Decarbonizing EMEA: Green Hydrogen Pathways
Green hydrogen is created when renewable energy is used to power hydrogen production. Green hydrogen can be used as zero-carbon fuel, feedstock and energy carrier, and as a method of energy storage; thus it has a potentially profound role in the drive to net zero.
Making the Case for Utility Private LTE Networks
Private LTE (PLTE) is quickly becoming the leading network solution for the grid edge.  With high-bandwidth, low-latency performance, PLTE is the leading technology to take on grid modernization and the surge of data from utility applications. 
The American Rescue Plan, the Infrastructure Act and You: What’s Your Plan?
Having done more with less for so long, the water and wastewater industry finally is getting a needed injection of aid. The hundreds of billions of dollars destined for cities and counties under the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA) and the trillion-dollar Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) offer a once-in-a-generation opportunity for state and local governments to invest in long-delayed water, wastewater and stormwater projects.
As U.S. Water Sector Evolves, Embracing Technology, Sustainability is Paramount
A decade later, many of those takeaways remain. Black & Veatch’s 2022 Water Report — based on expert analyses of a survey of more than 300 stakeholders in America’s water, wastewater and stormwater sectors — magnifies how so many things have grown more complex.

A Decade Later: Water Sector Doing More with Less
A decade since Black & Veatch first launched its annual “water report” in 2012, some of the industry’s biggest challenges linger: The sector still grapples with fading infrastructure, an aging workforce and financial obstacles. Yet the march of time has brought to light new opportunities that appeared to draw little notice a decade ago. The ascension and promise of data in driving decisions for those proactively deploying such “smart water” solutions continue to grab mindshare, and utilities are addressing the surging, pressing need for robust defenses against cyberattacks.
Climate Adaptation Strategies Gaining Momentum Among Water Utilities
Climate change has been labeled as an existential threat, with critical human infrastructure under siege from more frequent and intense weather-related storms, flooding, droughts and wildfires. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) warns that water infrastructure may be vulnerable to sea level rise, saltwater intrusion and greater pollutant runoff, eroding confidence in system resilience at a time when asset hardening should be top of mind.
ACT Expo 2022 - Three Takeaways for Commercial Fleets
The Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo is the largest advanced transportation technology and clean fleet conference in North America. The 2022 event was exceptional in many ways. Read about the latest trends in alternative fuel, zero-emission vehicle infrastructure and more from ACT Expo 2022.
Water Reuse Technologies Key to Communities’ Sustainability and Prosperity
Water reuse and desalination can be key technologies supporting the growth, resilience and sustainability of communities for generations to come. But while they are often considered after water scarcity issues become prevalent, the potential of reuse and desalination to serve as preventative tools protecting groundwater and other water supplies is substantial.
Why VPR could be right for your project, right now
The grid of the future will require digitalization to deliver higher performance, increased flexibility and integrate a new generation mix. Virtual Protective Relays (VPR) are an important step in this process, but widespread integration seems far off. If you have an EPC Renewables Integration project, learn how VPR could be the right option for your project right now.
Cultivating Company Cultures of Sustainability
It has been more than 50 years since Senator Gaylord Nelson organized the first Earth Day in 1970, when 20 million Americans — 10 percent of the total United States population at the time—took to the streets to voice concerns over the growing impacts of industrial development and environmental degradation.
Thinking in Parallel: Sustainability and Resilience
Sustainability, once a trendy buzzword, has evolved to become a core tenet of companies’ business practices. According to the nonprofit CDP, more than 9,600 global companies currently disclose their environmental goals and performance.
Strategizing to Meet Decarbonization Goals
The year 2021 was momentous all around, from cultural shifts and a working revolution to massive government investments in infrastructure and a stronger-than-ever push to fight climate change. For many of our private and government clients, this meant taking their sustainability and decarbonization efforts to new heights.
Planning Electric Vehicle Charging Networks? Remember these Five Points on Power
In an effort to slash tailpipe emissions, state transportation departments (DOTs) are working hard to accelerate electrification of travel and transport through policy, investment, and incentives. To support build-out of electric vehicle (EV) charging networks, the U.S. needs more charging stations and adequate electrical power in the “right” locations.
Ten Steps to Create a Successful Decarbonization Strategy
Anyone looking to decarbonize – no matter it’s a company or a nation – should start by taking stock of where they are currently, and where they want to be. Once the starting point and finish line have been identified, then the entity can best decide how to get from one to the other.
