One of the most popular ideas for creating a greener future is to find renewable sources of energy, and one of the most popular renewables is solar. In the past decade, more and more homes and individuals have started adapting solar panels to power their daily lives, to access power in remote areas, and to save money. This economic development has generated many jobs, including Daavid Christa’s.
With a background in engineering start-ups and apprenticeship training at Telsa, Daavid is a 20-year-old leading salesman for Stadtwerke Krefeld, one of the biggest Energy companies in Germany. He and his team are in charge of expanding SWK’s market in Berlin and the state of Brandenburg. During his first month at work, he broke the company’s sales record. Daavid sees the explosion of energy consumption first-hand and understands the need to address the issue of sustainability:
“Electric vehicles are getting popular. More and more electronic devices are being sold every year around the world. Humans are reaching the limits of our electrical grid. How are we going to support this new demand? How can we make it sustainable? Solar panels are only getting more efficient and cost-effective at lightning speed, the price of a solar roof might be 3 times less in 10 years. Furthermore, by having the ability to generate power independently from the grid, consumers can be free of international trade uncertainty.”
According to the Department of Energy (USA), "As a renewable source of power, solar energy has an important role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and mitigating climate change, which is critical to protecting humans, wildlife, and ecosystems. Solar energy can also improve air quality and reduce water use from energy production."
The age of global solar energy may be upon us. We look forward to learning more about the career opportunities in this sector from Daavid!
