Manager, Global Cooling


Overview of Program: Cooling will be one of the largest drivers of greenhouse gas emissions over the coming years as people across the world buy an additional ~4.5B room air conditioning (RAC) units to adapt to a warming world. While access to space cooling is critical for health and productivity, without intervention, the resulting emissions from this massive growth in RACs are expected to contribute 0.5 degrees Celsius to global surface temperature by 2100.   Manufacturers have begun developing much more efficient RACs that can reduce emissions by as much as 80%, but the current path to market launch and uptake is slow and uncertain. Strategic shaping of markets for key products played a central role in transforming the fight against HIV/AIDS, malaria, and other diseases. Many of the tools that have been successfully deployed to shape markets for health products can be applied to critical climate technologies; however, today, there is a major gap in bringing this market-shaping toolkit and discipline to bear on urgent climate priorities.   CHAI has launched an initiative to shape the global market for energy efficient room air conditioning in emerging markets. CHAI’s market shaping strategy includes financial interventions to unlock supply and demand, alongside country programmatic work centered on consumer uptake, market coordination, and supporting key policy changes. Alongside key partners in the space, CHAI will develop and deploy this playbook of interventions to drive a rapid, large-scale shift away from dirty to clean air conditioners, and that can serve as a model for transforming markets of other climate technologies as well.   Overview of the Position: We’re looking for a Manager to join this rapidly growing venture within CHAI. This Manager will serve as the engine for CHAI’s learning in this space and will have a unique opportunity to be a part of shaping the organization’s strategy and building a program from the ground up. Responsibilities will be focused on but not limited to research, analysis, communications, and project management.   Responsibilities Strategy:  Leading strategy development for key market shaping interventions Creating and executing operational plans tied to strategy Partnership Development & Management: Driving the development and management of new and existing partnerships Supporting complex multi-stakeholder communications and program implementation Research: Researching and synthesizing secondary information sources on the RAC market in India, Southeast Asia, and globally. Identifying key experts and conducting interviews to support learning, outreach, and stakeholder engagement. Designing and implementing surveys to capture key demand & supply data Analysis: Analyzing data & modeling, e.g. manufacturer cost structure analysis; forecasting the impact of specific interventions on emissions Company due diligence to inform our manufacturer or distributor outreach Ideating ways to test proposed market-shaping interventions, and supporting the execution of pilots and other evidence-generating activities. Communications: Creating key assets–presentations, reports, primers–to share our insights and results with internal and external stakeholders Project Management: Helping shape and execute monitoring, evaluation, and learning for the program. Coordinating complex workstreams across internal & external teams Perform other responsibilities, as requested by supervisor
