Renewable Energy Engineering is involved with the production of energy through natural resources, such as the extraction of oil and gas, as well as from renewable or sustainable sources of energy, including biofuels, hydro, wind and solar power. Energy engineers are focused on finding efficient, clean and innovative ways to supply energy. They work in a variety of roles including: Designing and testing machinery; Developing ways of improving existing processes; Converting, transmitting and supplying useful energy to meet our needs for electricity. They research and develop ways to generate new energy, reduce emissions from fossil fuels and minimise environmental damage.

The renewable energy industry is expanding rapidly. As the demand for oil and gas rises, pressure for businesses to reduce carbon emissions and be more energy efficient increases. In turn, this has led to a growth in renewable or sustainable sources of energy such as solar, wind and hydropower.
Due to the demand in this area, career opportunities are good and in most instances there will be the chance to work up to a senior engineer or management position. This may require moving employers to a bigger company or possibly having to relocate. Achieving chartered status can help with professional development and may lead to higher salaries. It is possible to reach fellowship level with organisations such as the EI. You will typically need to have been in a role for more than seven years and have spent at least five of those in a senior role.
