n energy engineer is involved with the production of energy through natural resources, such as the extraction of oil and gas, as well as from renewable or sustainable sources of energy, including biofuels, hydro, wind and solar power.
Energy engineers are focused on finding efficient, clean and innovative ways to supply energy. They work in a variety of roles including:
- designing and testing machinery;
- developing ways of improving existing processes;
- converting, transmitting and supplying useful energy to meet our needs for electricity.
They research and develop ways to generate new energy, reduce emissions from fossil fuels and minimise environmental damage.
