Job Description and Duties

The California Energy Commission seeks an Energy Resources Specialist III (Supervisory) in the Energy Research and Development Division/Energy Systems Research Office/Energy Technology Systems Integration Unit.

Under the general direction of the Energy Resources Specialist III (Manager), the Energy Resources Specialist III (Supervisor) (ERS III (S)) serves as the supervisor of the Energy Technology Systems Integration (ETSI) unit. ETSI oversees the energy research, development, and demonstration (RD&D) portfolio to advance science and technology that will help California meet carbon-neutral energy system goals while maintaining reliability and improving resilience to climate variations and threats such as wildfires, earthquakes, floods, and other challenges to energy infrastructure. For California to achieve a carbon-free future, its electric grid must be designed and built to work optimally with variable renewable resources including wind and solar. The incumbent will guide ETSI to forge a path to the grid of the future – one that sustains electricity reliability while incorporating renewables at customer sites as well as on the larger grid. The incumbent will supervise a team of scientists and engineers that are evaluating and managing new and emerging technologies that may include advanced energy storage technologies, green hydrogen planning and solutions, grid reliability modeling and technology solutions, vehicle-grid integration, clean energy microgrids, and other evolving technologies that support grid reliability given greater supplies of renewable energy. The team also will address how advancing new and emerging technologies can help California achieve a carbon-free electric grid by 2045. Additionally, they may manage research efforts in the decarbonization of the California gas pipeline system and oversee efforts to evaluate and develop solutions that will result in a carbon neutral system by 2045.

The ETSI Supervisor: (1) Directs and mentors an interdisciplinary team of engineers and scientists advancing technology RD&D; (2) Oversees RD&D program planning for ETSI and the administration of tens of millions of dollars of public RD&D funding, which involves economic and market analyses, development and assessment of RD&D opportunities, and engagement of internal and external RD&D partners – including technology firms, national laboratories, academic institutions, among others; (3) Leads the identification, tracking, and communication of the benefits of the ETSI RD&D portfolio; (4) Ensures the ETSI team is working in a positive environment, supports recognition of team members, and enforces personnel disciplinary actions as necessary; and (5) Serves as an expert on reliability, resiliency, and other topics within the ETSI research portfolio for the Energy Research and Development Division (ERDD), which conducts RD&D to advance science and technology not adequately provided by regulated and competitive markets, and for the Commission more broadly.
