Finding the Right Power Generation Mix As ratepayers continue to seek more renewable energy integration, the electric industry is struggling to create the optimal mix of fuels that will economically meet sustainability goals. Boosted by a slew of factors – including decreasing costs, advancing technologies, new carbon-reduction policies, consumer pressure and regulatory support – renewables show no sign of slowing down. But their ability to provide reliable, consistent baseload power remains firmly in doubt because of the inherent intermittency of wind and solar photovoltaic. When Water is the Product, How Do We Afford Sustainability? Regardless of industry or product, the effective use of water carries huge weight for plant operators and other decision-makers who must pit emerging social calls for sustainability against the money on hand to make it happen. Global Renewables: From Utah to the United Nations, Renewables Power Up From C-suites and state capitals to international governments and the United Nations, leaders of the world’s most influential economies are codifying the role of renewables in an increasingly sustainable power generation mix. On the government side, leaders in China, Europe and elsewhere are on a growing list of American states in setting ambitious renewable portfolio standards (RPS) targets. Renewables Surge, Changing Policies Expected to Drive Investment in Transmission Surging growth in renewables and efforts to increase resilience will drive millions of dollars in new transmission investment over the next five years, according to Black & Veatch’s 2019 Strategic Directions: Electric Report survey. Survey results found that 37 percent of respondents see renewables as the top driver in new investment, followed by resilience and reliability (28 percent). Collaborate with our Sustainability team.
