End users of electricity have more options than ever as renewable and distributed energy resources (DER), including microgrids, solar, wind, and battery storage, become more accessible and competitively priced for homeowners and businesses alike. As the power grid and critical infrastructure become ever-more technologically advanced, we’re helping our clients address changing customer demands, comply with regulatory requirements, maximize revenues and establish themselves as preferred energy partners.
To maintain resiliency and security-physical and cyber-clients are challenged with becoming the agile market operators who will balance cost, technology, regulation and sustainability. It’s complicated, but solutions are readily available. Black & Veatch works alongside clients to craft constructive, data-driven strategies for asset management and capital allocation. We’re enabling profitable investments in generation, storage, transmission and distribution of safe, reliable electric power.
We are a global solutions provider with highly skilled professionals who deliver planning, consulting, engineering, construction, program management and combined engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) solutions to meet our clients’ rapidly changing infrastructure needs. Our service offerings include conventional, renewable, and distributed power generation, transmission and distribution, microgrids, and behind-the-meter services.
The cost of renewable technologies continues to decline. Natural gas prices are low and have been relatively stable for nearly a decade. At the same time, government, industrial, commercial and residential customers are demanding greater access and use of clean energy technologies, lower energy costs and enhanced energy security at the distribution level and behind the meter.
Black & Veatch brings significant programmatic experience across all technologies and fuel sources to deliver sustainable and resilient distributed generation solutions.
Utilities seek answers and direction based on fact and insight. Black & Veatch helps plan, build and operate new plants. We guide clients through decisions to refurbish, retrofit or retire a facility. We make an efficient and compliant operation possible through smooth project delivery.
Black & Veatch Industrial and Institutional Services provide clients with global experience and local resources to create innovative solutions for their energy, water, industrial process, operations & maintenance, and sustainability needs. As a leading global engineering, consulting and construction provider, we work closely with clients to deliver solutions regardless of project size or location.
Utilities, communities, and energy consumers are actively investigating microgrids as a solution for reaching sustainability, resiliency, and cost-certainty objectives. Microgrids support greater levels of intermittent renewable resource integration, and enhance energy security for mission-critical facilities and operations.
Our professionals design and build ways to enhance security and extend the life of nuclear power plants. We also participate in the deployment of Generation III and the development of Generation IV nuclear power technologies.
Our nuclear power teams provide planning, engineering and construction services. They guide clients in selecting the right technology, moving forward with regulatory approvals, and ensuring safe, reliable, and timely project completion.
Power delivery challenges are consistently growing in complexity. A variety of forces are driving the need for overhead and underground transmission lines to efficiently move electricity.
We collaboratively meet our clients’ cost, schedule and performance expectations through proven planning, design and construction services for transmission projects of all sizes and voltages. We coordinate with our clients to avoid environmental impacts where possible and meet regulatory requirements. We also are on the leading edge of technologies such as underground transmission design.
Black & Veatch provides complete services, from concept through construction and operations, for all types of utility-scale power generation assets. We help clients plan, build, and operate new plants and evaluate options to refurbish, repower, retrofit, or retire existing facilities. We also provide comprehensive environmental services so your facilities can meet current and future regulations.
A modern grid requires modern solutions and technologies. To build the grid of the future, clients must make efficient use of their existing facilities, adapt to ever-changing generation sources, and be able to integrate greater amounts of intermittent renewable resources, all without sacrificing reliability.
Black & Veatch is a full-service engineering provider with in-house procurement and construction capabilities. We also provide expertise in substation siting, transmission line-routing, all types of permitting, and all environmental areas.
Wind development activity remains strong globally. Improved economics and advanced technology support project viability and continued wind investment.
Full and Partial wind repowers enable owners to utilize existing infrastructure, expand megawatt (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.
