Internship – Land Use Analyst
Golden, CO
Student RPP
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), located at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Golden, Colorado, is the nation’s primary laboratory for research, development and deployment of renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies. NREL’s Strategic Energy Analysis Center has an immediate opening for an undergraduate or graduate student internship. The position is up to 40 hours per week with the option of a reduced-load schedule to accommodate any classes. The student will support energy analysis activities with a focus on land use of energy systems.
NREL has made important contributions to determining the land requirements of wind, solar and geothermal technologies. Comparisons of the land required for conventional energy generation technologies are challenging due to the fact that upstream land use of fossil fuel technologies, especially natural gas production, is not well characterized. The intern will work with researchers in the Strategic Energy Analysis Center to provide empirical estimates of life cycle land use for natural gas systems. 

Specific Job duties include: 
• Data gathering and processing 
• Land use analysis of energy systems 
• Analysis of satellite imagery 
• Data Analysis
Must be enrolled as a full-time student in a degree granting program at an accredited institution. 

Minimum of a 3.0 cumulative grade point average. 

Please Note: 
Be sure to attach your current transcript (unoffical transcripts are acceptable) on the "Submit Attachments" Page during the application process in order for your GPA and student status to be verified.
• Engineering, technical, or scientific background/study. 
• Good mathematics skills. 
• Working knowledge of Microsoft Office Suite (Excel, Word, PowerPoint) 
• Familiarity with spreadsheet formulas and methods.
• Macros and/or other programming languages within a spreadsheet environment.
