Senior Project Advisor

ICF's Energy and Advisory Services Business is growing and we seek a Senior Project Adviser to join our Distributed Energy Resources (DER) practice. Our growing advisory services work is focused on the integration and valuation of distributed energy resources to achieve our clients’ business, regulatory, and environmental objectives. DER includes renewable and clean distributed generation, distributed storage, demand response, energy efficiency and electric vehicles. Our DER advisory services includes assisting our clients in assessing DER opportunities and impacts through strategic planning, regulatory and market development, grid modernization road mapping, T&D investment planning, operations and customer engagement.  As a Senior Project Adviser, you will provide advisory services to utilities, policymakers, technology firms, and research institutions regarding the integration and utilization of DER.

We apply grid planning and operational insights to evaluate integrated DER solutions, develop non-wires alternatives, and help clients procure, manage and deploy DER to benefit customers and the grid as utility revenue models evolve.

Our energy experts are adept at optimizing energy management solutions.
