It appears that we will have a new administration in DC, and one that is very friendly to efforts to mitigate the effects of climate change. Also the Pandemic has deprived the citizens of our country of much employment. I saw Ms. Harris (a.k.a. VEEP-Elect) in a press conference today. When asked what the new administration’s top three priorities would be, she responded: JOBS, JOBS, and JOBS. I concur.

Given the above, I would suggest that any of my fellow citizens in need of future employment should look to the title of this post. The subject of this post will be three renewable areas that should be happy hunting grounds for future employment:

  • Wind Energy Professionals
  • Solar Energy Professionals
  • Electrical Professional

It's a great time to be in the field-- I hope in particular new graduates see that!

Thanks for the comment Matt,

I'm pretty sure there will be many opportunities in renewables within a few months, and I wrote this piece to get employment-seekers to start thinking about this.

And other job opportunities. I believe the videos are from their Cato Rd. Pilot Battery Factory in Fremont, but they are building full-scale plants in Texas and Germany.
