The DOER Clean Energy Internship Programs seeks to provide interns with exciting opportunities to assist the Department of Energy Resources with implementing energy policies in areas such as renewables, energy efficiency, alternative transportation, energy markets, cleantech, and more. The intern program is open to undergraduate students, graduate students, law school students, and other individuals who are seeking experience in the energy and cleantech arenas.
In conjunction with Massachusetts DOER’s talented and professional team, interns are provided with education, training, hands-on experience, supervision, and networking opportunities, utilizing modern technology and information systems during their internships.
Current clean energy internship positions are unpaid; however, DOER can work with interns to earn academic credits. Massachusetts clean energy internships are conducted in supervised settings and are available across DOER’s various divisions and functions.
