Senior Transportation Electrification Analyst - JC-375089
Energy Efficiency Branch/Procurement and Portfolio Management Section:
Established in 1911, the California Public Utilities Commission is leading California’s efforts to achieve reliable, safe, and affordable service, while meeting California's ambitious climate goals. The Transportation Electrification Section is in search of dynamic, creative team members to assist in the coordination and planning needed for identifying and authorizing critical vehicle charging infrastructure.
As the State agency that regulates electric utilities, the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) plays an integral part in the achievement of the State's goals of transforming the transportation sector to zero-emission vehicles. Planning for the electric infrastructure needed for transportation electrification over the next 20 years will be challenging because it will require balancing the needs of the transportation sector versus the electric sector’s needs (e.g., reliability of electric service, affordability of rate, air quality, climate adaptation, equity, and resiliency).
Under the close supervision of the Project and Program Supervisor, the senior transportation electrification analyst will support the Transportation Electrification Section in the development of work products that are used to advise and assist high-level decision-makers such as Commissioners, Judges, and Energy Division management. The senior analyst will primarily oversee the development of analytical products that support the forecasting and planning for transportation electrification infrastructure needs. The senior analyst will collaborate with demand forecasting, resource, and infrastructure planning teams at the CPUC, California Energy Commission (CEC), California Independent System Operator (CAISO) and California Resources Board (CARB) and utility staff to develop analytical products that support the forecasting and planning for transportation electrification infrastructure needs. Other responsibilities include verifying compliance with ratemaking proceedings, CPUC rules and policies, reviewing and analyzing advice letters, and preparing appropriate dispositions. The analyst will develop policy and regulatory white papers and proposals, lead workshops, meet, and collaborate with utilities and other stakeholders and oversee the work of consultants.
The successful candidate will demonstrate strong communication skills, the ability to manage complex multi-disciplinary projects, lead teams of analysts, perform well under pressure, and demonstrate creativity and problem-solving abilities. If energy or environmental sustainability is your passion, and you want to take an active part in the transformation of the transportation sector in California, we encourage you to apply for this position.
