Every December, I reflect and then make adjustments for January to ensure success over the forthcoming year. I’m proud to share that 2017 has been an excellent year for EnergeiaWorks. It breaks down to two additional offices opened on the west coast, two articles published, three new employees on the team, five conference speaking engagements, 18 new customers on board, 19 Renewables UnWind networking events hosted, 23 trade shows attended. And a partridge in a pear tree!
In all seriousness, we have a lot to be thankful for, but not without a lot of grit and hard work. I take extreme pride in what EnergeiaWorks has become in seven years and I value every referral that is passed to our team. Thank you to my amazing staff and thank you to our loyal customers. Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!
Early 2018 will give solar (and wind) some answers to the biggest questions in the industry. What will the trade tariff look like for solar modules? How will the proposed tax bill effect tax equity for renewable energy projects? Even though there’s a little dip because of these uncertainties, the clean energy industry is still growing faster than the overall economy. This includes the employment market as well. Since 2008, no industry has seen more significant growth than renewables. I have no doubt that once we have more certainty to these questions, our industry will be right back on track to record breaking growth.
Based on our current first quarter pipeline, we’re anticipating an extremely active employment market for renewable energy. Demand to hire sustainable energy and battery storage talent is greater than last year. When recruiters are busy, it’s a good indication that the industry is healthy. If you need assistance with your Q1 hiring strategy, please reach out to us to schedule a virtual meeting.
You can find EnergeiaWorks over the next month at Renewables UnWind in New York, DistribuTECH in San Antonio, and the CanWEA O&M Summit in Toronto. If you’re attending one of these events, please reach out to us to schedule a meeting.
