Students seeking to deepen their knowledge in a specialized area should consider taking a certificate program. Certificates are often offered on a part-time basis, allowing students to study while still attending to other commitments.

Students interested in entering the rapidly growing renewable energy field may want to enroll in a certificate program in the specialty. What is a certificate in renewable energy? It is often taught as a series of courses in the science and policy surrounding traditional and renewable energy technologies. Some certificate programs allow students to choose a subset of courses available in the catalog to focus on their areas of interest, whether that is in political policy or science and engineering. Students might also study the renewable energy industry, learning about how the economy drives scientific discovery and policy development in this critical area.

Earning a certificate is a sure way to improve your career prospects. In the process of earning the certificate, students gain a host of technical skills, but may also learn about project development and management while developing invaluable networking skills, all of which are sure to be useful throughout their careers.

Costs associated with earning a renewable energy certificate depend on the location of the school and the program itself. Students should consider multiple programs while deciding which certificate program is right for them.

Students who have earned a certificate in renewable energy have also improved their career options. Depending on their focus, students may choose to go in a political, technological, or industrial direction. Those entering policy could become political consultants or aids. Those who focused on the technology of renewable energy could take jobs in industrial or academic labs, and those who studied the industry may become industry consultants or project managers.

To find out which renewable energy certificate program is right for you, consult our program listing. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

This e-learning course is developed and implemented jointly with the Frankfurt School - UNEP Collaborating Cente. The Paris Agreement marks the beginning of a new era with the focus shifting from finding a consensus on the common goals to realizing jointly agreed goals. “Making finance flows consistent with a pathway towards low greenhouse gas emissions and climate-resilient development” (Article 2 c of the Paris Agreement) will require a significant increase in funding – with new instruments and approaches required to mobilize a broad range of investors and to achieve scalability in financing climate action. Financing the global energy transition will be one key building block. Decreasing prices for renewables combined with increasing regulatory risk for traditional fossil fuels make Renewable Energy (RE) more competitive and attractive for commercial investors. -
