I am graduating from college with a degree in environmental studies. I would like to work in the public sector, but where does government stand in relation to the private sector as it pertains to practicing and innovating of green technologies?
You might be suprised. Local govements have been early adapters, partially due to regulatory requirements, for the use of alternative fuels. Many cities have sustainability initiatives to encourage solar energy, recycling, source reduction, electric vehicles, and other green standards. States and the feds have agencies dedicated to promoting green tech in various ways, someone has to work for these agencies! Maybe it will be you.
