We’re preparing the world for a future when renewable energy — solar photovoltaic, wind, battery energy storage (BESS) and hydropower, for example — represents more installed capacity than traditional power generation.
We strive to simplify this transition working at all scales and stages of renewable infrastructure planning and deployment. This can mean solving today’s renewable intermittency challenges with multiple types of renewable generation, battery storage and smart distribution technologies; addressing technical issues power generators and regulators face in the integration of renewable energy technologies; or even providing full turnkey development or construction solutions. No matter the need, Black & Veatch’s renewable solutions can simplify the life of a customer with complex projects.
Battery Energy Storage (BESS)
The energy market’s evolving needs has created increased opportunity for the smart management of energy storage deployment. An informed strategy for deploying and managing stationary energy storage is now necessary for operating economically in today’s varied energy landscape.
Where water moves there’s energy that can be harvested. We offer single-source expertise and project life-cycle solutions. Our experience covers more than 500 projects and more than 64,000 megawatts in hydropower design worldwide.
Solar projects are quickly reaching parity with other forms of new generation. They also tie in seamlessly with various microgrid and distributed energy resource projects, which makes solar an attractive option for smart city initiatives.
Wind development activity remains strong globally. Full and Partial wind repowers enable owners to utilize existing infrastructure, expand MW output, extend the operating life of assets, and maximize return on investment with upgraded wind facilities. Offshore wind is underway in Europe and developing in other regions.
