Position Summary:  The Department of Education’s (DOE) Energy Team consists of staff within the Division of School Facilities’ Office of Maintenance and Optimization and the Office of Sustainability. The DOE Energy Team oversees energy management and emissions reductions activities across the DOE’s portfolio, which includes more than 1,400 buildings, accounting for 131M square feet, and represents approximately 40 percent of total City-owned building square footage. DOE also is the largest energy-consuming City agency, accounting for nearly 22 percent of City government’s energy consumption.


The DOE is scaling up the volume of work generated to meet the City’s reduction standards including reductions of energy usage of 40% by 2025, 50% by 2030 and 80% by 2050. To achieve energy and emissions reductions across our portfolio and let us fully participate in many DEM programs, including retro-commissioning and load management, the DOE must address the Agency’s Building Management Systems (BMS) issues. The Energy Project Manager will identify controls related energy conservation measures.
