New York City Department of Citywide Administrative Services
Deputy Director, Capital Project Development
Salary: $52,137 - $105,000 (Annually)
The Department of Citywide Administrative Services’ (“DCAS”) Division of Energy Management (“DEM”) serves as the energy management hub for City government operations. DEM develops the City’s annual Heat, Light, and Power Budget; manage the City’s electricity, natural gas, and steam accounts; help our agency partners identify and pursue energy-saving opportunities at their buildings; fund and manage energy efficiency and clean power generation projects across the City’s portfolio; and implement operations and maintenance (O&M) best practices.
DEM is tasked with leading the City’s efforts to reduce greenhouse gas (“GHG”) emissions by 80 percent by 2050 from a 2005 baseline (“80 x 50”). The City also has set a near-term goal to reduce GHG emissions from government buildings by a minimum of 35 percent by 2025 (“35 x 25”). DEM is looking to both demand- and supply-side initiatives to accomplish these goals. The successful development and implementation of energy efficiency projects across the City’s portfolio of buildings, including deep energy retrofits, is an essential part of these efforts.
With wide latitude for the exercise of independent judgment and initiative, the Deputy Director will be charged with the following:
• Create portfolio-wide GHG emissions reduction plans: Work with client agency representatives to aggregate facility condition assessments, utility data, energy audits, operations and maintenance needs, feasibility studies, and capital plans into a multiyear strategy to achieve targeted GHG emissions reduction targets across each agency’s building portfolio.
• Manage energy efficiency project scoping: Review and comment on completed energy audits, feasibility studies, facility condition assessments, and other energy-related reports on municipal buildings to help guide project selection, work scope development, and alternatives analysis. Identify opportunities to improve the energy and GHG impacts of non-energy-driven capital projects, and secure partner agency support for cost-effective scope changes and additions.
• Improve tools and methodologies for measuring the impacts of common energy efficiency measures: Collaborate with other Operations staff and DEM units to develop consistent methodologies for evaluating and prioritizing energy efficiency measures across the municipal building portfolio. Drive the continuous improvement and dissemination of portfolio-level tools for calculating projected energy savings, including DEM’s Climate Action Planning Tool, using the results from project implementation and measurement and verification activities.
• Coordinate with agency partners and consultants: Represent DEM in meetings with different City agencies, Mayoral offices, consultants, and utilities involved in municipal GHG emissions reduction, energy efficiency project development and implementation, and related policymaking, data generation and management, and budgeting. Oversee development of critical communication materials and guidance documents. Apply for and manage relevant grant funding from partners such as the C40 Cities Initiatives.
• Supervise staff and consultants responsible for data collection and analysis, tracking, and reporting: Supervise the work of an Energy Engineer and Energy Analyst responsible for reporting in a range of areas, including progress toward agency GHG reduction goals; measurement and verification of energy savings and avoided emissions; and contributions of DEM resources towards the City’s goals. Initiate and manage consultant task orders as required to support this work.
