Senior Energy Analyst – Technology Supply Chains

  • Full-time
  • Grade: PAL7

Company Description


The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is an international organisation comprised of 38 member countries, that works to build better policies for better lives. Our mission is to promote policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world.  Together with governments, policy makers and citizens, we work on establishing evidence-based international standards, and finding solutions to a range of social, economic and environmental challenges. From improving economic performance and creating jobs to fostering strong education and fighting international tax evasion, we provide a unique forum and knowledge hub for data and analysis, exchange of experiences, best-practice sharing, and advice on public policies and international standard-setting.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) is an intergovernmental organisation committed to advancing security of energy supply, economic growth and environmental sustainability through energy policy co-operation.  The IEA operates as an autonomous body within the framework of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).  Both the OECD and the IEA seek opportunities to work with an increasing number of non-members of growing importance to the world economy. The Agency aims to foster the contribution of the energy sector to economic development and environmental sustainability.

The IEA is recruiting a Senior Energy Analyst to lead the analysis of the supply chains of new and emerging clean energy technologies and their components across a range of sectors. He/she will lead the development of the modelling of supply chains and trade of technologies and materials, and lead the analysis and drafting of related insights for release in flagship reports, in particular the IEA’s bi-annual Energy Technology Perspectives (ETP) publication as well as other relevant reports.

The successful candidate will have a strong analytical background related to clean energy technologies as well as energy systems modelling, and a proven track-record in drafting reports and briefings under tight timelines, translating complex technical questions into accessible messages to non-expert audiences and high-level decision-makers.

The chosen candidate will be part of a dynamic team of enthusiastic professionals in the IEA’s Energy Technology Policy Division. The division analyses current and possible future roles for new and emerging clean energy technologies and their supply chains, spanning from end-use sector applications to the provision of low-emissions fuels such as hydrogen, and the required distribution infrastructure.
