Services Solar Photovoltaic and Solar Thermal Energy As solar photovoltaic (PV) becomes the fastest growing form of energy generation on the globe, the capital cost associated continues to decrease. Solar projects are quickly reaching parity with other forms of new generation. They also tie in seamlessly with various Microgrid and distributed energy resource (DER) projects, which makes solar an attractive option for “Smart City” initiatives. With deep industry leadership in project development, independent engineering and bankability, construction only and complete solar engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC), we can provide planning and execution of rooftop and distributed solar projects, as well as management of distributed solar on the grid and in communities. We’re also a leader in concentrating solar thermal technologies. Wind Energy How can you be sure that your site is ideal for wind energy? Wind Resource Assessments analyze all factors associated with your project site, weighing the environmental data to make your wind development project more bankable and drive certainty in your future revenue stream. As regulations and incentives change over the course of time, and facilities need repowering or replacement, a highly experienced partner can guide the process toward optimized output and revenue. Understanding the market, various regulatory program changes, and geographic considerations is critical to a successful project. Black & Veatch can assist with site selection, environmental permitting, financial due diligence for owners and financiers, and transmission and interconnection support.

Photo Gallery 0 Related Insights From Drones to Senders: Innovation Gaining Sway Among Electric Utility Leaders With their infrastructure graying and renewable energy posing growing threats to their customer bases and bottom lines, electric utilities are awakening to the power afforded by dynamic advances in construction, from the deployment of drones to innovative construction practices. Amid the prospect of a continued shift to decentralized, digital grids and the broadening appeal of increasingly affordable solar power systems, electricity suppliers no longer have the luxury of resisting change or delaying the adoption of next-generation power delivery. Old Capital Allocation Strategies Require New Thinking The electric utility industry is in the middle of a transformation that has no precedent. Historically speaking, delivering electricity was relatively simple; utilities generated power and provided it to customers over a one-way delivery system. Companies requested, and utility regulators granted, periodic rate hikes to cover infrastructure upgrades while providing a reasonable rate of return on that investment. Transforming Southeast Asia's Energy Sector: Opportunities and Challenges Nations in Southeast Asia are working to balance energy security, environmental sustainability and economic competitiveness at a time when the financial sector is looking for bankable energy projects in which to invest. The region’s industrial growth in recent years has encouraged economic growth and urbanization that has expedited its consumption of energy. Catalyst for Clean Energy In this year’s 2019 Strategic Directions: Natural Gas Report, we explore the sector’s weightiest topics and offer insights driven by survey input from hundreds in the industry and our decades of experience serving the natural gas marketplace. The New Power Grid: Obligations In The Era of Change To effectively map out the current and future states of power delivery, it’s imperative to discuss what the landscape looked like in the past. Understanding the evolution of any industry typically requires a healthy dose of historical context, and making sense of today’s energy grid is no exception.
