directly to addressing global climate change by scaling up the deployment of renewable energy.
