Energy Engineer/Modeler Intern

New Ecology, Inc. is seeking candidates for the role of Energy Engineer/Modeler Intern in its Boston office. This would be a summer internship (approximately three months), working full-time to support the engineering team at New Ecology. This is a small cross-functional team that performs building energy simulations with standard modeling software, performs energy audits, calculates energy savings with spreadsheet tools, and generally provides engineering support for the organization. This position will provide an excellent introduction and ongoing knowledge development for energy efficiency in buildings and more generally for building science, sustainable energy, renewable power, modeling techniques, and analysis.

Duties and Responsibilities:

  • Review building plans and extract important information for use in an energy simulation;
  • Develop building geometry from CAD and other types of files for import to modeling tools;
  • Identify and model building envelope components and HVAC systems;
  • Use building codes to develop baselines;
  • Develop spreadsheet calculations for energy efficiency measures;
  • Support energy audit and data analysis work;
  • Attend site audits and collect data in the field;
  • Report writing and research special topics.

Qualifications:

The successful candidate will have or be working on a degree in a related field such as mechanical engineering, preferably having classes in heat transfer and fluid mechanics, and will have some experience performing research, analysis, and reporting in an academic or professional setting. A demonstrated ability to be responsible for projects and deliverables, and to be creative in improving the efficiency and effectiveness of the processes is expected.

The job will also require proficiency with 2D or 3D drawing/design software such as Autocad or Solidworks as well as Microsoft Office, with advanced experience with MS Excel.  Helpful but not required experience includes a background in building construction or renovation, a familiarity with building science, ASHRAE standards, HVAC systems, electrical systems, and green building prorams such as LEED and Energy Star. 

Schedule: Full time (40 hours per week), starting early June and ending August 31, 2018 (to coincide with MassCEC’s summer session). Though most of the data analysis will be done on computers in an office setting, we would like the intern to accompany our staff on some site audits this summer (typically located in greater Boston), but may require occasional travel within the state of MA.

Compensation: This is an hourly paid position, funding however may be contingent upon support from outside grants such as the MassClean Energy Internship program.

To Apply: Please submit your cover letter and resume to: careers@newecology.org (please put “Energy Engineer/Modeler Internship” in the subject line). Priority will be given to applicants who have active registrations in the MassCEC student database – please visit www.masscec.com/clean-energy-internship-program for more information.
