CA Energy Consulting is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Christensen Associates. We are a team of bright, hard-working, and congenial people who apply economic and engineering principles to our clients’ real-world challenges. All team members of CA Energy Consulting are employees or affiliates of Christensen Associates. If you would like to join us, please visit the Christensen Associates careers page to see and apply for one of our available positions.
Christensen Associates is made up of economists, programmers, engineers, MBAs, and support staff in various capacities. All of us are self-starters with a fine attention to detail and an intuitive ability to prioritize competing tasks. We value excellent communication skills more than most, not only because we pride ourselves on delivering superior reports, but also because every one of us interacts directly with our clients. A majority of our consultants have graduate degrees, and a sizable percentage have earned doctorates. Our solutions to our clients’ problems are firmly grounded in theory, and we maintain high scientific standards in our empirical research. We immerse ourselves in the institutional details of our clients’ industries; this means expect our hires to be a quick study.
We’re a small business that is flexible by design. So while we usually hire and develop freshly minted economics graduates, we also sometimes lure established consultants and industry experts who work for us in their own offices. We also partner with Affiliates, typically university professors or researchers, who testify to economic issues at trial. For these individuals, we provide a gamut of litigation support services. If the benefit exceeds the cost, we’ll find a way to make it work.
If you believe you might be a good fit for Christensen Associates in one of our available positions, we would very much like to hear from you.
Christensen Associates is an Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity Employer.

"Being a part of the administrative team at Christensen Associates is a role requiring one to wear many hats. New challenges abound every day.
