The Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) Science, Technology and Policy (STP) Program serves as a next step in the educational and professional development of scientists and engineers by providing opportunities to participate in policy-related projects at DOE's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy in Washington, D.C. Participants will become part of a group of highly-trained scientists and engineers with the education, background, and experience to be part of the workforce that supports the DOE's mission in the future.
We are looking for dynamic, innovative fellows for the Joint Office of Energy and Transportation (“Joint Office”) a new office funded under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) to coordinate and leverage activities across the Department of Energy and Department of Transportation. The mission of the Joint Office is to accelerate an electrified transportation system that is affordable, convenient, equitable, reliable, and safe. The Joint Office will harness a broad range of public and private sector expertise to accelerate transportation electrification, lower emissions and enable new economic and workforce opportunities to create a resilient and sustainable transportation future by making Electronic Vehicles (EVs) an easy choice for everyone. The Joint Office of Energy and Transportation applies a collaborative interagency approach to support the investment in and deployment of a convenient, reliable, affordable, accessible, and equitable national EV charging network supporting the successful execution of BIL funds for (1) states to build a national EV charging network along corridors, (2) community EV charging, (3) low- and no-emission transit buses, and (4) electric school buses. The Office portfolio includes technical/equity assistance and capacity building; development and support of program guidance, standards, and requirements; proof-of-concept demonstrations; stakeholder engagement; and program and equity evaluation for the deployment of the EV charging network and other electrification investments in the BIL.
