Why you should work with us? Because within DNV GL’s Renewables Advisory group, organizational culture, and more specifically how we collectively influence the world for future generations, matters deeply to us. Our team works every day to increase the widespread deployment and operation of renewables to address climate change and positively impact society; endeavors to achieve our purpose through the success of our customers; and strives to be high-performing and innovative. Our approach reflects the equity, respect, and diversity we wish to see in the world.  

Brief Team and Position Summary:

DNV GL - Energy is seeking a Permitting Manager to join our Renewables Advisory group.

The Environmental and Permitting Services (EPS) team is growing rapidly, and we are seeking an experienced and collaborative Permitting Manager to lead the growth of our comprehensive permitting services in New York. 

Our team:

The EPS team is comprised of siting, environmental, and permitting specialists who work directly with our customers to help identify and address project risks. Our mission is to guide the sustainable, responsible growth of the renewables industry by providing innovative environmental and permitting expertise to support the greater good.

Our work:

Our Customers are primarily developers and utilities, developing wind (onshore and offshore), solar, and battery and energy storage projects across the U.S., Canada and internationally. Broadly, our work falls into four categories:

Our Customers can choose any number of consultancies to execute on specific tasks. However, our EPS team strives to develop long-term partnerships with our Customers, acting as their trusted advisor from the earliest layouts through operations. Our Customers are at the forefront of the energy transition. Principally, our team needs to remain nimble, retain our deep expertise in wind and solar PV while growing our competency to advise on energy storage and offshore wind developments. Through this transition, our team is driven by our mission to ensure renewable energy projects are safely and sustainably designed, constructed and installed.  

Tasks May Include

  • Participate in or lead environmental assessments/environmental impacts statements, construction and operation plans, and other studies related to offshore wind activities in the NY Bight;
  • Set project milestones for scope, schedule, and budget and ensure milestones are met;
  • Perform technical checking and initial approval of certain work products conducted by junior staff;
  • Proactively seek out practical and realistic business development opportunities in the NY market and prepare or coordinate proposals and bids;
  • Give technical presentations and participate in panel discussions at industry workshops and conferences;
  • Engage in facilitating innovative and new service offerings to anticipate/meet market needs.
