VHCB - Community Energy Coordinator
The Vermont Natural Resources Council is an independent, nonprofit (501.c.3) founded in 1963. VNRC’s mission is to advance programs and practices that support and strengthen the foundation upon which Vermont’s economy thrives — a healthy environment. VNRC has four program areas — Water, Forests and Biodiversity, Sustainable Communities and Energy and Climate. VNRC is also the coordinator of the Vermont Energy and Climate Action Network (VECAN), which is an umbrella network of partner organizations and approximately 125 all-volunteer community energy committees across Vermont. VECAN’s core mission is to start and strengthen energy committees and support their efforts to decrease energy consumption, transition to renewable resources, foster diverse transportation choices and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The primary goal of this position is to help start and strengthen town energy committees. Specifically, this position largely focuses on building the capacity of energy committees and supporting their education, communication and project implementation efforts around weatherization, efficiency, conservation, renewable energy projects, transportation innovation and more. This includes an important focus on helping these groups better serve and engage low income Vermonters, helping more vulnerable Vermonters reduce their heating, electricity and transportation costs.
