Decentralised Energy Expertise
The global energy crisis has emphasised the fact that the world’s over-reliance on fossil fuels is unsustainable. Meanwhile countries that rely heavily on fossil fuel imports are also at the mercy of rising market prices, as well as global events such as the war in Ukraine.
Reducing use, improving efficiency and getting greater energy output from resources, including fossil fuel use during the transition away, is a key driver in moving towards a more sustainable future.
And energy insecurity comes at a massive social and economic cost; 50 million people were affected by a blackout in the US and Canada in 2003, which cost an estimated $6.4 billion.
Part of the solution is decentralised energy technologies — an area in which our client Clarke Energy plays a leading role.
Decentralised energy is usually generated off-grid, and can include micro-renewables such as solar or wind power, heating and cooling, energy from waste plants, geothermal, biomass, or combined heat and power. Schemes can serve a single home, business premises, a whole community or even an entire city.
Some of Clarke Energy’s recent successes include the University of Liverpool’s Combined Heat and Power Energy Centre, which has helped the institution reduce its gas demand, lower emissions and save money on bills.
The company has also boosted New Zealand’s green energy by supplying Auckland-based waste management company EnviroWaste with biogas engines.
Clarke Energy also recently announced its involvement in a A$220 million project to capture and geologically store 1.7 million tonnes of CO2 per year in South Australia.
When it comes to power generation projects like Clarke Energy’s, we’re on hand to assist with bespoke noise control solutions — a vital part of the infrastructure, no matter what the source technology is. Please contact our team for advice relating to your new project.
