The energy transformation challenge

For centuries, we’ve relied on fossil fuels for power generation. Today, the realities of climate change are transforming the global energy mix, and our world. Tackling climate change will require a major shift to less carbon intensive forms of energy.

As new technologies are developed, and societies begin to implement systematic change, the necessary energy transformation is beginning to accelerate. We’re responding to this profound transformation by providing our clients with responsible energy solutions that will help us to achieve our low carbon future and shape a new energy landscape.

Whether it’s achieving net-zero emissions with carbon-free nuclear power and technologies; realizing energy self-reliance and power resilience with hybrid solutions; removing and sequestering CO2 from our atmosphere; transforming the electrical grid to accommodate new trends for generation and consumption; developing new sources for sustainable power generation and technologies for alternative fuels. We’re championing the shift to cleaner energy generation and helping our clients to shift to a more sustainable product mix.

We’re optimistic about the future. About reducing carbon emissions from oil and gas. About maximizing green technologies. About reducing CO2 emissions. About providing accessible and sustainable energy for all.

Our response

Energy management and planning

Optimizing energy assets responsibly begins with proper system planning. Through load forecasting, system modeling, business case evaluations, and resource planning, we partner with our clients to increase efficiency and improve reliability for the network. Our planning group understands the power system and how to apply technologies such as HVDC & FACTS. Our team is well versed in all system study tools, as well as global interconnection requirements, and can bring this experience to the success of your project.

Clean energy generation

As we transition to a low carbon world, strategic investments in clean energy generation are required. Whether it’s solar or wind combined with energy storage, hydroelectric, geothermal, or biomass, energy derived from renewable sources is critical for meeting baseload dispatchable electricity requirements sustainably. This shift will require modern electricity networks to transform the way we distribute more power, across further distances, between asynchronous systems all while maintaining a high-level of system security and reliability.

Carbon-free nuclear technology development

The next generation of reactor designs—like small modular reactors and fusion energy—are on the brink of commercialization and new markets are emerging. We’re partnering with clients to conceptualize, develop, license, and implement their carbon-free nuclear technology solutions

Hydrogen production

Hydrogen is gaining momentum as an alternate fuel source for transportation, heat, electricity generation, and industrial processes. Produced through various pathways, hydrogen—especially blue and green which are recognized for their low to zero carbon emissions —is a pillar that brings us one step closer to a green future.

Low-carbon thermal processes

As we seek to bridge the gap presented by renewable energy sources that are more intermittent in nature, low carbon solutions such as district and/or geothermal energy can have a role to play. It presents an opportunity to optimize your operation and reduce your overall carbon footprint by providing high efficiency heating and cooling. With energy conservation in mind, we’re developing energy recovery and optimization solutions that are cost-efficient and sustainable by reducing waste heat generated.

Hybrid power and energy storage

As we seek to achieve 100 percent renewable power penetration, a deliberate and calibrated approach is required. Our hybrid solution, supported by energy storage capabilities, maximizes renewable power when combined with baseload conventional power generation. This hybrid power solution achieves a reliable and resilient electricity supply with lower green gas emissions and a lower price of electricity.

Grid modernization

The impact of aging infrastructure, climate change, electrification, and the rise of prosumers are among the leading factors of uncertainty and risks that are driving the requirements of grid modernization and the grid’s digital transformation. We’re supporting utilities drive risk-based asset management and achieve optimal system reliability through automation, grid hardening, and by leveraging data collected from intelligent field devices.

Carbon capture, utilization, and storage

To transition from the carbon-intensive economy of today to a more sustainable future, industrial emitters are increasingly looking to carbon capture to decarbonize their processes. We’re designing and implementing a range of carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) technologies to best meet the needs of specific processes, while also providing transport and sequestration (or utilization) solutions best suited to the opportunities available at each client’s facility.

Unconventional syngas production

With growing global environmental consciousness and the emergence of the circular economy, the ambition to create fuel and chemical products from biomass and/or waste is becoming an imperative. By applying our gasification and syngas treatment expertise, we can devise options to monetize just about any feedstock.

Displacing coal with natural gas

From power generation to liquid transportation fuels and chemical, natural gas presents a significant opportunity to support the transition away from coal. It’s a high-energy value product with a low cost of supply. We’re working with gas-to-liquids (GTL) conversion technology developers, assisting Fischer-Tropsch (FT) and syngas generation licensors with proprietary technology development, as well as crafting various non-FT-based syngas conversion solutions to bridge the gap as we seek to displace coal and reduce carbon emissions
