About the Office of Policy

The OP supports the Secretary, Deputy Secretary, and the Undersecretaries on domestic energy and climate policy issues, and related integration of energy systems. The OP serves as a focal point for policy coordination within the Department on the analysis, formulation, development, and advancement of energy policy and related programmatic options and initiatives that could facilitate the transition to a zero-carbon, equitable, and secure energy economy.  They provide analysis to directly inform real-world policymaking by the Department of Energy, the White House, and Capitol Hill. That work spans everything from identifying new concepts to providing technical assistance on draft policy. They rely heavily on data and modeling, both their own and work by a variety of stakeholders. Their work spans technology analysis, infrastructure deployment, clean energy jobs, and state, local, tribal, and territorial activities. They provide expertise in electricity systems, buildings and industry, mobility, and all parts of the transition to a clean energy economy for all.

What will I be doing?

As an ORISE participant, you will conduct research analysis in support of the OP and will assist current OP staff with policy analysis projects and assignments in one or more of the following focus areas:

  • Clean energy infrastructure and deployment: understanding best practices for quickly building out clean energy across the United States
  • Energy jobs: creating the next generation of clean energy mobilization through high-quality, sustained clean energy jobs
  • Decarbonization pathways: mapping the interrelated decisions necessary to reduce greenhouse gases to net zero by 2050
  • Quick turnaround analysis: researching tax policy design, technology status, market approaches, or any topic necessary to support ongoing, real world policy discussions

Assignments will include economic, technical, and policy analyses for issues related to energy markets, including modeling assessments. You will learn by assisting with technical and economic analyses, report writing, presentation materials, spreadsheet analyses, briefing papers, background reports, and other written and oral presentation materials. You will also assist with the preparation of databases, information retrieval, and web searches.

Participant Benefits: Participants will receive a stipend to be determined by OP.  Stipends are typically based on the participant's academic standing, discipline, experience, and research facility location.  OP may authorize a supplemental stipend to offset the costs of health insurance.  Participants are eligible to purchase health insurance plans offered through ORISE.  Participants may receive an allowance for education and/or scientific activities as approved by OP.
