WORKING AT THE OREGON DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY
At the Oregon Department of Energy, we're helping shape the state's energy future. Our team is dedicated to keeping Oregon on the leading edge of renewable energy and efficiency while supporting energy innovation, investment, equity, and resilience. From helping Oregonians save energy at home; to overseeing the state's interests in the world's largest environmental cleanup at the Hanford nuclear site in Washington, our work is challenging, rewarding, and diverse. We work with developers and communities on proposed energy facilities, with schools and manufacturers looking to save energy and money, and with other agencies and stakeholders on meeting the challenges of climate change. Oregon is one of the most energy-efficient states in the country, routinely landing near the top of annual national rankings. ODOE is committed to helping Oregon remain an energy leader, and that starts with hiring engaged team members ready to deliver for all Oregonians.
The Energy Planning & Innovation (P&I) Division supports the agency mission by pursuing programs and policies that help Oregonians conserve energy, use energy more efficiently, and produce energy using renewable sources. The Division’s two sections: Energy Efficiency & Conservation and Energy Technology & Policy collaborate with the Department’s other divisions and stakeholders to help support the development of clean energy resources and integrate those resources into the State’s transmission and distribution system. The division offers energy expertise across sectors, including efficiency in buildings and manufacturing as well as alternative fuels and infrastructure, while helping Oregon build a more resilient energy system – one that is well prepared to respond to issues such as climate change and natural disasters. The division also helps the State pursue strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through energy efficiency, renewable energy, and sustainable transportation.
