Job Description

Overview

Cadmus seeks a Senior Analyst to support its Strategic Electrification practice on electric vehicles, clean energy, and sustainable transportation. Our team works directly with local governments, state and federal agencies, utilities, transit agencies, and industry to analyze policy and develop technical assistance resources. Cadmus is a leader in helping clients plan and evaluate EV investments, policies, and programs. 

Senior Analysts work closely with senior staff to conduct policy research, qualitative and quantitative market research, and evaluations to inform data-driven decision-making related to electric vehicles. The ideal candidate should be detail-oriented, motivated, and capable of creative problem-solving and independent work. The candidate should also have a working knowledge across topics such as DER, sustainable transportation planning, and electric vehicle deployment. 

As renewable energy becomes more plentiful, electrification of transportation holds increasing value for environmental sustainability objectives. The rapid evolution of the transportation sector presents opportunities for multi-disciplinary problem-solving, which will require holistic approaches at the intersection of electric vehicle (EV) policy, clean energy, energy storage, demand response, and mobility planning. Cadmus supports clients at the forefront of electric vehicle policy, who are leading government, community, and utility organizations to achieve ambitious climate and energy goals. Through detailed analysis, careful planning, and robust stakeholder engagement, we equip our clients to harness the collective potential of four trends that are revolutionizing the energy and transportation sectors: electrification of energy end-uses, the increasingly distributed nature of electric grid resources, the rise of shared mobility and new mobility options, and advances in connected and autonomous vehicle technology.
