Geothermal Energy Industry Workers

Work Environment

Work environments for geothermal energy industry workers vary by occupation. Drilling crews work outdoors when they operate heavy drilling tools to locate new reservoirs and drill production wells. Construction workers also spend a considerable amount of time outside in occasionally challenging weather conditions during the construction of power plants. Scientists and engineers work both indoors and outdoors, in laboratories and offices, as well as at geothermal sites. Secretaries, receptionists, computer professionals, human resources workers, and other support professionals work indoors in climate-controlled offices. Support professionals typically work a standard 40-hour week. Construction workers and engineers may have to work overtime to meet production deadlines.
