VEIC is a sustainable energy company on a mission to generate the energy solutions the world needs. For more than 30 years, VEIC has worked with governments, utilities, foundations, and businesses across North America to design and deploy clean-energy services spanning energy efficiency, building decarbonization, transportation electrification, and a clean and flexible grid.
VEIC seeks a Senior Consultant to lead our team’s work on the California Technology and Equipment for Clean Heating (TECH) initiative. This 4-year program is aimed at identifying and implementing pathways to electrify residential buildings statewide.
VEIC administers three major sustainable energy programs and provides full-service consulting and engineering services. VEIC is nationally recognized for originating pilots and programs that optimize energy use, reduce energy burdens for low-income customers, and advance emerging technologies and innovative program models. VEIC’s work to date will produce lifetime customer energy savings of over 42 million MMBTUs and fossil fuel consumption cost savings of over $4.2 billion. Its on-the-ground energy efficiency and renewable energy services have prevented the release of over 22 million metric tons of CO2 into the earth’s atmosphere.
VEIC administers Efficiency Vermont, the nation’s first statewide “energy efficiency utility,” the District of Columbia Sustainable Energy Utility (DCSEU), and Efficiency Smart in Columbus, Ohio. VEIC is headquartered in Winooski, Vermont, with offices in Washington, DC, and Columbus, Ohio, and remote staff locations across North America and Europe.
The Senior Consultant will have the opportunity to establish VEIC’s on-the-ground presence in California through leadership of our work on the TECH program. The program will use a multi-pronged strategy to electrify residential buildings statewide, including strong coordination with HVAC contractors and equipment suppliers; identification of existing programs and financing products that could offset the costs of electrification; and piloting new approaches and technologies. VEIC is a subcontractor to Energy Solutions, an employee owned company we have partnered with for the last four years on a variety of projects. VEIC’s role on the TECH team is to provide cross-cutting strategy leadership, policy and regulatory support, and oversee the implementation of pilots and “quick start” grants.
