With so many different opportunities in energy, it is helpful to understand the types of energy sources
that drive business in this sector. Most energy companies have built their business around one or more
of the following energy sources:
Coal, Oil & Natural GasBecause these resources have so many different uses, there are a variety of exciting careers
opportunities. Companies tend to be very large, with domestic and international opportunities as well as
extensive budgets. There are traditional roles, such as corporate or project finance and marketing; or
emerging opportunities such as technology development and corporate social responsibility.
Nuclear EnergyAccording to the Nuclear Energy Institute, nuclear energy produces 20.2% of electricity in the United
States. Currently there is a strong political push for new plants and safer technology, increasing the
number of opportunities in this sector. The main career paths in nuclear energy are: technology
development, manufacturing and supply chain development, and plant construction and management.
A successful candidate often has an undergraduate degree in engineering and strong communication
Renewable EnergyAccording to the EIA, renewable energy has the highest rate of growth of all the energy sectors.
Currently the most widely used resources are wind, solar, geothermal, water, biomass and fuel cells.
