Many kinds of jobs can be found in the renewable energy and energy conservation industries. This pamphlet indicates that a large career potential exists within the solar and conservation professions and trades. These careers consist of individuals who design, build, or install solar heating or hot water systems, who implement energy conservation measures, or who advise such projects. These kinds of professions and trades are further classified as: (1) energy-conscious designers; (2) energy-conscious designer/builders; (3) solar and conservation installers; and (4) energy conservation consultants. For each of 22 distinct occupations the role of that occupation is briefly explained, along with the typically required training needed to work in the field and to work independently.
