RENEW Wisconsin offers a paid internship opportunity exclusively for a student in the Energy Analysis & Policy (EAP) program at UW–Madison, funded through an endowment that was created by EAP alumni, RENEW Wisconsin members, and the Madison Community Foundation. RENEW Wisconsin is a renewable energy advocacy and policy organization with an office in downtown Madison. This internship involves researching and analyzing Wisconsin’s electricity production and opportunities for renewable energy growth, as well as research and compilation of key renewable energy policies across the utility industry, and supporting RENEW’s activities and events.
The EAP internship with RENEW played an important role in launching Lauren Reeg’s career in clean energy. Lauren graduated in 2021 with a master’s degree from the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies and a certificate in Energy Analysis & Policy and now works for the Rocky Mountain Institute as a Carbon-Free Buildings Associate.
“The RENEW staff gave me the trust and mentorship I needed to become a strong clean energy policy advocate. I was able to grow my utility regulation knowledge, energy education skills, and Midwest clean energy network. Thank you, RENEW WI, for being my strong stepping stone into the clean energy industry.”
Past RENEW interns from the EAP program are now working in leading clean energy organizations such as Enel Green Energy, Tetra Tech, ICF International, and the Rocky Mountain Institute. When this internship is open for applications, instructions on how to apply will be listed on this page.
