Smart Grid Today needs a full-time, highly skilled and agile reporter to cover federal agencies (DOE, FERC & NIST), the US Congress and the White House, for starters.  The smart grid is the most important topic in today's power industry, and our daily publication is the international journal of record.  Join a highly experienced team headed by the founder of several similar and successful publications. 

You will report on every aspect of a new industry that is ushering the century-old, analog power-distribution system into the 21st century. This effort offers dramatic improvements in utility operations to allow new developments and applications like more efficient and cost-effective power delivery, green power and electric vehicles.  We write about true paradigm shifts in the way the world will generate, store, buy and sell electrons.  We recount and examine dramatic debates at every regulatory level, in legislatures, at conferences and

in standards-setting organizations.  Our coverage is incremental, meaning we examine important firms regularly.

Ours is a virtual office: You will work from home in or around Washington, D.C.  Some US travel required. 

Job qualifications: (1) the ability to produce 1,000-1,500 words/day of accurate, precise, concise and easily digestible news copy, (2) a refined news sense and impeccable interviewing skills, (3) an explorer's curiosity and a hunger for breaking important stories, (4) strong ethics and unflagging professionalism, (5) a willingness to learn the complexities of a century-old, heavily regulated industry -- and to write with the utility perspective in mind, (6) the ability to quickly learn and adopt our signature writing style and (7) a personal commitment to excellence in journalism.  Send a CV, three or four enterprise reporting samples and a cover letter to Brett Brune at
