IN-13061 Renewable Energy Intern – Scaling up corporate demand for renewable energy
Intern sought to help research and advance corporate demand for renewable energy. Companies have significant potential to drive voluntary use of renewable energy; many have set specific goals to increase renewable energy use and are making progress toward meeting them but are also encountering barriers. WWF’s renewable energy work is focused on helping companies overcome barriers to scaling up their use of renewable energy, including addressing awareness, policy, finance and accounting barriers. Internship responsibilities will focus on gathering information and data on corporate renewable energy demand, related goals, and corporate progress in meeting goals. Some research and analysis may also be required on policy and green power programs.
The successful applicant will have an interdisciplinary background in environmental policy, renewable energy, climate change, business sustainability and/or corporate social responsibility. Position requires excellent research and writing skills, with a preference for experience in renewable energy and business engagement. Must be able to work efficiently and independently, remaining flexible to tasks and shifting priorities.
Unpaid. For all unpaid internships, applicants must be enrolled in school and be able to obtain academic course credit from their university.
