Civil Service Title: CITY RESEARCH SCIENTIST
Business Title: Energy Performance Analyst
Work Location: 1 Centre St., N.Y.
Division/Work Unit: Office of Energy Conservation
Number of Positions: 1
Job ID: 391359
The Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS) Division of Energy Management (DEM) serves as the hub for energy management for City government operations. Today, we develop 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; do 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 35 percent by 2025 (35 x 25). In addition, due to Executive Order 26, the City has set a goal to reduce energy usage from City buildings a further 20% from 2016 levels by 2025. To meet these goals, DEM is committed to collaborating very closely with our agency partners to help them achieve major emissions reductions in their buildings. We actively are working to provide our agency partners with the energy efficiency and clean energy project funding, project delivery vehicles, technical expertise, staff resources, strategic planning support, and data analytics that they need to succeed. DEM seeks to hire an Energy Performance Analyst to serve within our Operations Unit, which is responsible for overseeing the development and delivery of energy efficiency and clean energy projects to meet City goals.
The Energy Performance Analyst will work within the Capital Project Development team, which supports DEM's efforts to work with agency partners to create a strategic multi-year funding plan for energy efficiency capital projects. This work includes developing procedures and tools to help agencies effectively prioritize their buildings for energy efficiency capital investments and supporting agency partners in achieving successful integration between their multi-year funding plans and their capital improvement plans.
The Analyst will be responsible for supporting project development through data analyses of City facilities with a high potential for significant greenhouse gas emissions reductions, energy use decreases, and cost savings. With wide latitude for the exercise of independent judgment and initiative, the Analyst will be charged with the following:
Data collection and data management support for capital project development: Mine existing data to help identify new opportunities and priorities for DEM investment in energy efficiency projects, and estimate the cumulative impact of these projects.
Climate Action Planning Tool management: Work with the Operations
and Strategic Planning Units to beta test the tool, supervise the consultants providing modifications, roll out the tool citywide and instruct client agency partners in its use. Analysis of portfolio energy performance: Perform statistical analyses of building energy performance,greenhouse gas emissions, and related metrics and their correlation with building characteristics such as use, age, and construction type;
Guideline and internal policy development: Develop conceptual frameworks, written guidelines, and presentations for portfolio-level
capital plan analysis, energy conservation measure prioritization, and other strategies critical to achieving DEM goals;
Policy and legislative support: Provide comprehensive data analyses to inform DEM participation in citywide public policy development, compare different legislative solutions, and fulfill compliance reporting requirements.
