Why Green AND Software?

According to Fast Company, “Sustainability Systems Developer” will be one of the Ten Best Green Jobs for the next decade.

The article states:

The green economy needs a cadre of specialized software developers and engineers who design, build, and maintain the networks of sensors and stochastic modeling that underpin wind farms, smart energy grids, congestion pricing and other systems substituting intelligence for natural resources. Coders with experience using large scale enterprise resource planning have an edge here, as well as developers familiar with open source and web 2.0 applications.
