What does an Energy Engineer do?
Energy engineers work on projects designed to reduce energy use or costs. They research how to generate new energy to reduce carbon emissions, minimize environmental damage, and carry-out site inspections and energy surveys. They often design systems that assist with a larger process and propose designs that interact with more extensive systems to make them more energy-efficient. They must first observe specific aspects including how equipment, machinery, and workers interact.
Energy engineers adhere to federal guidelines, set budgets, and ensure that work schedules are appropriate for an agreed-upon completion date. They need a general understanding of the current energy market and knowledge of relevant legislation around energy efficiency, carbon emissions, and steps to implement efficient systems that comply with legal standards. Energy engineers need a minimum bachelor's degree in engineering science to focus on electrical, mechanical, environmental, or chemical engineering.
