The Energy Policy and Economics Group of the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), located in Richland, WA, is seeking an undergraduate student to help support our work for the U.S. Department of Energy Building America program. As an intern you’ll learn about (and contribute to) DOE-sponsored building science research into making homes more energy efficient and resilient while helping to populate, update, and maintain the Building America Solution Center, an online resource for home builders, contractors, code officials, energy raters, and realtors. You’ll also learn about DOE’s Zero Energy Ready Home program while supporting other Building America-related tasks as needed.
We believe that managing energy use in buildings and their connected utility systems, as well as improved technologies for enabling renewables - such as wind, water, solar, and biomass - can lead to timely solutions to our nation's energy challenges. We perform energy technology and systems research that supports energy efficiency, energy security-resiliency, energy affordability, and the integration of complex energy systems. In support of this work, the group also performs critical impact-focused studies that inform and guide this research, helping to ensure technology market readiness and acceptance and attaining goals for energy performance.
The Energy Policy and Economics Group at PNNL is comprised of an interdisciplinary team of economists, scientists, and engineers dedicated to understanding all aspects of energy efficient buildings, energy markets including efficient technologies, alternative energy resources, resource extraction, national and local impacts of policy, and the interface between human and natural systems.
