Your Guide to Wind Generation

Improved economics and advanced technologies make wind generation an increasingly viable investment. But as more organizations rush to deploy projects, stakeholders are often pressured by the complexities of project delivery times, resource planning, transmission integration and financial management. That’s where Black & Veatch comes in.

With over 40 years of wind project development and implementation experience, Black & Veatch is your partner for any wind installation. Our industry-leading regulatory, technology and execution expertise enable us to help develop, install store, and connect renewable energy to the grid.

Core Competencies

Black & Veatch helped launch the modern wind power industry in 1975 with our first wind report for EPRI. Clients over the past 40 years have included utilities, project developers and governmental agencies. Our experienced professionals know the technology, the market and the legislation in this unique and fast-paced renewable energy field.

We are proud of our involvement in the first offshore wind project in the United States - Block Island, Rhode Island as a subcontractor to LS Cable (providing onshore cable design), and National Grid (providing substation design). By drawing from extensive experience across various types of offshore power projects, Black & Veatch is positioned to serve as a knowledgeable and trusted partner for offshore wind developers and utilities. We have supported the development of projects using both floating and bottom-fixed turbine designs as well as completed technical, financial and environmental front-end studies, due diligence and leasing support for projects in Europe and Asia.

Whether you're looking to reduce operation and maintenance costs, improve performance or extend the life of your assets, Black & Veatch has the expertise and experience to help you achieve your repower goals. With more than 1GW of full and partial repower experience as an owner's engineer, our professionals can assist from planning all the way through operation.

Battery energy storage will play a meaningful role in the future of wind generation with hybrid solutions helping to increase renewable energy production and efficiency. With over 10 years of experience working on utility scale energy storage projects we've accumulated expertise in technologies from lithium-ion and flow to long duration, flywheel, ultra-capacitor and thermal technologies. Additionally, we have experience designing both AC and DC-coupled storage solutions in order to improve efficiency and economics.

Black & Veatch has been consulting on marine energy since 1976 and worked on tidal energy since the early 1990s. We’ve worked on over 150 tidal and wave power projects helping investors, project and technology developers, utilities, and government agencies take potential projects from concepts to commercial reality. We support OEMs and project developers with studies, FEED and detailed design. We were the lead consultant on the Marine Energy Challenge (MEC, 2004-2006) and were also the lead technical consultant for Strand A (early stage technologies) of the Marine Energy Accelerator (MEA, 2007-2011), both for Carbon Trust. Between 2009 and 2012 we undertook most of the Technical Services Team work for the Marine Renewable Proving Fund (MRPF), through Carbon Trust on behalf of DECC, and authored the majority of the final report dealing with lessons learnt from this landmark project. We have more recently been engaged in providing similar technical services to DECC’s MEAD and Scottish Government’s MRCF schemes. This level of involvement on most significant UK projects in the past 15 years is unique and brings unrivalled understanding and insight into the complex issues facing the sector.

We work with many of the major utilities in the United States, and know their standards and preferences. This, combined with our experience with overhead and underground lines across all voltages, GIS, HVDC, and our self-perform or subcontract construction solutions, allows us to deliver a seamless renewable integration project.
