The good news about the internet is that it provides us with an endless supply of information and resources. The bad news about the internet is that you have to navigate an endless supply of information and resources to find the content you really want.
Keeping up with industry news is important if you want to pursue a career in renewable energy. Here are five blogs covering industry news, innovations and policies that you can add to your digital reading list.
From the latest technology innovations, to tips for how to save money on your energy bills, the U.S. Department of Energy's blog runs the gamut. It's also a great resource for keeping up on research from its national labs, as well as government initiatives around alternative energy.
The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA), the national trade association for the U.S. wind industry, posts content several times a week about all things wind energy. Follow their blog if you particularly want to keep up with growth and changes in the industry, as well as employment trends in the United States. They also have a “Fact Check” series, which addresses misconceptions about wind energy.

In addition to keeping readers up to date on what the organization is up to, they regularly highlight national news and events related to solar energy and provide industry insight.
