Clean Careers: Clean Tech Job Trends 2009
By Frank | October 19th, 2009 0 Comments
Finding a clean tech job just got a little easier.
CleanEdge’s excellent new report, Clean Tech Job Trends 2009, which is a sort of companion to its annual Clean Energy Trends report, offers those looking for a clean tech job—as well as those curious about the sector—an excellent introduction to the trends and opportunities ahead, as well as key resources for getting one’s search in motion.
Written by Ron Pernick and Clint Wilder, authors of The Clean Tech Revolution, the report details an increasingly well-funded area of industrial activity that’s growing at above average rates. And with clean-tech job growth a focus of the Obama Administration as well as that of Chinese President Hu Jintao—and aggressive clean-tech job creation going on in the Brazil, the European Union, India, and Japan—this growth is certain to continue.
Clean Tech Job Trends details the top sectors of clean-tech activity (energy, water, transportation, and materials), and the top industries within those sectors (led by solar and biofuels and biomaterials, provides median annual salary compensation data for a wide variety of roles, and identifies top U.S. metro areas for clean tech job activity (the San Francisco Bay Area is number one, followed by greater Los Angeles, New York, and Boston).
An excellent breakdown of trends discusses key drivers of clean tech jobs, including energy efficiency, an aging workforce, new career training programs, and the move of clean-tech manufacturing to end-use markets. Each trend includes a profile of a clean tech company and a list of “organizations to watch”—a useful target list of those actively looking for a clean-tech job.
The authors also look at emerging models for financing clean-tech development—an important and often misunderstood factor in launching clean tech projects—including a “green bank,” clean energy victory bonds, tax credit bonds, and federal loan guarantees.
Finally, a job resource guide lists blogs, books, conferences, and networking resources for those trying to get more information about clean tech.
Given the recessionary economy and tight job market, those looking for a clean-tech job should take advantage of all the resources they can (Jim Cassio’s Green Careers Resource Guide is another good one to check out). But Clean Tech Job Trends is exciting not just for CleanEdge’s characteristic insight into the dynamics of a complex and rapidly changing market, but because it’s a promise of future tracking that helps fill a knowledge gap.
