About Renewable Energy

Renewable Energy is the energy of the future, it is energy that comes from resources that are naturally renewed such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves and geothermal heat.

There are many people involved in this industry from the people that design and engineer the most efficient ways of generating and transporting energy to the people that install and maintain installations such as wind turbines and solar farms. The offshore wind farms in the East of England provide many opportunities but there are also opportunities in hydro, solar and bio power.

Low carbon energy production is one of the fastest growing industries in the UK and worldwide. In the next ten years, it is estimated that the value of offshore wind will reach £75 billion and 70,000 jobs will be created. Suffolk is certain to benefit from the expansion in the energy sector. This means developing associated supply chains, movement of materials through ports and logistics, innovations in advanced manufacturing and technology to link wind farms to power grids.

Suffolk is also developing a specialist skills base to take advantage of the new jobs emerging in the East Anglian energy industries. Plans are being drawn up for an energy training centre in the Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth area and existing training providers are developing specialist courses.

This sector has one of the highest growth potentials meaning there really is no better time to get into the renewable energy business!

What else is there? Well there are many other options from marine biologists to project engineers as well as sales assistants to sell equipment such as solar panels and even geo-scientists who examine the sea bed to make sure it is suitable to build turbines.

There are lots of niches that you won’t have heard about – find out more here!

Did You Know?
At any given time, it’s estimated that 15 trillion watts of power are being used across our planet.
