Business Strategy Lead, Deep resiliency retrofits (Vancouver)

The Pembina Institute is seeking an ambitious and goal-driven individual to join its B.C. team as a Business Strategy Lead. We are assembling a market development team to accelerate the commercialization of ‘deep resiliency’ retrofits: integrated approaches to building retrofits that eliminate carbon pollution, increase extreme weather and earthquake resilience, improve indoor air quality, and preserve affordability. Inspired by the Dutch Energiesprong program (energiesprong.eu), this five-year initiative will bring together service providers, building owners, regulators, and financiers to pilot innovative approaches to retrofits and establish conditions for replication at scale. The initial focus will be on low-rise wood frame buildings, a common archetype in B.C.’s social housing and market rental housing stock.

The Business Strategy Lead is responsible for developing a sustainable business case for the deep energy retrofit of low-rise multi-unit residential buildings. Integrating the perspective of solution providers, building owners, lenders, utilities, and governments, the incumbent will work with these audiences to demonstrate new technologies and create systemic conditions allowing these solutions to be self-sustaining and deliverable at scale.
