Hope this Helps
Also, if you are interested, many companies where the core business is not the energy, have an especial department that manage the energy consumption of its operations.
For example, I work in Cemex, and the core business is the company is the cement sales/construction but it has an especial department that manage the energy consumption of the cement plants.
My best advice would be to understand how different types of companies and organizations in renewables function in order to identify the teams and skillsets that are most applicable. Additionally, look to target alumni from your institution(s) as well as those with career trajectories similar to what you hope to follow.
Additionally, identify the ways that you can position relevant experience in the classroom and beyond for renewables, as most developers and other companies do not have formal internship programs and will require you to begin contributing from day one. Finally, reach out to recruiters and hiring managers with your resume and time to chat to build connections. The industry is much smaller than it seems and positive relationships will get you where you want to be!
On the LinkedIn side, it's fairly easy to at least identify companies that operate in that space. They may or may not advertise internship/job opportunities on their LinkedIn pages, but it doesn't hurt to reach out to folks working there and ask for an informational chat. Really just focus on learning more about the company, the work they do, etc. I hope this helps!
