Many people are asking me whether the economic recovery plan will stimulate jobs in green energy and green building. My answer is yes. Definitely.

What areas will we see growth? 

One hot area, of course, is renewable energy — solar electricity, wind energy, geothermal and others. Expect jobs in residential renewable energy as well commercial renewable energy production.

Energy efficiency could be even bigger. These measures offer the most benefit for the least cost.

I expect a lot of jobs in green building, too, at residential and commercial levels. I just read Five Hot Future Careers — Train Now by Woodrow. Aames says that green construction management will be one of the top new jobs in the near future — and a lucrative one, too.

If you are interested in a career in residential green building or renewable energy, be sure to check out our workshops at The Evergreen Institute.
