Renewable Energy: Powering the US & Powering Up Careers

With green energy employment already exceeding the amount of jobs related to the fossil fuel industry, the United States is shifting towards a future of being entirely powered by green energy. The REI’s US Renewable Energy Market Trends and Finance course discusses where potential for new investments lie, depending on geographical location as well as the capacity of the energy infrastructure. Using financial models and applying them to recent case studies, the course covers how to recognize the strengths of a variety of Green Energy sources and sustainable technologies including Solar PowerWind PowerWave and Hydro Power, and Energy Storage, and how to assess their capacity. On a project management level, the course examines which factors to consider when starting a Renewable Energy project, and how to enter into partnerships and agreements with utilities. The course also provides information on the range of funding schemes and government incentive plans available on a federal and state level.

“The instructor had a truly impressive resume, immediately demonstrated his knowledge in the field, and was able to keep our engagement. Also, many of the other participants were pretty engaged so it made for a lively and fun discussion.”
