Global Energy Monitor (GEM) is a network of researchers developing information for the worldwide climate and clean energy movement. Since the organization’s founding in 2007, GEM’s research has become an essential tool for activists, journalists, policymakers, and scientists. GEM’s data and reports are used and cited by organizations ranging from Greenpeace to The Wall Street Journal. GEM’s information is used by Bloomberg Terminals, the International Energy Agency, the IPCC, Climate Analytics, Carbon Tracker Initiative, and hundreds of others.
Note: GEM does not have a central office; instead, GEM works with employees to create suitable home offices catered to the needs of their role. Remote staff need not be based in the United States.
Global Energy Monitor is expanding its executive team by adding a second Associate Director. Reporting to the Executive Director, the Associate Director will share the full spectrum of executive responsibilities for GEM, including strategic planning, development of new programs, fundraising, hiring, staff support, partnerships, technology development, budgeting, and outreach. The position will provide specific leadership on coal, gas, oil, and renewable energy, with an emphasis on integrating GEM’s strategy, programs, outreach, and partnership development on energy transition issues.
According to the Intergovernmental Panel of Climate Change (IPCC), we have less than a decade to make massive and unprecedented changes in the global economy to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. To meet that challenge, Global Energy Monitor is creating trackers and other tools to provide detailed information on energy facilities, sponsors, and financing.
