Next-Level Reliability Through Resilience

Reliable service always has been core to every utility’s mandate, but achieving this is becoming more complex in the face of aging infrastructure and increasingly frequent and intense extreme weather events.

A Story of Collaboration, Vision of Renewable Energy
Cardinal Point Wind
Meet Cardinal Point Wind, a sprawling wind farm that’s testament to the zero-carbon development vision of Canada-based Capital Power, the project’s owner. And it’s symbolic of the collaboration and trust between that wholesale power generator and Black & Veatch, a global renewable energy solutions leader that stepped up to the challenge of erecting the farm.
Is there a future for gas-fired generation in Southeast Asia?
Large gas-fired power plants have a future in Southeast Asia. As countries continue on their journey to full electrification and more sustainable operations, combined cycle facilities will play a critical role in stabilizing ever-more complex grids, complementing variable renewable energy assets and, in some cases, transitioning to hydrogen as a zero-emissions fuel source over the long term.
Managing Asia’s future grid

Asia’s energy transition is extensive and rapid. Google’s commitment to use excess renewable energy from rooftop solar panels of 500 public housing blocks to power its Singapore operations is a clear indication of the shift to sustainable development.

Designing Ammonia- Ready LNG Import Terminals
From Black & Veatch's recently release Hybrid LNG & Ammonia Infrastructure: Key to a Green Economy eBook, this section discusses how the LNG import facility can be designed to be ammonia-ready with minimum required modification.
World Leader in Banking & Finance Finds Value in Distributed Energy Resources
Nationwide Distributed Solar Deployment Program

Our client set goals to improve the reliability and resiliency of power supplied to their financial centers throughout the United States. This goal not only improves their business continuity, but also lowers the carbon footprint of these centers by utilizing telecom infrastructure, distributed EV charging, battery energy storage, solar PV, and other distributed energy assets to reduce their reliance on traditional power supplies.

Small Town Sees Big Opportunity from Distributed Generation and Battery Storage
Solar PV field in Panguitch, Utah
Black & Veatch provided engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for a battery energy storage and solar project composed of a 650kWac monocrystalline photovoltaic (PV) plant utilizing a horizontal  single-axis tracking system. The solar PV project utilizes 150 kW SMA string Inverters, which are tied to an owner-supplied 1 MVA step-up transformer.
Designing Ammonia-Ready LNG Storage Tanks
From Black & Veatch's recently release Hybrid LNG & Ammonia Infrastructure: Key to a Green Economy eBook, this section discusses the optimum design for ammonia-ready LNG storage tanks.
Converting LNG Storage Tanks to Ammonia Storage Tanks
From Black & Veatch's recently release Hybrid LNG & Ammonia Infrastructure: Key to a Green Economy eBook, this section discusses the optimum conversion of existing LNG storage tanks to ammonia storage tanks.
Part II, Roadmap to an Interconnected Grid Infrastructure
Today’s energy industry is undergoing a fundamental transformation. The ongoing shift towards decentralization is changing how we design, operate and maintain the electric grid, requiring new, technology-driven approaches that include integrating intelligence to the grid edge.
Part I, The Mechanics of Grid Edge Intelligence

Perhaps the one constant in today’s changing energy landscape is disruption. Distributed energy resources (DER) are accelerating us past the days of a single-direction, centralized electric grid and towards a bi-directional, distributed grid faster than any of us ever imagined.

2021 Megatrends SDR
Black & Veatch’s 2021 Strategic Directions: Megatrends Report analyzes survey data from more than 1,000 professionals across the power, water, telecommunications and natural gas sectors, and the commercial & industrial and manufacturing industries.
Challenges to Managing Distributed Energy Infrastructure (DEI)
Distributed energy infrastructure continues to grow at a fast pace in the United States. The forecasted capacity of electric vehicle charging, solar PV and energy storage infrastructure from 2016 through 2020 is 27GW. The installed capacity between 2021 and 2025 is expected to reach 52 GW.
