City of New York

Accelerated Conservation and Efficiency Program Associate

Date posted: Wednesday, February 07, 2018

Job Details:

New York City Department of Citywide Administrative Services
JVN 868-2018-320019
Accelerated Conservation and Efficiency (ACE Program Associate) 
Salary: $70,000 – $95,000

The Department of Citywide Administrative Services’ (“DCAS”) Division of Energy Management (“DEM”) serves as the hub for energy management for City government operations, including energy procurement, building retrofits, improved operations & maintenance, training, performance tracking and management of electricity, natural gas, and steam accounts that serve 80 agencies and more than 4,000 buildings.

DEM is tasked with leading the City’s efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (“GHG”) emissions by 80 percent by 2050 from a 2005 baseline (“80 x 50”).  Specifically, the City has set a near-term goal to reduce GHG emissions from government buildings 35 percent by 2025 (“35 x 25”).  DEM will look to both demand and supply side initiatives to accomplish these goals.  

Through reducing energy usage and increasing the supply of low carbon energy within governmental operations, using its infrastructure assets as a test bed for new and innovative energy efficiency and clean energy generation technologies, and developing use cases for the private sector to build off of, DEM will achieve its near-term goals and put the city on a path toward 80 x 50. It is important to understand the interactions – both upstream and downstream – that our energy initiatives have on other policy goals of the City including air quality, public health, economic growth, equity and resiliency.  Our energy initiatives must work in concert with and to the greatest extent possible complement the broader goals of the City.

Job Description, Program Associate, Accelerated Conservation and Efficiency
DEM seeks to hire a Program Associate to provide administrative support to the Accelerated Conservation and Efficiency (ACE) Program. The ACE Program is a competitive funding program for energy efficiency projects implemented by City Agencies and a central component of the municipal energy strategy under One City, Built to Last. The ACE program currently has allocated over $400M to City Agencies and has active projects at over 700 City buildings. ACE projects range broadly in scope and implementation speed.  

The Program Associate will report to the ACE Program Manager and will be responsible for the administration and operations of the ACE program.  The Program Associate will track and report on project progress for program KPIs, gather and analyze data for program strategy development, prepare and oversee legal agreements with City Agencies and external parties, perform data quality verification, support project closeout procedures, assist in capital planning and collaborate with stakeholders to streamline procurement process.  The Program Associate will be responsible for maintaining a central repository for all administration pertaining to the ACE-funded projects.  Additionally, the Program Associate will be responsible for liaising with the Office of Management and Budget and City Agencies to facilitate procurement and implementation for ACE funded projects.  The Program Associate will gauge user experience, measurement and verification requirements, and program KPIs to optimize the ACE Program operations.  Lastly, the Program Associate will perform cost analysis to ensure optimal use of City funds to achieve targeted GHG reductions.

Under the leadership of the ACE Program Manager, with wide latitude and responsibility for the exercise of independent judgment and initiative, the Program Associate will:
• Conduct financial and energy savings analyses to assess program outcomes and goal attainment; 
• Support capital budget planning and fund utilization efforts, including, but not limited to, preparation, review and approval of capital budget materials, liaise with City Agencies, Capital Budget Units and Office of Management and Budget to steward ACE funding, and track capital budget milestones;
• Support project close-out procedures, particularly budget close-out and operational performance verification;
• Track and monitor project details including costs, energy savings and greenhouse gas emissions reductions;
• Manage incentive opportunities offered through state, utility and national programs including preparing and submitting RFI and RFP responses, remaining vigilant of incentive releases, and fulfilling programmatic requirements;
• Oversee preparation, development, and execution of agreements to facilitate project deployment and establish roles and responsibilities with City Agencies and external stakeholders;
• Manage client inter-agency contracts and program support services; 
• Support measurement and verification (M&V) procedures including liaising with third-party M&V provider; 
• Conduct analysis to review, forecast and verify energy savings & GHG reductions;    
• Oversee development, utilization and enhancement of program tracking and reporting tools;
• Report on program-related key performance indicators (KPIs);
• Perform periodic quality assurance checks to ensure integrity of large dataset.
