Some of the biggest opportunities for energy improvements occur in the building trades.

This program presents an overview of job opportunities in this booming industry where there is a high demand for trained professionals, designers, and workers to help improve the efficiency of commercial and residential buildings through better design of new buildings and smart improvements to existing structures.

Making our homes and offices more energy efficient is an enormous challenge, but the potential cost savings and benefits for the environment are significant. Government mandates, tax credits, and rebates are adding additional incentives. A job in a green construction trade can enable a young person, with a minimal amount of training, to get a foot in the door of the green economy.

Jobs profiled in this program include:
Solar Installer, Lighting Technician, Energy Auditor. Also interviewed are Stephanie Stone and Dr. Frank Alameda of the California Academy of Sciences who discuss some of the key innovations in green buildings developed by architects and engineers. 20 minutes, color.

Grade Levels: 7 to Adult
