Renewable Energy Careers
For many jobs in the renewable energy industry, it pays to have
a strong background in science and mathematics. For example, earth
science, agriculture, and biology classes will be useful if you
plan to work in the hydropower industry researching the effects of
a new hydropower project on the surrounding vegetation and animal
life. Mathematics, earth science, and chemistry classes will be
helpful if you plan to work in the geothermal energy industry
identifying and harvesting possible sources of geothermal energy
from within the earth. Physics classes will be helpful if you plan
to work in the wind industry designing windmills and turbine
engines to capture and convert wind energy into electricity, or
"green" buildings and homes of the future.
