Job Description and Duties

The successful candidate will advance in timely fashion the ongoing
implementation of the Stationary Source Refrigerant Management Program,
an AB32 measure, in effect since 2011. The rule requires commercial and
industrial facilities with refrigeration systems to follow best
refrigerant management practices to keep their systems leak tight. A web

large and medium facilities to register and report their refrigerant
usage annually as required by the rule. The successful candidate would
work closely with regulated entities, contractors, and office of
information services to oversee and enhance the successful operation of
the web based reporting system. The successful candidate will also
collect and analyze large industry specific data sets to identify trends
in rule applicability and work with affected industries to improve
outreach and compliance. This will include conducting surveys,
developing outreach and compliance assistance materials, and presenting
information at industry meetings statewide. Other responsibilities
include reviewing and analyzing reported GHG emissions data, assisting
in the investigation of rule violations, evaluating the effectiveness of
the regulations, assisting with the proposed rule amendments, and
preparing briefing papers and rulemaking documents. The successful
candidate will also assist with the development of new mitigation
strategies to meet the legislatively mandated HFC emission reduction
targets. Some travel is required.
