Energy Foundation’s mission is to serve the public interest by building a strong clean energy economy. Energy Foundation supports education and analysis to promote non-partisan policy solutions that advance renewable energy and energy efficiency while opening doors to greater innovation and productivity—growing the economy with dramatically less pollution. We are a complex, multi-site, multicultural nonprofit organization with big plans for the future. Under the leadership of our new CEO, Energy Foundation has embarked on a major strategy refresh, a prioritized commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI), and rapid geographic expansion.
For more than 25 years, Energy Foundation has supported grantees to help educate policymakers and the general public about the benefits of a clean energy economy. Our grantees include business, health, environmental, labor, equity, community, faith, and consumer groups, as well as policy experts, think tanks, universities, and more.
Our comprehensive approach advances energy efficiency and renewable energy in the power, transportation, and building sectors. Working together, our Policy and Public Engagement programs focus on developing innovative policies and campaigns to help propel clean energy development in these sectors, while our Strategic Communications Program develops powerful narrative and communications strategies designed to build support for our work regionally and nationwide. Our States and Regions Team is a cross-disciplinary team of policy, communications, and campaign experts dedicated to advancing strong state and regional climate and clean energy policies.
Energy Foundation has a preference for this position to be located in the founding office in San Francisco, CA, but is willing to consider location in one of the regional offices in Raleigh, NC; Chicago, IL; Washington, DC; or Las Vegas, NV.
The Managing Director, States and Regions, is a newly created role that will lead the day-to-day management and operation of the Energy Foundation’s (EF’s) States and Regions program, working in coordination with other regionally and San Francisco-based EF colleagues. Reporting to the Vice President, Campaigns, the Managing Director will lead EF’s priority state program, building public support for clean energy and climate policies in states across the U.S.
