The projects are located on DOD bases, tribal lands and other properties. The work spans portfolio to individual project levels, and is intended to accelerate the speed and scale of EE and RE deployment by assisting clients in navigating the project development process. The incumbent will focus on helping the client analyze opportunities for EE/RE development from economic and technical points of view. The ideal candidate will understand standard private sector approaches for developing projects and will have the ability to apply the commercial project development model to aid Federal agencies and other clients in developing EE/RE projects for execution by the private sector.
