ALEXIS GREENE
Public Relations And Communications
Community Environmental Center
• Learn weatherization skills. As the holder of New York State's largest weatherization contract, the Community Environmental Center can attest to the demand for energy efficiency specialists.
• Learn how to conduct energy audits. Many of New York's aging structures need to be checked for air leaks, electrical efficiency, and water quality.
• Blaze your own trail: if you possess the proper qualifications, you may be able to start your own Green Training and Assistance program at organizations like a local YMCA.
Community Environmental Center's Alexis Greene works with local government, green building and training organizations, and local community leaders to increase visibility for Community Environmental Center's energy efficiency assistance programs for low-income communities.

The center also offers green workforce training in energy efficiency, partnering with Green City Force to prepare youth from low-income backgrounds for sustainable careers. As a major provider of green building and energy efficiency consultation, Community Environmental Center is a leader in New York's green building community. Their success suggests that emerging professionals should place high consideration on the New York green building market.
ROB SISSON
President
Republicans For Environmental Protection
• Working as a staffer in a political organization is a good place to get into environmental politics.
• All members of congress employ an environmental legislative assistant.
• You can work on sustainability inside corporations. Look for positions as Corporate Responsibility Officers or Sustainability Officers.
Republicans for Environmental Protection is an organization dedicate to restoring the GOP's great conservation legacy. Rob cites several environmental Republican presidents who established milestones in our nation. Abraham Lincoln protected Yosemite. Ulysses S. Grant created Yellowstone, the first national park. Theodore Roosevelt championed conservation by designating 150 National Forests and five national parks. Even conservative icon Ronald Reagan ratified the Montreal Protocol to protect the Ozone Layer. Rob's expertise is in Republican environmental politics but his advice could just as easily translate to the Democratic Party. While any college major can lead to a career in politics, law degrees are very common and any classes in environmental science would also be helpful. Look for entry level positions as political staffers, at think tanks, or in foundations.
MICA ODOM
National Energy Media Director
Environmental Defense Fund
• Mica attended Columbia Business School and concentrated in Social Enterprise. Look to Ivy League MBA programs for business training in sustainable energy.
• Internships, even unpaid, or other networking opportunities are the key to getting your foot in the door in green and environmental industries.
• MBA and business students should look to Net Impact for networking opportunities in green and environmental industries. Net Impact has chapters on most campuses in many cities, and the web site includes a jobs page.
Environmental Defense Fund (EDF), a leading national nonprofit organization, creates transformational solutions to the most serious environmental problems. EDF links science, economics, law, and innovative private-sector partnerships. As National Energy Media Director for the Environmental Defense Fund, Mica Odom has insight into career success in green marketing. Mica points to the success of past EDF campaigns such as the 2007 landmark deal that canceled eight coal-fired power plants proposed in Texas and adopted an unprecedented set of environmental initiatives, preventing 57 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions per year.

Mica's career highlights the importance of business skills in the green and environmental industry. MBA programs in both the Ivy League and state schools are offering innovative programs that highlight green and environmental business training. The economic push from MBA students trained in sustainable business models is currently demonstrating the viability of green career fields such as engineering, green building, renewable energy finance, green marketing, and philanthropic foundations with an environmental focus.
JAIMIE CLOUD
Founder And President
The Cloud Institute For Sustainability Education
• Sustainability educators look for employees to demonstrate out-of-the-box thinking paired with a capacity for systems thinking and teaching and learning skills.
• A growing need: sustainability coordinators will be in demand as schools ramp up planning for sustainability and start retrofitting their facilities to green certification standards.
• Get specific: Green Drinks is a good meet-up to get started networking, but ultimately reaching out to industry specific organizations will bring the best results. The Business Alliance for Local Living Economies (BALLE); the American Sustainable Business Council and Social Ventures Network are good sources for sustainable businesses.
"All jobs in the future will be green jobs, or they won't exist," says Jaimie Cloud, founder of The Cloud Institute for Sustainability Education. Educating for sustainability is an essential step in building a green economy. The Cloud Institute works with educational institutions in the pre-kindergarten to 12th grade range to enact sustainable organizational change, develop curriculum that educates for sustainability, and to develop authentic relationships between administrators, educators, students, and their communities.

Jaimie believes the greening of the U.S. educational system will create many jobs in New York and around the world. Among the growing list of colleges teaching sustainability, she lists Columbia University's Teachers College and Earth Institute and the Pratt Institute's Environmental Planning, Policy, and Sustainability programs as indicators of New York's prominence in the growing sustainability job sector.
HILARY BEBER
Senior Policy Analyst
New York City Mayor's Office Of Long-Term Planning And Sustainability
• New York has private and state-sponsored clean technology incubators, such as Polytechnic Institute of New York University's NYC ACRE program, that host networking events.
• The Mayor's Office partners with the Urban Green Council, a major networking channel.
• The city and New York State Energy Research and Development Authority work with the various City University of New York campuses, making these schools an excellent option for aspiring green professionals.
As Energy and Green Building Policy Analyst for the New York City Mayor's Office, Hilary works on legislation to address energy efficiency in existing buildings. She also works with architects, engineers, building owners, and property managers to improve the city's energy efficiency and green building standards. Her colleagues in the Mayor's Office are providing similar assistance in other areas of green business through programs such as Green Light New York, an upcoming lighting resource center. In addition to green retrofitting, clean tech incubators, and clean tech research at New York's world-class academic institutions, New York's sustainability policies make the city a leading market for green jobs.

