Agora Think Tanks

The world’s energy systems are changing. Renewable energy has moved from a niche technology to its broad-scale adoption in many countries. Policy makers face new technical, economic, and policy challenges. Understanding this complex transformation is essential for decision-making and ensuring smooth transitions to a clean energy system. 
The International Network of Energy Transition Think Tanks (INETTT) brings together think tanks supporting energy transitions from around the world. It aims to integrate the perspectives of its members to offer a more diverse view of energy transitions, their drivers and impacts both globally and comparatively between member countries. It offers opportunities to exchange, share, and collaborate on research topics, policy, and strategy, thereby strengthening joint and individual impact, through exchange of lessons learned, leveraging synergies, as well as institutional and thematic skill-sharing supported through grants.
Under the auspices of Agora, the INETTT Secretariat is responsible for the operation and development of the network. Its success will rely upon energy experts as well as experts in administration. Under the supervision of the Director of INETTT, the Secretariat is looking for a:
