Energy Program Overview The EDF Energy program strives to accelerate the deployment of regulatory practices, technologies and business models needed to bend the curve on global oil and gas emissions by 2030. The electrification of buses and large trucks is a core aspect of our work, as these vehicles are a fast growing source of global oil demand and a major source of local air pollution. This air pollution contributes to severe health challenges, including tens-of-thousands of premature deaths annually. This health burden is disproportionately borne by disadvantaged communities. Overall Function EDF is launching a new campaign to accelerate the uptake of electric heavy-duty vehicles and to power these vehicles with clean energy. EDF will focus our efforts on financing models that will increase fleet uptake of electric heavy vehicles; charging these trucks with clean energy to maximize the environmental benefit; and deploying these vehicles to cut air pollution for disadvantaged communities. This intern will undertake an exploration of how large electric trucks and buses are being used today to reduce local air pollution and explore potential opportunities for EDF to contribute to the accelerated deployment of these vehicles. The intern will work closely with the director, on-road vehicles and engage regularly with other team members. The intern will participate in an organization-wide program that introduces interns to EDF Key Responsibilities Tasks will include but are not limited to: Conduct a landscape assessment of current efforts to deploy zero emission large trucks and buses to drive air pollution reductions in disadvantaged communities. Examine how large trucks and buses contribute to air pollution hot spots in several leading cities; and recommend zero emission vehicle deployment projects that would meaningfully reduce these impacts. Support ongoing EDF projects to accelerate the adoption of large electric trucks and buses. Qualifications Excellent written and oral communication skills. Must be well organized, motivated, and detail-oriented. Ability to multi-task, prioritize and meet deadlines. Ability to work in a team setting and have the ability to work independently when projects are due. Demonstrate initiative and problem solving skills.
