Regional Lead, East Africa - Clean Energy Access

CLASP is seeking a highly motivated business, development and/or energy access professional to lead the expansion of innovative new clean energy access programs. In partnership with governments, philanthropies, major development institutions, and industry, CLASP supports and accelerates growth in the global markets for high-quality, highly energy-efficient off-grid energy service products, which deliver improved, more cost-effective modern energy services to un- and under- electrified households and businesses throughout the developing world.    

The Regional Lead will work collaboratively with CLASP team members in the United States, Bangladesh, India and Europe, as well as wide network of international partners and program stakeholders. The Regional Lead will create, measure, and report programmatic impacts, and will be responsible for a wide and diverse range of activities related to the development and execution of programmatic and organizational objectives.
The Regional Lead will be responsible for the development and execution of an innovative new program’s expansion to several East African countries. The program couples the Global LEAP Outstanding Off-Grid Appliance Awards with results-based financing procurement incentives to drive best-in-class appliances into emerging off-grid markets. The program also features a variety of other market development activities, such as policy technical assistance and market research, and a robust monitoring and evaluation framework. The program launched this year in Bangladesh, and will be expanding to East Africa in late 2016 or early 2017. 
Current program stakeholders include Power Africa, USAID, the US Department of Energy, Energising Development, the International Finance Corporation, the Clean Energy Ministerial, the UK Department for International Development (DfID), GIZ, the World Bank, and many others others.
The Regional Lead is also expected to play a significant role in other, related programmatic and policy activities, as they emerge, throughout East Africa and the continent.
The perfect candidate will have an extraordinary mind for program development, execution and administration, deep expertise on African market and policy dynamics, world class people skills, a commitment to impacts and results, and a sense of humor.
Box checkers need not apply. Creative, open-minded, innovative self-starters welcome.

Deliver impacts and wins: Work with CLASP colleagues around the world to develop and implement the program and oversee the work of independent contractors. Manage day-to-day activities and administration in East Africa to ensure impacts.
Transform the off-grid market: Identify and explore barriers to market transformation for specific technologies and products in East Africa around the world. Develop creative approaches for overcoming barriers that fit into and leverage program activities.
Stay nimble and collaborative, and keep the big picture in mind: Contribute to and conduct programmatic work within the larger context of partner, sectoral, and CLASP efforts.
