Global Warming Campus Internship
Make a difference on global warming and clean energy this fall.
Work from campus, 4-7 hours/week.
Global warming is happening and we’re seeing the effects all around us — from dangerous heat waves and droughts to last winter’s snowstorms. And scientists warn it could get much worse unless we act soon.
The good news: we have the solutions. Solar power is taking off, and we’re beginning to harvest energy from the winds off our shores.
But powerful interests, including utility companies and the fossil fuel industry, are threatening to stop clean energy in its tracks.
We’re looking for smart, hard-working students to build the people power it will take to repower Massachusetts with clean energy. Interns will work 4-7 hours per week from campus.
Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnerships (NEEP) seeks qualified candidates for an intern position for its DesignLights
Consortium® (DLC) project either for the semester, or full-time. Interns will work with the DLC team, reporting to the
DLC Program Manager. This job is based in Lexington, MA. Reliable transportation is helpful. Public transport is limited,
but available. Some field travel is also possible.
DLC is the industry’s resource for information and cutting edge technical expertise on energy efficient commercial solid
state lighting solutions. The DLC Qualified Products List (QPL) is NEEP’s largest initiative, serving as a key resource for
energy efficiency incentive programs throughout the US and Canada by distinguishing high performing and energy
saving lighting products from the rest. DLC engages its members (utilities and other energy efficiency programs) with
government agencies, lighting experts, lighting product manufacturers, and lighting testing labs to establish technical
requirements that manufacturers must meet to list their products on the QPL.
Develop and implement a comprehensive approach for the management of energy consumption at Smith College. Continually improve energy efficiency, reduce energy consumption, reduce the college’s greenhouse gas emissions, and align this program with available utility, state, federal, and regional utility incentive programs. Achieve results through cooperation and collaboration with other offices including Facilities Management and the Office of Campus Sustainability.
The Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) seeks a clean energy intern to work in its office in Boston starting in September 2015. MAPC is a regional planning agency serving the people who live and work in Metropolitan Boston. The clean energy intern will have significant research responsibilities and will work directly with the Clean Energy Division team to develop and implement MAPC’s energy projects throughout the MAPC region.
A motivated individual is needed to help organize the City’s 6th annual Harvest Your Energy Festival.
