Many renewable engineers become self-employed or work as contractors and this could be an avenue that you decide to take after a few years of gaining experience. Potential customers are office firms, residential property owners, insurance companies, building firms and local authorities. Working for yourself could mean that you decide what hours you work and what amount of money you charge.
