Why Electricians Are in Growing Demand in the Expanding Green Economy

Written by on March 18, 2019 in News Flash with 1 Comment

Back in 2009, it was predicted that electricians will be in great demand – especially for the growth of green construction in years to come. Now, it is becoming true as green construction has become a $48 billion industry and growing. McGraw-Hill Construction has confirmed that electricians are high in demand in the green economy.

Electricians with electrical skills are needed to join an array of green construction careers today from building management projects to renewable energy installations. To take advantage of the green economy, professionals in the electrical trade will require a green skill set. Speaking of the most current electrical engineers in commercial and residential sectors, this website has a skilled team that has made its mark in green construction with today's most required skill set in the industry.

In this article, we are going to discuss these skill sets and why they are becoming good reasons to keep electricians higher in demand especially in the green economy.

Reason # 1 – Electricians Have an In-Depth Knowledge About Renewable Energy Installations Projects

In this particular division, electricians have a couple of skills to accommodate renewable energy installation projects:

1. Photovoltaic Codes
Electricians have a deep knowledge about photovoltaic codes, equipment, materials, article 690 electrical code and all safety standards for working with photovoltaics. In conjunction with all these expertise, electrical engineers know the best way to reconfigure systems while linking electrical circuitry.

2. Wind Turbine
Another reason why electricians are in growing demand in the green economy is that they have a skill set of working with wind turbines. They can work at high altitudes and know how to deliver electrical power from low, medium and high voltages. If going beyond these skills, a highly expert electrician comes into the picture, this highly skilled electrician knows how to work on these types of projects. They are capable enough to get the maximum amount of electricity using hydraulics and proper gearing and torquing the wind turbines.

Reason # 2 – Electricians Have an In-Depth Knowledge About Energy Management Projects

1. Energy Auditing
Electricians have strong systematic expertise and comprehension of the way HVAC and lighting can impact overall energy consumption. On top of that, they are well experienced in integrating systems with communication systems. This project demands a high skill set of a seasoned electrician.

2. Familiarity with Building Management Systems (BMS)
Most of the energy companies emphasise on training professionals to operate motion activated sensors and understand the programmable logic controls, which means that electrical engineers in most of these roles must know how to manage electrical and digital systems.

3. LEED Expertise
It is estimated that about 40% of electrical contractors opt for a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design or LEED certification yearly. Having an in-depth knowledge of LEED standards, these professionals are experts in synchronising sustainable energy installations and accruing (and tracking) LEED credits with energy management projects.
