About The Electrification Coalition 

The Electrification Coalition (EC) is a national, nonpartisan not-for-profit organization committed to promoting policies and actions that facilitate the accelerated deployment of electric vehicles (EVs) on a mass scale. For more than 10 years, the EC and its sister organization, Securing America’s Future Energy (SAFE), have sought to reduce our nation’s dependence on oil – which is currently responsible for powering 92 percent of our transportation system.   

The last two years have been an exciting time for the EC, as we have created and contributed to some of the most innovative public-private partnerships in transportation electrification, including our work on behalf of the American Cities Climate Challenge, the award-winning Climate Mayors EV Purchasing Collaborative, the Smart City Challenge and numerous other initiatives. The EC also leads and supports a broad suite of policies and initiatives at the federal, state, and local levels that are contributing to the accelerated electrification of the transportation and mobility sector. 

The Opportunity 

The Policy Analyst is a contributing researcher and writer for the EC’s policy team. This position is responsible for research, analysis, and writing across a variety of policy projects, reports, presentations, and memos. Issues of focus include electrification of the transportation system, fleet electrification efforts, municipal engagement, energy economics, and new or innovative transportation technologies with a focus on electric and autonomous vehicles. The Policy Analyst also contributes to the EC’s external communications and supports other departments as necessary.

  • Support other departments: Provide policy support, progress reports, and proactive updates to the SAFE/EC policy team, in addition to leadership, plus the EC’s development and communications departments as required.
