Global Energy Monitor is seeking an experienced Project Manager for its global iron and steel asset trackers.
Global Energy Monitor’s Heavy Industry Program houses several global trackers dedicated to providing information about the global iron and steel industry, which is responsible for 11% of global carbon dioxide emissions. The Global Steel Plant Tracker (GSPT) tracks all metal production facilities with at least 500 thousand tonnes per annum crude iron/steel capacity. This tracker includes information on location, ownership, production technology, operating status, and more. The Global Blast Furnace Tracker (GBFT) tracks details about age, size, and manufacturer/model for blast furnace units at plants in the GSPT. The Global Electric Arc Furnace Tracker (GEAFT) will track details about electric arc furnace feedstocks for electric arc furnace units at plants in the GSPT. These trackers provide important information for understanding the opportunities and challenges of transitioning the global iron and steel industry to cleaner production.
According to the Intergovernmental Panel of Climate Change (IPCC), we have less than a decade to make massive and unprecedented changes in the global economy to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. To meet that challenge, Global Energy Monitor is creating trackers and other tools to provide detailed information on energy facilities, sponsors, and financing.
