Establishing renewable and clean energy
Renewable and clean energy comes from diverse sources, including off and onshore wind, solar, tidal and hydrogen. Together, renewables account for more than a quarter of global electricity generation, while investment in hydrogen technologies is increasing. To realise the transition to a low carbon, more sustainable world, overall renewable and clean energy capacity needs to grow, and to do that it needs to demonstrate its production costs can compete with those of fossil and nuclear energy.
While knowledge and best practice from the conventional power sector can effectively be transferred to the renewables sector, its projects and programmes present their own distinct challenges. These new generation power plants can be complex, incorporating smart infrastructure and battery storage.
Investors, owners and operators need to consider such factors as the continued development of new and enhanced technologies, ongoing financial investment required, available government support and team capabilities. A dependable and capable supply chain is key to the successful roll-out of programmes.
Carbon capture, utilisation and storage is an increasing part of the overall energy picture, allowing the capture of carbon dioxide emissions from industrial processes for storage or reuse in building materials.
