Key Value Drivers for Grid-Scale Merchant Storage Whitepaper
Energy storage is critical to transitioning the grid to a low-carbon future while maintaining reliability and controlling energy costs. In 2021, grid-scale battery storage arrived in full force when cumulative Battery Energy Storage System/Project (“BES Project” or “BESS”) installed capacity doubled from the year prior. Similar market growth is expected to continue.
The Future of Renewable Power Production Whitepaper
Between climate change and Covid-19, recent years have weighed heavy on all market sectors, and the clean energy industry is no exception. Though general desire for renewable development is stronger than ever, the clean energy market struggles against growing challenges. This whitepaper brings together a group of experts in the renewable energy field to discuss solutions and explore potential for the years ahead. 
Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act: Accessing Grid Resiliency Funding
The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), includes, among other targeted programs, $65 billion in funding for energy related programs to support investment in electric grid resiliency. Utilities and independent developers of power transmission projects will be able to access significant funding streams by proactively evaluating and positioning existing and greenfield projects to maximize effective use of IIJA funding across nine grid investment programs.
Integrating Production and Sustainability: How Food & Beverage Companies Can Achieve Net-Zero
Most food and beverage companies want to improve their sustainability footprint, but also want to see accompanying improvements in their operations and bottom line, according to a study conducted by BNP Media’s Clear Seas Research for Black & Veatch. This white paper outlines the study findings, including how organizations define sustainability, and how they can identify and implement the optimal mix of technologies, low carbon fuels and advanced process and recovery streams to meet holistic sustainability goals.
The Cost of Cybersecurity and Policy Implication White Paper
In January 2020, to combat the rise in cybersecurity incidences, the United States Department of Defense (DoD) issued initial guidelines for Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC).” It is a series of processes and practices that serve as a cybersecurity framework for those in the Defense Industrial Base (DIB). Although the CMMC framework builds upon NIST SP 800-171, the CMMC framework has additional requirements and cannot be achieved through self certification (must be certified by a C3PAO). The deadline for compliance is approaching and the implication and cost associated with non-compliance is real.
Retiring or Repurposing Asia’s Coal Plants: Why Owners Must Plan and Act Now
Governments and utility operators across Asia are challenged with balancing pressures to decarbonize while continuing to meet growing electricity demand with affordable power. Owners must begin planning now for retirement, repurposing with affordable and alternative generation, or further diversification of their business portfolios.
How do you know if your assets are vulnerable to an event?

As a leader, do you know if your asset is trending toward an event? It is important for today’s leadership to establish and reinforce a robust safety culture with focused operational & maintenance performance standards to lessen the potential for events.

Microgrids for Water Utilities White Paper

Energy is one of the most significant operating costs for a water or wastewater utility. Microgrid implementation at certain water or wastewater utility sites can produce sustainable energy management options and cost reduction benefits.

Floating Blue Ammonia Production: Creating a Zero-Carbon Emission Fuel
Decarbonization efforts are gathering momentum across governments, big business and financial institutions. China, Japan and Korea – the three biggest importers of liquified natural gas (LNG) – have all announced national pledges to go carbon neutral no later than 2050 to 2060. The impetus has spread to the business world as well, with many of the world’s largest and most influential corporations leading the charge to set ambitious net-zero targets, setting in motion decarbonization drives throughout their supply chains.
Powering Data Centers with Natural Gas
As the Data Center industry increases its focus on sustainability, natural gas offers a clean, accessible and reliable alternative to diesel generators for their energy-intensive operations. This report explores the considerations and benefits of using natural gas generators for backup power to help you decide if this green technology is right for your Data Center.

Delivering Financial and Operational Resilience With a Holistic Stormwater Management Framework
When it comes to stormwater management, many competing forces, such as regulatory permit compliance, stormwater drainage infrastructure management, flooding mitigation, community needs, green infrastructure and environmental stewardship, pose challenges for utilities. The confluence of these challenges exerts pressure not only on funding capacity, but also on a city or municipality’s strategic mission, program planning, policies and overall organizational capacity.
Extracting Untapped Value from Your AMI System
Recognizing the benefits afforded by advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) technology and the data it generates, electric utilities have been increasingly implementing AMI systems throughout the grid as they work to transform and enhance utility operations and customer service. But as the pace of AMI innovation accelerates, utilities are faced with new challenges regarding how to expand their ability to leverage new AMI investments. Historically, utilities would install a new AMR or early generation AMI system, operate it for 15 years, and then replace it in a wholesale manner. But today, we’re seeing some utilities replace this approach with a “continuous investment” paradigm. As a result, wholesale replacement is no longer the only path to consider and often.

We seek partners in innovation. Let's start the conversation.
