Renewable Energy Jobs

Renewable Energy Job Overview


Renewable energy is an industry that concentrates on generating power using methods that are sustainable and environmentally friendly. Much of the industry focus is on technology that exists now, such as bioenergy, geothermal, hydro, tidal, wind and solar sources. However, the industry also focuses on emerging renewable energy technologies, and many Renewable Energy Jobs deal with research and development. In the more practical arenas, the field is quite broad and ranges from engineers at one end of the spectrum to salespeople and consultants at the other. Within the travel domain, Renewable Energy Jobs tend to focus on reducing the footprint related to tourism and business-related transportation.

Renewable Energy Jobs Education Requirements


Renewable Energy Engineers require a strong understanding of engineering science, technology, mathematics, physics and construction. The vast majority of Renewable Energy Engineers employed by companies have at least a bachelor’s degree and many have a master’s or doctoral degree. Professionals in a sales or consultation role, on the other hand, can fill entry-level positions with a high school diploma or some college experience. However, these positions will still require a strong understanding of renewable energy science, and career potential is generally directly related to the professional’s skills and experience within those fields. Due to the nature of the industry, nearly all Renewable Energy Jobs require some form of ongoing education.

Renewable Energ Job Market


There are many possibilities for engineers within the renewable energy domain. Industrial Engineer with an emphasis on sustainable energy is a strong starting point. There are more than 200,000 such jobs available, growth of about 5 percent is expected from 2012-2022 and no previous job experience is generally required. For professionals who desire consultation and sales roles, the forecast is more difficult to pin down due to these positions being lumped in with many unrelated careers. Nevertheless, the job market for sales and consultants within scientific and technical domains is experiencing modest growth. Note that professionals with the skills and experience to fill sales and consulting roles related to renewable energy may also be able to fill Business Travel Consultant Jobs and Sustainable Tourism Jobs.

Renewable Energy Jobs Salary Info


Statistics indicate that Industrial Engineers can expect $37.92 per hour or $78,860 annually, and earning potential is even higher for engineers who move beyond the industrial domain. For sales and consultant positions, the average earnings potential is $35.95 an hour or $74,780 annually.
