Professional Associations in Wind Energy Being a Member Can Help With Career Growth and Advancement Almost every career field contains professional and trade associations, primarily to provide a link between businesses and individuals with each other as well as the latest news, procedures, and technologies within that field. The wind and wave power generation sector is no different, and despite its youth, this area currently hosts about a half of a dozen such organizations.

the field.

Two particular groups have been very active in the development of wind or wave energy (generally one or the other) field. Each group has its own activities, such as conferences and workshops, thus contributing in their own way. Due to the interconnected nature of the renewable energy field, the professional organizations may affiliate with one another, as well as carry some of the same members.

The Ocean Energy Council provides a calendar of conferences and events related to the wave energy industry. The major conference it hosts is the annual Energy Ocean, which took place this year on June 21-23 in San Diego, California. The event brought together policy makers, technologists, specialty firms, utility companies, and government officials. It featured technical sessions lead by experts in the field, an exhibition of developers and suppliers, and a dinner luau. Depending on how much of the conference a person wants to access, the price can range from $695 for a non-member to attend the full conference to one-day access to exhibits only at $15. The dates and location for 2007 have not yet been announced.

The first organization, the Ocean Energy Council (OEC), deals primarily with wave and other oceanderived energy. OEC was incorporated in Washington, D.C. over 30 years ago, but a drastic shift towards fossil fuels caused them to cease operations ten years later. Fortunately, in 2004 OEC was re-incorporated and has been in full swing ever since. The council strives to increase knowledge and acceptance of ocean energy as a viable, mainstream national and global energy supply. It also seeks to provide a forum for recommendations from the ocean energy community to the government, as well as a connection between organizations and individuals within the community. Finally, the council tries to educate the public on all aspects of ocean energy and to facilitate advancement of professionals within

The second organization, the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA), solely promotes the interests of the wind energy industry. Headquartered in Washington D.C., AWEA is a national trade organization that connects developers, manufacturers, utilities and any other professional within the field. According to its website, the association “has advocated the development of wind energy as a reliable, environmentally superior energy alternative in the United States and around the world” for more than 30 years. In the timeframe, the group has grown to almost 1000 members, including corporate and individuals. Its activities include providing up-to-date information to the public on all aspects of the wind energy industry and providing technical information to congress in renewable energy

Use Soybeans to Cool Your Car Missouri Researcher Earns EPA Award for Nontoxic Antifreeze a year, which nearly equals the industry’s total annual growth rate. Senergy president Mark Tegen called Suppes’ technology exciting and full of potential.

Galen Suppes

COLUMBIA, Mo. - High and unstable fuel costs, along with environmental concerns, have led to greater demands for biodiesel alternatives. A University of Missouri-Columbia professor, recently credited with developing a viable option using a natural resource, has selected Senergy Chemical to produce several million pounds of nontoxic automobile antifreeze annually. Research by Galen Suppes, MU chemical engineering associate professor and chief science officer of the MUbased Renewable Alternatives, focuses on propylene glycol, a soybean-based product that can be used as vehicular radiator coolant. Last year, he refined the process for converting glycerin, a byproduct of the biodiesel production process, into propylene glycol. Currently, ethylene glycol, which is toxic and made from petroleum, is prominently used for antifreeze. Suppes said Senergy has been granted the license to his technology and the Washington-based company plans to produce 100 million pounds of propylene glycol

Tegen declined to provide specifics, but said Senergy is currently building a production facility in the southeast U.S. that will be fully operational by the end of the year. He said the company’s initial goal, prior to full production, is to develop a working prototype capable of outputting at least 60 million pounds of propylene glycol, which also can be used as aircraft de-icing fluid and an additive in personal care products and laundry detergent. Currently, about a billion pounds of propylene glycol are produced annually. Although others also are involved with propylene glycol research and production, Suppes said his process works at a lower pressure and temperature than the other groups and creates a higher yield. As a result of his work, Suppes recently earned one of the Environmental Protection Agency’s top honors - the 2006 Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award. Accompanied by MU colleagues who assisted with the research, Suppes received the award June 26 in Washington, D.C. He was one of six recipients, winning in the agency’s academic category. The other four winners were manufacturing companies. Each year, the EPA recognizes individuals and organizations whose research promotes alternatives to pollution and

