World Wildlife Fund (WWF), the world’s leading conservation organization, seeks a Manager, Renewable Thermal Collaborative. The Manager, Renewable Thermal Collaborative (Manager) leads WWF’s strategic and technical work under the Renewable Thermal Collaborative (RTC), a multi-stakeholder platform launched in September, 2017 as a project of the Renewable Energy Buyers Alliance and a joint initiative of WWF, the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions (C2ES) and David Gardiner and Associates. The RTC is the leading coalition for organizations committed to scaling up renewable heating and cooling at their facilities and dramatically cutting carbon emissions.
Many large buyers (corporations, cities, education institutions, etc.) with large thermal loads are increasingly looking to renewable thermal solutions, just as they have been seeking renewable electricity solutions. However, renewable thermal solutions are far less commercially developed. The RTC is seeking to advance and clarify a menu of solutions. Within the RTC, the Manager will lead WWF’s work to deepen the RTC coalition’s strategy to develop buyer focused solutions, particularly around biomass and bioenergy. The ideal candidate will have solid expertise on bioenergy because it is an important but complicated solution for renewable thermal energy. Experience with and knowledge of other renewable thermal solutions is a plus.
