Renewable energy engineers apply engineering principles to develop and implement sustainable energy technologies. As a renewable energy engineer, your work could include:
- Helping homes and businesses to ‘green’ themselves by carrying out energy audits and integrating renewable energy systems into their premises;
- Developing renewable energy plans at local and national level;
- Designing and manufacturing the materials necessary to create renewable energy systems.
Your work would assist communities, industries and countries in harnessing renewable resources like wind, sunlight, biomass, geothermal heat and rivers, thereby creating a greener world!
