The Great Clean Tech Talent Gap

The United States has a serious gap of engineering talent in the clean tech industry. I’ve written a series of posts, which I’ll continue adding to, explaining what needs to be done.

If you’re a new student looking for guidance on how to get into clean tech or are an experienced worker with skills that you think can be transferred, please read these posts. If you have additional questions, I look forward to hearing from you via the comment section below or Twitter.

  1. The Grid Needs You. In this post I explain the gap between highly-experienced engineers who are close to retirement and the fresh crop of inexperienced recent grads. I explain why these newbies have a huge amount of work to do in overhauling the grid and list some of the top engineering schools that teach clean-tech skills.
  2. Mechanical Engineers should be Renewable Engineers: In this post I explain why mechanical engineering skills need to be emphasized more.

The Great Clean Tech Talent Gap has been a boon to professional recruiters and a royal pain in the arse for founders of clean-tech startups. President Obama is right…these are the jobs of the future!
