Communications Manager Kate Pluord explained that the statistics compiled for the report went outside the 'known universe' of clean energy to include companies that did not identify themselves as clean energy companies but that had employees or were involved in business interactions that affected the state's clean energy cluster.The report findings demonstrate the reach of the clean energy community's influence on the greater Massachussetts economy.

Bergey Windpower
• Get hands-on experience. If you are looking for training as a wind turbine technician, make sure that the program has a wind turbine and a tower on site.
• New Mexico State University's College of Engineering is becoming known for their wind program. They were awarded a $2 million grant for equipment to develop large-scale wind blade and component test facilities.
• Look oversees. The European market for wind energy is more developed that the US market. Wind Turbine technology is moving quickly in countries such as Holland.
Bergey Energy, a prominent Oklahoma wind energy company, is a pioneer in the Wind Turbine market. Bergey Energy developed from wind turbine research at the University of Oklahoma in the 1970s. Today, Bergey sells and manufactures wind turbines that are used around the world, including such far flung markets as Kenya, Romania, and Fiji.
AARON MYRAN
Recruitment Director
Green Corps
• Anyone with a mind for organizing can excel. Green Corps graduates hold a broad range of undergraduate degrees including literature, philosophy, and politics.
• The internet has changed the organizing possibilities for advocacy groups, but nothing can replace the person-to-person experience gained through canvassing and networking.
• A career in advocacy doesn't require graduate study, so start out with an organization that focuses on training, such as the Public Interest Research Group or the Fund for the Public Interest.
Aaron is a Green Corps alumnus who loved the program so much that he stayed with the organization to head up recruitment efforts. With between 2,000-3,000 applicants a year, Green Corps' Field School for Environmental Organizing is very selective. Alumni typically go on to fill some of the most sought-after employment opportunities in organizations around the country. Alumni have become executives for national and international organizations such as Rock the Vote and Greenpeace.

Aaron counts Boston as an excellent community for environmental professionals, with a number of Green Corps alumni staying in the area with organizations such as Corporate Accountability International. A number of large national environmental advocacy groups with a national presence call Boston home. Environmental professionals should list Boston among the best job markets.
JANINE PANCHOK-BERRY
Paralegal
National Environmental Law Center
• Jump the experience gap: seek environmental organizing experience in college and improve the chances of moving into an environmental law position soon after graduating.
• A number of environmental law organizations in Boston offer internships for undergraduates and law students alike, such as Environment America, the Conservation Law Foundation, and many others.
• Strong writing skills are a heavily weighted consideration when seeking entry-level work in Environmental Law.
In her work with the National Environmental Law Center, Janine helps national and state citizen groups seek representation for a wide range of environmental issues, from cutting harmful air pollution to ensuring our lakes and beaches are healthy and clean. Due to the great number of environmental organizations with offices in Boston, the city offers a highly competitive market for environmental legal practice with excellent employment opportunities.
