Senior Communications Lead, Business Renewables Centre-Canada (Calgary/Edmonton)

The Pembina Institute is seeking a strategic thinker with strong outreach and engagement skills to join our communications team. This position requires strong interpersonal skills, positive energy, a high degree of organization, and the ability to thrive in a fast-moving environment. The successful candidate will work with the Industrial Decarbonization policy group, mainly focusing on supporting the Business Renewables Centre-Canada (BRC-Canada).

BRC-Canada is an initiative of the Pembina Institute that specializes in expanding the proportion of renewable energy in Canada’s electricity grid. It is focused on education and raising awareness among companies and public institutions interested in executing power purchase agreements with wind and solar energy developers. When BRC-Canada was founded in 2019, we set an ambitious goal of adding 2 gigawatts worth of renewable energy to Canada’s grid by 2025. Just a few months into 2022, we hit that target — three years ahead of schedule. This is an exciting moment to join an organization that is making a real-world impact to Canada’s emissions trajectory.

The ideal candidate understands Alberta’s energy and business landscape. They are aware of the diverse sectors in our economy and can leverage that knowledge to communicate the value proposition of BRC-Canada to potential new buyers of renewable energy. The senior communications lead is also the point of contact for journalists and other external partners, as well as the instigator of mainstream, social and digital media efforts on priority issues. Reporting to a communications manager, and working closely with policy directors and analysts, the senior communications lead has experience with digital outreach/e-communications (such as the branding of website content and newsletters), and experience in digital publishing.

The ideal candidate has the aptitude and interest to learn complex information about the renewables sector and power purchase agreements, and eventually synthesize it into understandable formats and tailor it for specific audiences, especially business readers. They will be passionate about Canadian energy and climate issues and possess a deep interest in the Pembina Institute’s programs focusing on decarbonizing energy production.

This person should be available to work from one of the Pembina Institute’s offices in Alberta (Calgary or Edmonton). Pembina’s workplace is a hybrid system that does not require employees to be in an office full time.

Analyst, Electricity (Calgary, Edmonton, Ottawa, Toronto)

The Pembina Institute is seeking a highly motivated individual to join its electricity team, and support the team’s work in analyzing and advocating for policy solutions for grid decarbonization.

Our electricity work is focused on Alberta, Ontario, Saskatchewan, and nationally. The positions may be based in Calgary, Edmonton, Ottawa or Toronto.

Canada’s electricity sector is at a nexus, with new and disruptive technologies entering a dramatic growth phase. There is also a remarkable policy window currently open in this sector at all levels of government, as administrations begin to take meaningful steps towards decarbonizing Canada’s electricity grid.

Joining the Pembina Institute at this pivotal moment will give the right candidate the chance to help chart a competitive and low-carbon future for Canada that brings economic growth and establishes the country as an international leader on low-carbon electricity.

We need smart and creative people who can work with governments, industry, Indigenous communities, and the non-government sector to advance solutions in line with the demands of these interesting and dynamic times. We are seeking a driven and resourceful person with relevant technical experience, strong communication skills, a solid work ethic, and the tenacity needed to help solve Canada’s most prominent energy challenges. The candidate should have proven experience and the ability to thrive with limited supervision.
