Every summer Renewable Northwest offers an internship to students and recent graduates seeking experience in renewable energy advocacy.

Applications for 2018 will be accepted now through March 5.

The Organization:

Renewable Northwest is a nonprofit advocacy group based in Portland, Oregon. We envision the Northwest powered by clean, affordable, reliable, renewable energy that protects the climate, strengthens the economy, and preserves our quality of life. We advocate for the expansion of environmentally responsible renewable energy resources in the Northwest through collaboration with government, industry, utilities, customers, and advocacy groups.

The Internship:

The intern will assist Renewable Northwest in conducting research and/or outreach work on one or more projects to be completed over 10 weeks during the summer.

The following projects currently comprise the core of the work planned for this summer's internship, though additional projects may be substituted if they are deemed a higher priority when the summer begins.

  • Collect data on utility Renewable Portfolio Standard compliance in Washington, Oregon and Montana, and create a summary to educate the public on the success and value of the policies.  
  • Research information on current renewable energy issues and the positive impacts of renewables in in the Northwest, then produce content for fact sheets and online resources for use in our renewable energy advocacy work. Topics may include renewable energy technologies, environmental benefits, economic impacts, consumer education issues, etc.
  • Collect and organize data on renewable energy projects in the Northwest, and update our existing project database and map.

Candidates should have excellent research and writing skills, have strong experience working with Microsoft Excel and Word, and demonstrate passion for renewable energy and/or Northwest energy issues. Please highlight in your cover letter how your particular skills and experience relate to the potential projects outlined above.
