Energy is hot, so to speak!

"Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it." Goethe

That just happens to be my favorite quote from my favorite German philosopher, poet, thespian and art coach of all time. And yes, I have a German heritage ;-)

But the "begin it" encouragement couldn't be more appropriate than applied to the green jobs frontier. Boldness is definitely needed. And a dash of magic!

Gregory McNamee has written a handy guide to "Careers in Renewable Energy" -- a small book with expansive possibilities for job seekers and career shapers.

Even though opportunities abound in clean energy, they can be difficult to locate and plan for, and get educated or certified for. I discovered that as I created the first 200 job certification entries in our "" directory.

Training is coming online rapidly -- community colleges, universities and trade associations are starting to offer new courses and cross-platform programs.

Governor Bill Richardson of New Mexico gives this book his blessiing, "The clean energy economy is booming across the United States and around the world. Careers in Renewable Energy is a sophisticated and user-friendly guide for finding meaningful job opportunities in the renewable energy sector."

"Careers in Renewable Energy" is equally useful for adults needing to retool their careers and students looking for green-collar careers that will last for several decades.

McNamee has identified 50 schools that are leading the training pathway into renewable energy revolution -- the clean energy economy.

From research and engineering to all kinds of skilled trades, renewable energy jobs can be found in both energy companies and traditional companies that need to green their operations and logistics. Or convert waste into biofuels. Traditional fields such as sales, customer service and project management all can be spiced up with expertise and knowledge in clean energy niches and applications.

This career guide includes the obvious green energy fields of solar and wind, but also includes bioenergy, hydrogen energy and fuel cells, geothermal energy, hydro power, green building, energy management and green transportation.

McNamee brings a wealth of knowledge about ecology and science to this career guide. He has written or edited twenty-six books and over 3,000 periodical pieces on ecology and natural history.
