    Job Summary: The Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) has been powering the Pacific Northwest for over 70 years. Today BPA is regarded as a world leader, operating one of the nation’s largest high voltage transmission systems with more than 15,000 miles of line that provides half the electricity used in the Northwest. In addition to transmission, BPA helps fund and manage the largest fish and wildlife program in the world; invests in new renewable generating resources for the Northwest such as wind and geothermal projects; and is a leading partner in promoting energy conservation and efficiency programs.

    Not only is BPA recognized as a world leader in transmission but BPA has received numerous awards including Oregon State’s “Families in Good Company”. How did we become a world leader?

    Requirements:

    • Pre-Appointment Background Investigation is Required.

    Notes:
    The full performance level of this position is GS-13.

    This position may be filled at the GS-12, or GS-13 level. You must indicate on your application the grade level(s) for which you are applying. Candidates hired at less than full-performance level may be promoted without further competition when assigned higher-level duties and meeting all qualification requirements.

    Time-in-Grade Restrictions: Applicants must have served 52 weeks at the next lower grade level in the Federal service.

    Minimum Qualifications and Time-in-Grade Requirements must be met within 60 calendar days of the closing date of this announcement.

    Major Duties: Business success depends on people – talented, motivated, agile people. Energy Efficiency (EE) is a dynamic organization that works with BPA’s customers, regional service providers, and governmental, non-profit organizations to improve the energy efficiency of end-use consumers across the Pacific Northwest. Energy Efficiency currently spends roughly $80 million per year on energy efficiency and an increasing amount on RD&D per year. BPA’s energy conservation activities are widely regarded as sound, efficient, and effective.

    This position is located in the Engineering Services group of the Program Implementation organization. Engineering Services provides a range of technical services in support of energy efficiency programs and activities as well as support to other BPA groups.

    This position:
    • Serves as a project engineer and highly knowledgeable technical specialist in the area of emerging technologies
    • Is responsible for developing and managing high profile, multi-million dollar emerging technology projects
    • Builds and manages a collaborative of key stakeholders such as U.S. Department of Energy (USDOE), Pacific Northwest National Labs (PNNL), Washington State University Energy Extension Office (WSU), select electric utilities, industrial associations, and manufacturers to investigate and develop innovative emerging energy efficiency technologies.
    • Manages the Emerging Technology Assessment and Demonstration project – a two-phased, multi-year, multi-partnered project with the purpose of identifying priority emerging technologies, the quantification of their energy savings, and the demonstration of cost-effective potential for the BPA service territory. The project will address research and development needs for the agricultural, commercial, industrial, and residential sectors in support of BPA’s energy efficiency program.

    The incumbent will use a wide variety of management, analytical, and engineering techniques, to explore, document and demonstrate emerging EE technologies and how they apply to BPA’s efficiency programs. This position requires a self-starter with solid project management and collaborative abilities and analytical skills. The ideal candidate will be able to visualize and build a demonstration plan to achieve that vision.
