Director Building Technologies Office ES-00
Note: This is a remote job. The position worksite must be in Continental U.S.
The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy is looking for an energetic and motivated individual to lead their Building Technologies Office who will work closely in partnership with the U.S. building and building equipment industry to advance the technology, reduce development and operating costs, and maintain a competitive position in domestic and international markets for more energy efficient and cleaner buildings. As the Director Building Technologies Office you will:
- Manage and direct the planning, development, implementation, and evaluation of a national Building Technologies Office (BTO) involving RD&D, regulatory actions, and market transformation programs. Direct the formulation and integration of the scientific, market factor, engineering and technical requirements necessary to structure an effective and impactful building technologies program.
- Provide technical and scientific leadership to the building and building equipment industry and to BTO. Work closely with U.S. industry, non-profit, advocacy groups, academia, and the National Laboratories to quickly identify technology, market and research needs required to create and grow a robust industry for the development, deployment, and adoption of energy efficient and renewable energy building technologies.
- Identify and interpret legislative requirements for the BTO, and manage the implementing activities that satisfy these needs.
- Oversee the development and implementation of building technologies transfer plans; the review, evaluation, and modification of technology transfer performance.
- Prepare and justify integrated R&D budgets across multiple DOE offices, and execute budget decisions. Serve in a similar role for EERE initiatives and corporate crosscuts as necessary, on topics such as low-GWP refrigerants, etc.
- Coordinate with other program areas to incorporate results of research projects, including renewable energy technologies, into the BTO. Coordinate with the Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) to demonstrate these technologies at DOE sites and Federal facilities.
- Manage the transfer of new technology to the building and building equipment technologies industries via public-private partnerships to which all parties contribute to the cycle of strategic input, technical concepts, funding for and participation in research and development projects, review, oversight, and feedback.
- Direct building technology RD&D and analysis investments at the National Laboratories, with leadership responsibility for the production of high-quality, transformative research into critical building technology areas.
- Direct Building Technologies Office's RD&D and analysis performed by DOE Field offices, national research laboratories, universities, and industry including critical peer review and feedback regarding technical and managerial objectives.
- Direct analyses and reviews to ensure conformance of program execution within established EERE policies and develop funding and guidance issued to field organizations and other recipients.
- Oversee the development of multi-year program plans, annual operating plans, Congressional budget requests, and guide strategic studies which influence and guide these plans. Develop annual program budget requirements, approve of and manage the use of appropriated funds, and interpretive guidance to all funded research.
- Serve as a leader for U.S. participation in matters and activities related to the international building technologies community, and the building technologies aspects of the international energy efficiency and renewable energy community, including cooperative research and development, exchanges of technical information, conferences, workshops, and summit meetings. Maintain close contact and sensitivity to the technology base and decision makers of U.S. industry to keep abreast of their accomplishments, capabilities, trends and needs, and be the focal point for governmental organization of the state of the U.S. industrial base with respect to building and building equipment technologies.
- Provide strong and effective workforce management, including skills identification, training, hiring and performance management for the BTO. Anticipate personnel requirements and put necessary mechanisms in place to ensure effective operations and succession planning. Manage the deployment of assigned staff and ensure that sufficient contract and full-time staff are available to complete program tasks at a high-performance level.
- Provide expert technical and strategic input and respond to inquiries as needed to other U.S. government offices. Interface regularly with other U.S. government agencies to ensure consistency of approach, identify synergies and eliminate inefficiencies related to building technologies. Develop responses to queries from Congressional offices, subcommittees and committees.
