My Journey to 100% Renewables
A couple of weeks ago, I joined the team at 100% Renewables as Renewable Energy Consultant and soon after got asked to write a blog post about my journey. Currently, in the world, a lot of things are exploited, for example, fossil fuels, animals, and children. I believe we all have a responsibility to correct the imbalance in this world. My way of correcting this imbalance is to work with organisations to help them achieve a socially responsible outcome such as moving to 100% renewable energy, reducing reliance on fossil fuels and promoting a clean and healthier environment.
Renewable energy has been something that I’ve always been passionate about. It’s an industry where I always wanted to work in. When I heard about the company 100% Renewables I knew straight away just from the name that this is where I wanted to work. As I explored what the company did, I saw all the great projects the company was involved in and instantly could see myself working there.
My interest in renewable energy came from when I moved here from India. In India, I was bombarded with the smell of smog, pollution, uncleanliness on the streets, and children begging on the streets. Coming to Australia I saw the difference in air quality, how people are treated more fairly, and the cleanliness of the environment.
Later at 13 years of age and older, my interest in renewables grew, along with my understanding of smog and that it was caused by human factors. The more information I gathered about smog and pollution, the more I was pointed in the direction of renewable energy as the solution.
I decided to become an engineer, inspired by my Grandfather who was an electrical engineer, where most of his work was done in constructing and developing dams for electricity generation. I want to continue his efforts to bring renewable energy to the world.
I aspire to make a change in this world and to work for a company that aligns with my goals – that’s why I chose to work for 100% Renewables, a company that proves that the journey to 100% renewables is not fiction, it is fact. I have already started to work on many exciting projects and I am looking forward to introducing myself to you over the next couple of weeks and months.