waste in manufacturing. “This technology met the criteria for that award in multiple ways,” Suppes said. “It uses a renewable process instead of petroleum. It’s a clean process and a great opportunity for researchers and soybean farmers to start replacing petroleum products with soybean products. It allows us to replace toxic materials with non-toxic materials.” Innovative products such a nontoxic coolant created at a university lab in Missouri help drive a new industry of green manufacturing jobs. Besides the researchers, engineers, and farmers who will help create and supply sustainability careers, many other professionals are needed for these emerging green industries. The green manufacturing industries will need economists and financial professionals to show the life cycle costs and benefits to manufacturers and material suppliers. Demand will increase for business managers and executives with an eye for profits through producing products with green materials. Green manufacturers will need talented marketing and advertising professionals who are passionate about the green products and effective in attracting customers and creating cool green careers. What a great way to use your existing business skills to make a difference for the environment.

Career Profile

Careers In Wind and Wave Energy The study of energy from the ocean and wind is a lesson in the future; this field is at the forefront of the struggle to make renewable energy a viable and permanent power source in the United States and the rest of the world. For jobseekers, this presents an exciting opportunity to start a career in an industry that is still forming, where they can participate in creating the foundation, concepts, and processes. How many professionals in the fossil fuels industry or environmental protection field can say that? The development of this renewable energy field has involved the hard work and commitment of a number of passionate professionals. However, there are many other factors that have, and still are, influencing wind and wave energy as well as the career opportunities within that field. George Hagerman, research faculty member at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, attributes the explosive growth of this renewable energy sector to high fossil fuel prices, growing demand for gas, and a lessening supply of oil. Government funding always spurs development, and that has been increasingly present; with more spending on research and development, power generated by wind and the ocean have become more viable as an alternative energy. While economic factors are definitely present, perhaps there are other, more humanistic, reasons as well. “It has to do with the nationwide realization that global warming is real, that reducing our carbon foot print is important, and that wind helps to reduce that as power generation requirements grow,” theorizes Dan Chase, Outreach Specialist for the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA). Whatever the reason is for wind and wave energy’s exponential growth, the environment as well as jobseekers are benefiting from the success. The wind and wave energy industry hosts a large variety of professions, corresponding to the multiple aspects involved in this type of power generation. “A lot of the job titles that would generally be applicable to standard power generation would also apply to windEPC contractors, permit specialists, developers, project managers, operation and maintenance operators, plant managers, financial modeler, contractor negotiators and administrators,” notes Chase. Through into the mix economists, policy analysts, and lawyers and that represents a snapshot of career paths available. Actually, the diversity of jobs is part of what makes the field interesting, according to Hagerman. Generally, career opportunities exist with the government, in the commercial sector, and with nonprofit organizations. Most vacancies will be with private companies, like Verdant Power and Energetech. Nongovernmental organizations (NGO), mostly non-profit, tend to have small staffs and hire infrequently. Also, federal and local governments have not devoted much funding to this energy field, so jobs are pretty scarce in that area. The Department of Energy (DOE) is a primary agency for wind and wave energy development, which they coordinate through the Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Program (EERE). The main focus is research and development which takes places mostly at 6