MICHAEL JOHNSON-CHASE
Green Workforce Director
Solar 1
• On the one hand: contractors prioritize construction background over a college degree.
• On the other hand: A professional with a marketing degree that obtains green building experience becomes highly employable if they subsequently move back to the marketing and sales of renewable building products and services.
• In green building, it is crucial to understand the policy differences of individual communities. This can often be determined by going to the organizations that provide incentives to green building contractors. In New York, the primary incentive provider is the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority.
Green Workforce Director Michael Johnson-Chase heads up the Workforce Training Program for Solar One, a seven year affiliate of the Community Environmental Center. Solar One partner's with workforce training partners to provide classes including building performance, solar-thermal training, and electrical retrofitting for commercial businesses. In addition to Solar One's training programs, the organization serves as an educational model for energy efficiency, producing most of its own energy through solar power. Outreach partners include many green building contractors, government agencies like NYSERDA, and program officials with the New York City Mayor's office, giving Solar One a unique perspective on the green economy in New York. Michael recommends sending resumes to approved energy efficiency contractors and cultivating relationships with them. Although it is sometimes necessary to start out as a volunteer when no prior construction background exists, Michael says aspiring green-collar workers can subsequently find job opportunities in building performance analysis, retrofitting contracts, and other areas of the green building industry.
TRIA CASE
Director Of Sustainability
City University Of New York
• The City University of New York (CUNY) through its centers, initiatives and 23 colleges, sponsors several energy conferences each year such as Sustainable CUNY's NYC Solar Summit. Later this month through the Center for Sustainable Energy, CUNY will sponsor the Alternative Vehicle Technology Conference and expo. Conferences such as these are excellent networking venues.
• The City University of New York's new commercialization program for cleantech, CUNY SustainableWorks,is building a Commercialization Center that will also include opportunities for students to gain experience in the development, prototyping, testing, and showcasing of new technologies with some of the top companies in the country.
• CUNY offers training in sustainability related fields such as green building, geothermal, solar thermal, solar electric, alternative vehicle technology, and energy services technology.
A million solar roofs. This stunning figure represents New York City's potential to be the top urban solar market in the country. Through its leadership of the U.S. Department of Energy's Solar America City Partnership for NYC, Sustainable CUNY is mapping out a way to this realization. In partnership with the mayor's office, Sustainable CUNY has created the most advanced solar map in the world. Made available online, the map offers detailed modeling of every building in the city and the potential for solar development there, as well as existing solar development. "The NYC Solar Map is a key tool to educate business, the financial sector, and the general public about the financial and environmentally benefits of solar," said Tria Case, University Director of Sustainability and the lead for the solar partnership. "Getting the public interested will be essential to moving forward." One of the keys to the U.S. DOE's success with the Solar America City program in NYC was placing leadership at Sustainable CUNY where the program could benefit from stable leadership that wouldn't suffer turnover during election years. As the largest urban university in the country, CUNY has provided the infrastructure and the leadership to keep the city's solar agenda on track. "Solar power production has grown six fold," Case said, "Further; in 2007 there were only 5 solar installation companies in New York City. Now there are 21- streamlining the process is growing green jobs." Sustainable CUNY has recently kicked off its CUNY SustainableWorks Commercialization Program, which provides a pathway into the NYC marketplace, the largest in the country, for new cleantech. Start-ups provide a huge boost to net-gain jobs in the economy, and Case says that the CUNY SustainableWorks program capabilities make it ideal for bringing products to market that need to be tested within the existing urban infrastructure. "For the public to adopt a new technology, they need a seamless transition from the existing technology to a clean technology. Being tested within existing infrastructure is key. The new CUNY SustainableWorks Commercialization Center will be the place for that process," Case said. Sustainable CUNY ultimately seeks to improve the NYC energy market through its sustainable energy programs and initiatives. New York's many legacy buildings have infrastructure codes that need to be integrated into efforts to increase sustainable energy technology adoption, which Case noted as a key to making sustainable energy technologies affordable and competitive. "It's so important to streamlining the path to jobs," she added.
CHRISTINE KARLOVIC
Senior Business Manager
Own Energy
• Wind energy developers at companies like Own Energy require good interpersonal skills, as they frequently communicate with local development partners.
• Risk management is an important skill set for job candidates in energy development fields where there are no guarantees that projects will succeed.
• The American Wind Energy Industry Association (AWEIA), the American Council On Renewable Energy (ACORE), and Wind on the Wires are all excellent networking organizations for those looking for employment in the wind energy industry.
New York-based Own Energy practices a unique business partnership model that is drawing attention to the economic potential of community wind projects, (generally ranging between 10-80 megawatts.) One of the early setbacks in the development of wind energy in the United States stemmed from the relatively small boost that corporate wind developments often brought the local economies in which the wind farms were being built. As a result, NIMBY (Not In My Back Yard) attitudes toward wind energy development became an increasing drag on the industry.

Own Energy's business structure acknowledges the need to include local communities in both the process and potential profit of wind energy development. Under their partnership model, local entrepreneurs take on the role of lead development representative and build local support as well as the capital and land agreements to ensure that each community wind project receives the best chance to succeed.

Founded in 2007 with a staff of four, the company has since grown to an office of 16. With experts in project development, finance, geographic information systems, and engineering, among others, jobs at companies like Own Energy will be crucial to the growth of the wind energy industry.
