Residential Buildings Decarbonization Fellow: U.S. DOE Building Technologies Office

The U.S. Department of Energy, Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) – Science, Technology and Policy (STP) Program serves as a next step in the educational and professional development of recent graduates by providing opportunities to participate in policy-related projects at DOE’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) in Washington, D.C. Participants will collaborate with and learn from government scientists, engineers, program managers, and policymakers to gain experience learning about projects that support DOE’s mission to combat the climate crisis, create good clean energy jobs, and promote energy justice.

This Fellowship is hosted by EERE’s Building Technologies Office (BTO). EERE’s mission is to create and sustain American leadership in the transition to a global clean energy economy. BTO supports that mission by conducting research and implementing programs to support efficient decarbonization of more than 125 million homes and buildings throughout the United States.

Within the Building Technologies Office, the Residential Buildings Integration (RBI) team is seeking Fellows to engage with its dynamic work to enable better housing through widespread access to energy efficiency technologies and resources. The United States has over 118 million housing units split between rented and owner-occupied single-family homes, manufactured homes, and apartment units. These housing units consume about 22% of total US energy and cost households $220 billion in energy bills each year. Energy efficient features like insulation, heat pumps, LEDs, and ENERGY STAR® equipment can help households reduce their energy bills, increase comfort, and reduce pollution. BTO’s Residential Buildings Team supports analysis, data tools, and efficiency programs to increase access to these technologies nationwide.
