Opening and Closing Dates


The Environment Officer serves as an energy advisor in the Energy Division, which manages USAID’s Washington-based energy programs and provides technical and management leadership and support to USAID’s energy sector reform agenda implemented at the country-level, with a primary focus on the electricity sector in developing economies in Asia, the Middle East, Africa, Eastern Europe and Eurasia, and Latin America and the Caribbean where USAID missions are located. The energy advisor will serve as a technical expert on a range of electricity sector issues, including energy sector reform, which encompasses legal, regulatory, and utility reform, clean energy, energy efficiency, energy access, and climate change mitigation. The advisor will provide high quality technical advice and assistance to USAID’s regional bureaus and in-country missions to design, implement, and evaluate bilateral energy programs. Further, the energy advisor will develop and maintain high-level business relationships with USAID and US government counterparts, as well as multilateral development banks, other international financial institutions, donors, foreign government officials, energy sector professionals in both the public and private sector in developing countries, and private sector developers and investors. This is not a policy position, but rather focuses on consultation, design, and implementation of energy sector projects, programs, and activities in support of US foreign policy objectives.
