SOLAR SOLUTIONS POWERING AHEAD?
Generating electricity from renewable energy rather than fossil fuels offers significant public health benefits. The Energy Information Administration (EIA) has released numbers on the US electricity generation for the first quarter of 2017, and renewable energy figures are larger than predicted.
According to the EIA, renewable energy sources accounted for just over 10.5% of total electricity generation for the first quarter of 2017.
One of the most cost-effective and sustainable forms of renewable energy, out the “clean” energy solutions, is solar power. Solar energy operates through the conversion of energy from the sun to electrical energy using solar photovoltaic panels and has been around for over 30 years. This has, in turn, resulted in a rise of solar technologies in both urban and rural communities, in developed and developing countries. This has been an apparent trend observed by AS Acquisitions, a professional services executive search firm in the global renewable energy sector.
“In the last few years, we have noticed a slow but steady demand in top candidates from our clients, both in the private and public sectors, as well as an increase in credible candidates entering this space. It makes sense as it is a viable solution to the basic need of a steady source of electricity”, quoted Michael Adetona, Principal at AS Acquisitions.
In the past few years there has been a noticeable growth of public solar solutions, which includes solar electrification projects. In the private sector there has also been various residential and commercial solutions being deployed with a slow but steady increase. This growth is largely due to increased global awareness and a significant decrease in cost. Interim projects, which past candidates placed by Ace Search Acquisitions have worked on, include public solar projects such as solar street lighting solutions.
As quoted by Michael Adetona, “Renewal energy makes sense for the future of the planet. I am proud to say I source daily, to the peak of my ability, the best candidates that will, one day, help to sustain the environment for both ourselves and our children to come”
