Energy Engineer

The Energy Center of Wisconsin is seeking an energy engineer with a desire to apply both reason and creativity towards the creation of a sustainable energy society. We are a private non-profit organization that is mission-driven, independent, and objective. We seek practical solution paths among a world of competing interests.

The individual will be responsible for the evaluation of energy efficiency and renewable energy strategies in buildings and campus settings, including quantifying energy system performance, life cycle cost economics, and emissions reduction potential. Experience with energy modeling software such as eQuest, TRYNSYS, TRACE, or other similar environments is highly desirable, including the ability to model novel or complex energy systems and develop specialized energy analysis software.

The individual will be responsible for identifying, quantifying, and optimizing energy savings opportunities during early building design stages and for existing facilities. Knowledge of relevant building energy codes, green building rating systems, and ASHRAE standards is highly desirable.

The candidate should possess the ability to work in a team environment, including communications skills such as report writing, client contact and public presentations. The ability to summarize and communicate technical concepts to a non-technical audience is highly valued. The candidate should also possess fundamental project management skills such as project planning, budgeting, and the ability to achieve project goals and deadlines.

Minimum requirements are a bachelor's degree in engineering, preferably mechanical, and a fundamental knowledge of building energy systems, energy analysis, and thermal science. Ideal candidates will possess a master's degree in mechanical engineering with a thermal science focus, professional engineering registration, LEED Accreditation, Energy Manager Certification, and possess 5+ years design firm or facilities experience with energy systems in commercial or institutional facilities.

We offer a competitive salary, progressive work environment and excellent benefits. Interested candidates should send or email a resume, cover letter and any salary expectations (no phone calls please) to:
