EDF's work in China
Real-world energy management experience
Climate Corps recruits and trains graduate students from a wide range of programs and embeds them in leading organizations around the world for 10-12 weeks in the summer. Since 2008, Climate Corps has placed over 1000 fellows in host organizations. Climate Corps fellows can become part of our growing network of over 2000 energy management/sustainability practitioners and inspiring leaders. Fellows also undergo interactive training and gain access to EDF resources such as job postings.
What Climate Corps looks for
Climate Corps seeks top graduate students with analytical and project management backgrounds who are excited to make an impact through smart energy management. Fellows are chosen for their ability to do technical and financial analyses, manage projects, communicate effectively, and help facilitate organizational change.
Climate Corps China
Since 2014, Climate Corps has placed more than 80 fellows in China with leading companies including: Apple, New Balance, McDonald’s, IKEA, Coca-Cola and Walmart. These talented graduate students have found tens of millions of dollars in energy savings for their “host companies” and their supply chains.
Info about training
In late May, EDF hosts a weeklong training for fellows with EDF experts and sustainability consultants. The curriculum covers energy efficiency, sustainability strategy, carbon accounting, building systems, financial analysis and more. For China fellows, we have an additional training in China in early June which is more tailored for industrial efficiencies and clean production in China.
