Job opportunity: The D-REC Initiative is looking to hire a Founding Executive Director for the D-REC organization
The D-REC Organization seeks a founding Executive Director to lead the new organization in its mission to accelerate the energy transition in developing & emerging markets.
The D-REC Organization
The upcoming launch of the D-REC Organization follows two years of work by The D-REC Initiative, a not-for-profit, industry-led initiative to create a global market for distributed renewable energy. We are designing, delivering and demonstrating new ways to certify and value distributed renewable electricity attributes by creating a new, internationally recognized market instrument called the D-REC (Distributed Renewable Energy Certificate).
Our mission is to accelerate climate justice and the energy transition by reducing the barriers to entry that prevent high-impact distributed renewable energy projects in emerging countries from participating in global environmental markets. We envision a world in which everyone, everywhere, has access to the energy they need to power their homes, their businesses and their lives.
The D-REC Organization is being launched to support and promote the D-REC market instrument, to advocate with global corporations for the highest impact renewable energy projects, and to support distributed renewable energy (DRE) project developers in the developing world to access global environmental markets.
This is a unique opportunity for a person that is highly committed and passionate about expanding access to clean energy in developing and emerging markets. The successful candidate will have experience leading teams, articulating a vision, and mobilizing resources. She/He will have a deep understanding of global environmental markets and will be committed to accelerating the energy transition. Applicants with lived experience in developing and emerging markets and a close understanding of energy access issues in the Global South are encouraged to apply for this role.