The majority of NGOs perform outreach as currently working with the Virginia Coastal Energy well as advocacy and George Hagerman is on the forefront of wind and Research Consortium, comprised of five Virginia wave energy with his research through Virginia lobbying for legislation Tech. colleges and universities, to pass Virginia energy that promotes wind or legislation which would allow for more research wave power as a renewable energy source. in wind and wave energy, as well as provide internship opportunities for students in Virginia. Jobseekers can find a variety of avenues to find vacancies. For example, when the non-profit organization Clean The wind and wave energy field is also comparable to Energy Group has an opening, they advertise on their other energy groups in terms of salary, according to website, local newspaper, and sometimes with larger Chase. Skilled labor pays more than unskilled, and publications, according to Allison Schumadher, Project professional and executive staff have higher salaries than Manager for the Clean Energy Group. As always, the support and administrative. “Generally, policy work and internet is an indispensable tool in any job search. “I advocacy don’t pay much while financers and engineers think some of the search engines are really helpful, pay pretty well; it’s the same all over energy industry,” using the key word “wind”. Energy Central and Think says a representative from the Department of Energy’s Energy are both very big and really focus on the utility WindPower America. Echoing a sentiment heard across and power generation industry,” advises Chase. the entire environmental profession, Hagerman advises “Don’t enter this field to make a quick buck; you have to “Job qualifications are basically the same throughout do it because you have a passion for it.” the power generation group,” according to Chase. Still those qualifications are as diverse as the jobs themselves. While job competition might be slightly higher due to Engineers and skilled workers will need the same the lack of established companies and organizations to licensing as with other power generation. However, hire personnel, don’t be discouraged. A representative professionals will usually need a graduate degree, such from DOE WindPower America states that “wind energy as an MBA or a JD, and support staff should possess at is growing the fastest (compared to all other renewable least a Bachelor degree, says Schumadher. Since most energy sources) and has the nearest term prospects careers in the field deal in some aspect with the energy of becoming a major power generator; it is growing production projects, she also advises candidates to gain substantially.” All signs point to a continued expansion a strong understanding of local stake holder consensus of the field and its job market. In fact, according to building processes. In other words, candidates should Chase, “Wind power is very much farther up the curve be able to build relationships where you want to locate (to mainstream power generation) than solar and other a project.

Guantanamo Harnessing Wind to Create Power, Cut Emissions generation during the high-wind months of late summer and fall. Guantanamo Bay is unique in that the base is completely self-sustaining. Most U.S. military bases in the United States and overseas get their power and water from municipal sources. But Guantanamo Bay takes no power or water from Fidel Castro’s Cuba. “This is the last of the great independent military installations,” Johnston said. “That’s not to say that all installations should go back to ‘independent steaming.’ It makes a lot of sense to use tax dollars to regionalize. … It just doesn’t work here.” Before the wind turbines, Guantanamo Bay spent $31,000 a day -- $24 a minute -- on diesel fuel to run generators around the clock to produce electricity. Since the turbines went into operation in 2005, they have been providing between 5 and 12 percent of the power the base uses. Each windmill stands 80 meters (262 feet) high. Photo by Kathleen T. Rhem

By Kathleen T. Rhem American Forces Press Service U.S. Naval Station GUANTANAMO BAY, Cuba – Public works officials here are combining ancient and modern technologies to build cost savings into the base’s energy program.

Johnston noted that spring is the “slack-wind period” and that the turbines would be able to produce more power by July. In a fortuitous coincidence, the time of day with the highest average winds is right during the base’s peak energy-usage period -- about 4 p.m., Johnston said. “By fortunate happenstance, we are expecting that when our loads are largest, our wind power will also be the largest,” he said.

“This is the world’s most ancient philosophy, combined with state-of-the-art technology,” said Navy Cmdr. Jeffrey M. Johnston, the base’s public works officer. “Harnessing the wind is arguably the first technical thing man ever did.”

In addition to generating power, the turbines have significantly cut down on emissions of greenhouse gases created through burning diesel fuel. Black clouds containing carbon dioxide can routinely be seen pouring from the diesel generators supplying power to the base’s energy grid. Johnston said using the wind turbines would have the same effect as taking 2,500 cars off Guantanamo Bay’s roads for a year – that’s fairly significant for an installation with a total population of about 10,000 people.

At 80 meters (262 feet) high, the four three-blade turbines are among the base’s most noticeable features. But they’re there for much more than just to improve the scenery. Base officials estimate the four turbines will provide as much as a quarter of the base’s power

Each turbine is anchored in “a giant, swimming poolsized block of concrete, through which 22 soil anchors are drilled into the mountain,” Johnston said. He explained that the soil anchors are sunk 30 to 40 feet deep, then sealed with grout. “So they are essentially

Since early 2005, four huge, white wind turbines have been standing guard over Guantanamo Bay from John Paul Jones Hill, the base’s highest point, named for the Revolutionary War naval hero.

