I was thinking about doing a degree in Chemistry and I would like to work in the renewable energy industry. Help develop biofuels and what not. I also have a keen interest in pharmaceuticals and forensic science. Is a Chemistry degree a good choice if I want to keep my options open? I don't know exactly in which field I would like to work yet. I have just narrowed it down to these fields and I would like the degree I do to cover all of these areas of interest.

Any advice?

Chemists are doing the work on biofuels and improving the chemistry in things like solar PV cells and batteries. Improved battery technology is probably the single biggest area needed for renewables (you need to store it until you use it) and there will be massive investment for a long time. Look at the battery factory Tesla Motors are investing in as an example.
