Energy Transition Technologies of Focus and Permeating Broad Industry Sectors

Technologies

Hydrogen

Low-carbon hydrogen represents a highly promising technology with broad industry applicability. Hydrogen can be derived from low-carbon or renewable sources. It can then be stored and transported domestically or internationally through a range of methods, and used for transport, power, heat, or industrial processes.

Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage

CCUS relies on the separation, capture and permanent sequestration or re-use of CO2 from combustion or chemical processes or from direct air capture. CCUS has been successfully employed for decades with many new use cases and technologies for CO2 advancing and maturing.

Energy Storage

Energy storage is a critical link toward the decarbonization of power grids. Energy storage enables intermittent renewable generation from sources such as wind and solar to be stored and later released to better match power market loads. There are a variety of storage technologies available including battery cells of various chemistries, pumped hydro storage, and other short-term and long-duration technologies.

Renewable Fuels

Renewable fuels, sometimes known as biofuels, encompass a range of products derived from a gamut of plant-based or waste feedstocks. Renewable fuels can either replace or be blended with carbon-based fuels such as diesel, jet fuel, gasoline and natural gas in combustion applications.

E-Mobility

E-Mobility involves the displacement of carbon-based transportation propulsion with zero-emission propulsion. Different transportation methods will have different e-mobility solutions. Battery-power, hydrogen and low-carbon fuels are in a leadership position to transform our passenger vehicle, rail, heavy-duty transport, and marine systems. Infrastructure for fueling, charging and recycling are critical to e-mobility’s success.

Carbon Markets

Revenue streams from carbon attributes are important contributors to the economic success for many energy transition projects. Voluntary and compliance carbon markets provide a venue for verified carbon attributes to be transacted with a growing buyer base in support of their net zero ambitions.

Contact Team

Distributed Energy Resources

Businesses and homeowners are increasingly connecting rooftop solar, battery storage and other distributed power resources, decentralizing grid power sources that were once exclusively large scale and highly concentrated. Distributed Energy Resources are largely rooted in rooftop solar PV, microgrids, and demand response with more distributed technologies gaining share.

Electric Grid

As more and more industries, vehicles and other processes switch to electricity, and with the continued addition of intermittent, distributed generation and storage, electricity grids will require more infrastructure investment and modernization to adapt in real-time and handle the increased and complex demands put on these systems.

Renewable Power

Renewables such as solar, wind, hydro, geothermal and other technologies are critical to achieving a net zero grid and to Scope 2 emission reduction pledges by emitters.
