Manager, Building Energy Codes and Policy

The Institute for Market Transformation (IMT) seeks a dynamic individual to join our program team to drive market adoption of decarbonized, high-performing buildings. The Manager of Building Energy Codes and Policy will contribute significantly to one or more of IMT’s areas of work, including the implementation of IMT’s energy codes strategy and the adoption of decarbonization policy in achieving climate and equity goals. The Manager reports to the Associate Director for Codes and Technical Strategy and works collaboratively throughout the organization.

The Manager will support IMT and the Energy Efficient Codes Coalition (EECC), a project under IMT, in the effort to increase energy efficiency and facilitate decarbonization of the built environment through the intersection of codes and building performance policy. The individual is not required to have direct experience in building codes, but should have a solid grasp of the building design and construction process. The role will provide an exciting opportunity to learn about, and actively participate in, the code development and adoption processes that will dictate the energy efficiency of new construction throughout the US. This role will also include involvement in Building Performance Standards (BPS) policy development and implementation, specifically in regards to the relationship between codes and BPS as they apply to new and recently constructed buildings. Ideal candidates will be enthusiastic about making connections and promoting innovative ideas about how to achieve decarbonization and help local and state governments in meeting their climate goals.

Responsibilities

  • Participate in the model energy code development process by attending working group calls, committee meetings, and/or code hearings; conducting research/analyses for proposals; and developing summary documents for distribution to EECC supporters
  • Lead code adoption efforts such as resource development and upkeep, individual jurisdiction tracking, and outreach to organizational supporters and local government representatives.
  • Coordinate with Public Policy team with respect to local and state government contacts and code/BPS adoption resources and support
  • Manage EECC website content through periodic review of materials and addition of resources
  • Manage deliverables and contributions from contractors and partner organizations with respect to the development of reports and studies
  • Work with Communications Team to draft externally facing materials including blogs, presentations, and social meeting announcements about new developments in building codes and policy
  • Contribute to resources on codes and building performance policies and the intersection of social priorities such as resilience, public health, racial equity, affordable housing and workforce development
  • Synthesize complex information—from multiple external and internal sources—and draw insightful conclusions that improve IMT’s ability to advance market adoption of energy efficiency and intersecting social priorities
  • Develop partnerships with community organizations, government agencies, companies, and trade associations as needed
  • Manage assigned projects including planning, reporting, and ensuring deadlines and deliverables are met
  • Present publicly at events and conferences and organize panels on relevant topics
  • Work with other programs as assigned

Qualifications and Skills

  • 5+ years of relevant experience with the built environment; work in engineering or architecture-related fields a plus
  • Comfortable initiating contact with potential partner organizations and individual allies
  • Commitment to advancing social and economic justice
  • Highly organized, with an ability to prioritize and manage multiple assignments
  • Strong problem-solving and analytical skills
  • Strong written and oral communication skills
