Renewable Energy

Renewable Energy is a rapidly expanding sector due to the huge encouragement by global world leaders to reduce the CO2 emissions and produce long term solutions to help make the world a sustainable planet.

Securing the future for generations to come, sustainable power is crucial for our survival to utilise energy from natural sources. There are 3 key sources: Water, Solar & Wind - if engineered correctly they can bring vital power to our world with minimal environmental impact.

Solar uses the suns energy though photovoltaic cells in which to generate electricity, wind powers turbines which build kinetic energy transferring into power.

Renewable Energy

Hydropower is an attractive form of renewable energy channelling the globe’s water flow as it can provide large quantities of electricity without the requirement for expensive fuel. Therefore, hydropower projects are being developed worldwide to support local communities and the effects of climate change.

The current potential for hydropower development and construction is around 70% of the world’s current water resources, harnessing this potential is the true challenge that encompasses the exciting environment of hydropower engineering.

The transition from Thermal to Renewable Energy has taken huge strides over recent decades. Harnessing power from the natural world and the fruits of mother nature has never been greater and this will continue in our efforts to fight climate change and build a better world.

Electricity is generated from a wide range of fuel sources, including fossil fuels (oil, natural gas & coal), mineral fuels (uranium) or renewable sources (solar, wind, hydro, tidal, biomass & geothermal). Coal, oil and natural gas (conventional thermal) fired generation accounts for more than 60% of all electricity production worldwide.

Coal and gas are continuing to play a significant role in the global electricity generation while the power industry is trying to find ways of reducing the CO2 footprint through improvement of fuel efficiencies, new technologies, proving of CO2 capture and sequestration, in parallel with continuing to increase the penetration of renewable technologies such as Wind and Solar.
