Current Openings

Director, Business Renewables Centre-Canada (Calgary)

The Pembina Institute is seeking a highly motivated and passionate individual to join the Alberta team to lead and grow its flagship initiative, the Business Renewables Centre Canada (BRC-Canada). This person will thrive working with — and constantly learning from — our BRC members and external stakeholders in order to facilitate market-driven, large-scale renewable energy investment in Canada.

BRC-Canada is a non-profit initiative of the Pembina Institute that works to simplify and accelerate large-scale corporate and institutional renewable energy procurement across the country. Currently, only Alberta provides the regulatory environment to facilitate these types of transactions. Even with the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, renewable energy procurement has continued to grow, and the need for innovative financing mechanisms, such as virtual power purchase agreements, will be a cornerstone of economic rebuilding efforts. We are confident in our ability to reach a goal of facilitating 2 GW of announced deals by 2025, and potentially more as other provinces take note of the private sector investment creating jobs in Alberta.

We are looking for someone energetic and resourceful with relevant market, policy and technical experience, strong communication skills, a solid work ethic and the tenacity needed to lead the BRC-Canada into the future. The candidate should have an entrepreneurial spirit and excel at building stakeholder relationships. The individual should have an understanding of how corporations function in the sustainability field and/or undertake non-core procurement.

Application deadline: 11:59 p.m. on Monday, October 26, 2020.

The Pembina Institute is an equal opportunity employer. We thank all applicants for their interest but only those selected for an interview will be contacted.

Senior Analyst, Clean Electricity (Calgary)

The Pembina Institute is seeking a highly motivated individual to join its Alberta team to develop and advocate for policy solutions that accelerate development of clean energy in Alberta and Canada. We are seeking a driven and resourceful person with relevant policy and technical experience, strong communication skills, a solid work ethic and the tenacity needed to solve Alberta’s most prominent energy challenges. The candidate should have proven experience and the ability to thrive with limited supervision.

This full-time (40 hours a week) position may require travel. We are currently seeking a senior analyst with relevant experience. This position will report to Pembina's director of clean energy.

In Alberta and Canada, we are working to advance our understanding of emerging global economic and environmental trends and their implications for the electricity sector. Canada is at a crossroads with disruptive technologies entering a dramatic growth phase. In particular, there is significant economic development and GHG reduction potential in Alberta with technologies like renewables, energy efficiency, storage, demand side management and electric vehicles.

We need smart and creative people who can work with governments, industry, Indigenous communities and the non-government sector to find solutions in these dynamic times.

Technical Director, Reframed Initiative (B.C.)

The Pembina Institute is seeking an ambitious and goal-driven individual to join its B.C. Reframed Initiative team as a Technical Director . 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 initiative brings 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, common in B.C.’s social housing and market rental housing stock.

Decarbonizing our building sector and preparing our infrastructure for a more unpredictable climate requires a paradigm shift in how we procure, finance, design, execute, and insure retrofit services. Both the provincial and federal governments are reinvesting billions of dollars to repair and upgrade our social housing infrastructure in the next ten years. This investment presents a once-in-a-generation opportunity to modernize the retrofit ecosystem so that new solutions can be deployed at scale.

We are looking for a results-oriented entrepreneurial individual able to work collaboratively to identify and demonstrate new innovative approaches to retrofit services, and to create systemic conditions allowing these approaches to be self-sustaining and deliverable at scale.
