About the Oregon Department of Energy
At the Oregon Department of Energy , we're helping to shape the state's energy future. Our team is dedicated to keeping Oregon on the leading edge of renewable energy and efficiency while supporting energy innovation, investment, and resilience. From helping individual Oregonians save energy at home to overseeing the state's interests in the world's largest environmental cleanup at the Hanford nuclear site in Washington, our work is challenging, rewarding, and diverse.

ODOE is committed to helping Oregon remain an energy leader, and that starts with hiring smart, engaged team members who are ready to deliver for Oregonians.

In ition to general support, the Division also monitors facilities on EFSC's behalf, from proposal and pre-construction through to construction completion, ongoing compliance, and decommissioning.
