Third Way’s Climate and Energy Program designs and advocates for policies to put the United States on the fastest, fairest path to net-zero emissions by 2050. To reach this goal, we will need to harness every clean energy technology available today and accelerate innovation to both improve these existing tools and invent those we still need to reach net-zero. We are expanding our work to advocate for technology-inclusive policies to achieve net-zero emissions in Europe. We are looking for an Executive Director that will lead our expansion to Europe, establishing a program that will help develop and advocate for policies to accelerate the innovation and deployment of a diverse suite of clean energy technologies. This includes building support within the climate community in Europe for options that include wind, solar, existing nuclear reactors, advanced nuclear, carbon capture and sequestration, energy storage, and new transmission resources. It also includes support for policies to enable the rapid decarbonization of the transportation, industrial, and agricultural sectors.
The Executive Director will represent Third Way's Climate and Energy Program's new European initiative in front of European governments, the media, and in coalitions involving other NGOs and clean energy technology providers. The Executive Director will work with Third Way Climate and Energy Program leadership to develop and execute strategies to influence policy to reach net-zero emissions in Europe. This will include building coalitions, overseeing research, engaging with the media, and directly interacting with key government officials.
