Clean energy technology doesn’t only give us power to control the future of our energy resources, but it also creates jobs. The number of renewable energy employment opportunities is expected to boom during the next decade in emerging technology fields such as wind, solar, geothermal, fuel cells and energy storage. In addition to needing skilled technical employees for the installation, operation and repair of the technology, these companies also will require staff who possess a blend of general technical knowledge about these fields and general business knowledge and skills.
Employees are needed to promote and sell renewable energy services, design systems, negotiate leases, run finance systems, track business operations, and keep the back office of the business running. It has been estimated that for every technical job, there will be an administrative position required. In this program students will learn the technical aspects of renewable energy production while also learning essential business management skills to work in the field.
