DHInfrastructure, an economic consulting firm based in Northampton and Boston, Massachusetts, is looking to hire an analyst for its growing US energy regulatory practice. This is a position for someone with at least 2-3 years’ experience in a US state-level regulatory body (PSC, PUC, or similar), the regulatory affairs department of a utility company, or the regulatory practice of a consulting firm.

Job Duties/Responsibilities: 

Analysts will work closely with senior-level staff, developing analysis and preparing testimony on proceedings before US state-level energy regulators. Responsibilities will include developing an overall strategy for approach to a case, undertaking the research and analysis agreed on as part of that strategy, contributing to the preparation of discovery questions and responses to discovery questions, and contributing to the preparation of expert witness testimony.

Qualifications: 

You should apply if any, or all, of the following apply to you:
• I have an opinion on whether it is better to recover costs through a fixed or variable charge
• I spend my free time listening to podcasts on, reading about, or just generally sitting around thinking about energy, climate change, and/or regulatory policy issues
• I am scrupulous and not afraid of a few hours carefully checking utility invoices
• I think I could come up with an approach to complete the above task in less than a few hours
• I once tried to explain to someone at a dinner party what the different charges are on their utility bill
• I generally understand what is being said when I hear, “The 9.6% recommended return on equity results in a 7.3% or $8.4 million return on rate base and, combined with the $38 million in operating expenses, will require a 7.8 percent increase in base rates.”
Successful applicants will:
• Have a bachelor’s or master’s degree in a relevant field (economics, math, public policy, government, etc.)
• Have exceptional writing and oral communication skills
• Be able to think logically, and explain their thinking clearly
• Be self-starters, and be highly motivated to learn and rigorously apply new analytical frameworks
• Have 2-3 years hands-on experience in energy sector regulation
• Have advanced Excel skills

Benefits: 

The position will be located in either our main office in Northampton, MA or our satellite office in Boston, MA. Telecommuting is expected/encouraged initially until circumstances with the COVID pandemic change substantially. We offer a competitive salary (based on relevant experience and education) along with dental, health, and retirement benefits. Other perks include the option to join the company mobile plan, continuing education, staff retreats, Friday happy hours, and possible work travel opportunities.

How to Apply: 

Interested applicants should submit a cover letter, resume, and a 5-10 page sample of recent professional writing (something written for work or related to it). Applications without these materials will not be considered. No phone calls please.