nailed to the mountain,” he said of the turbines. They’re rated to withstand winds up to 140 miles per hour –equivalent to a Category 4 hurricane. “If we get to the point where those blow down, that will be the least of our worries,” Johnston said. “Because the rest of the base will probably be floating to Jamaica.” The turbines are completely automated in their functioning. Each independently senses the wind direction, turns into the wind, and controls the pitch of the blades. If they “chase the wind” and get to four full rotations, they’ll shut themselves down to unwind, Johnston said. The turbines were funded through an “energy performance savings contract” with Noresco, a Massachusetts company specializing in “energy solutions.” Through this contract, the Navy provided no up-front funds. Noresco funded the turbines, and the base will repay the company out of cost savings over about a 12-year period. The base also is realizing other cost-saving improvements through the same contract. Officials are working with Noresco to replace two older diesel generators with two spanking-new models that will run more efficiently, further reduce emissions and “generate enormous maintenance reductions,” Johnston explained. Also through this contract, base officials are improving the energy-distribution system. Before recent upgrades, Guantanamo Bay’s energy-distribution system was set up like dominoes, Johnston said. When a problem occurred somewhere along the line, it tripped the power on the entire base. “The base would lose power fence line to fence line on a fairly regular basis,” he said. He added that buzzards and Mylar balloons often get caught in power lines and cause failures. “They get caught up in the lines, and the dominoes start toppling, and the whole base is dark,” he said. A new, “more robust” system helps control outages and limits them to specific areas. “Buzzards are still there; balloons are still there,” Johnston said. “But now we have neighborhoods going down as opposed to the whole base going down.”

Terrestrial Animal Population/Community Ecologist The Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC) in Edgewater, MD is seeking a broadly-trained animal ecologist whose research could bring new technical expertise (e.g., molecular genetics, stable isotopes, remote sensing) to SERC’s current diverse research program. The applicant’s research should focus on animals in terrestrial habitats, including uplands and/or wetlands. However, the taxonomic group is open, and the research may also consider plantanimal interactions. Successful candidates will be expected to develop a research program that is primarily grant-funded, and we are particularly interested in candidates with a demonstrated interest and ability to conduct collaborative team-based research. The research program would include work in the Chesapeake Bay region and exploit SERC’s long-term study site in the Rhode River watershed of Maryland. That program will complement and integrate with existing interdisciplinary research strengths at SERC, such as invasive species, diseases, food web dynamics, landscape ecology, and human impacts in the coastal zone.

Fellowship - Post-doctoral fellowship at the Northwest Fisheries Science Center, National Marine Fisheries Service, Seattle, WA: Statistical identification of ecosystem and population indicators. Research efforts of the Mathematical Biology and Systems Monitoring Program include studies on how to most effectively monitor populations within large-scale spatially varying environments. Basic research projects within the program focus on application of modern statistical and modeling approaches to analysis of population and community processes in order to provide science support for management of species under the National Marine Fisheries Service’s jurisdiction. One of the current research interests within our group is application of newer statistical approaches for multi-variate spatial processes to the problem of identification of ‘good’ population and ecosystem indicators and to the problem of identification of change in indicators. Large quantities of monitoring data are collected on habitat and stream quality throughout the Pacific Northwest, and these monitoring data along with population counts provide a real-world test bed for research and development of statistical approaches for identification of ecosystem indicators. We are interested in supporting research proposals that will make a contribution to the statistical analysis of large-scale spatio-temporal population processes, and that apply these methods to an analysis of population and stream monitoring data available for Pacific Northwest salmonids. The post-doctoral fellow will work in collaboration with Eli Holmes (NWFSC) and Brian Dennis (University of Idaho), and will join a team of statistical and theoretical ecologists doing basic research on applied management problems. Necessary qualifications include Ph.D. in Ecology, Statistics, or related field, training in ecological time series analysis, proven record of scientific publication, and the ability to work independently. The following qualifications are desirable: R and Matlab programming skill and aquatic ecology coursework or experience. About the fellowship. This is a 1-2 year fellowship administered through the National Academies Research Associateship Program. Applicants will need to apply through the NRC website. Designate RO# 26.39.02. B5767.
