As the country moves to renewable energy technology, STEVENS is proud to provide our extensive construction services in the Renewable Energy Construction Industry.
We have merged our outstanding technical, engineering, construction, and management expertise to better enable our clients, large and small, to overcome their most challenging project obstacles, and that's what we're bringing to renewable energy development (RED) projects.
There is a heavy reliance on fossil fuels, such as coal and natural gas, to power vehicles and heat homes. If there is going to be a decrease in carbon footprints across the nation, the need for renewable energy projects is essential.
- The Renewable Energy Industry is growing as companies are turning to alternative sources to power their businesses.
- What's the future of renewable energy? How are solutions like solar power, wind energy, hydrogen, hydroelectric, and battery storage shaping the future of the energy and power industry?
- Why is battery storage important? Wind and solar power are great, but if you can't store it, you can't use it. Battery storage helps make sure that the energy produced through alternative energy sources can be used.
- Make renewable energy the present, not the future. In order to lessen carbon emissions and bring renewable energy to the forefront, the work has to start now. STEVENS Engineers & Constructors has the expertise and knowledge to make sure these clean energy projects are done on schedule.
One of the ways to reduce the amount of waste generated during construction is with our pre-engineered metal buildings. This helps reduce the waste that ends up in a landfill. This reduces the use of concrete and wood, uses less water, and utilizes sustainable materials, such as the scrap metals used to produce steel.
But we want to take it a step further.
For example, hydroelectric energy and solar projects that can generate electricity, wind turbines that can produce electricity and heating, hydrogen fuel cells that can power cars, and even hydrogen-powered construction equipment, are all renewable sources.
Let's look at how our renewable energy contractors support the renewable energy industry.
The future of energy is renewables. As the world continues to move away from non-renewable energy forms, it is more important to push the envelope of green energy advancements forward.
However, it won't happen overnight. The move away from some of the major energy sources that are being used today will take a lot of work. And that's why construction companies like us are critical for this clean energy transition and the use of fossil fuel alternatives for the entire energy industry.
We are working to be a leader in the renewable energy industry.
Our focus is on projects that include wind, like offshore wind farms, solar farms, hydrogen, fuel cells, and battery storage. We are committed to developing renewable energy construction projects ourselves and partnering with other developers in the renewable energy industry.
Let's look at some of the renewable energy projects we can help you create.
In 2016, global installed capacity reached 278 gigawatts (GW), up from about 50 GW in 2000.
In 2020 the United States offshore wind energy pipeline increased by 24%. The growth of wind energy is rapid as turbines get bigger and projects continue to be developed.
Wind energy is the most economical choice when compared to other energy systems. Out of coal, natural gas, nuclear, hydroelectricity, solar photovoltaics, and biomass, wind energy is the cheapest form of energy.
There are many benefits associated with wind energy, including:
• Lowering greenhouse gas emissions
• Reducing dependence on foreign oil imports
Our subsidiary, CDMG, has considerable experience in this industry with its involvement in the Port of Albany offshore wind turbine manufacturing facility. Another part of our company, Chemsteel, has installed foundations for a large wind farm renewable energy construction project in West Virginia.
A photovoltaic power station, also known as a solar farm, is a large area with solar panels that turn the sun's energy into electricity. Solar farms can help decrease the use of electricity from fossil fuel sources.
We have experience in constructing and servicing renewable energy projects like solar farms that help America move forward.
Fuel cells are an emerging option in the energy market. They use electricity to split water into oxygen and hydrogen gas, which are used to produce energy. This process produces no emissions and is clean, efficient, and sustainable. But there are some challenges to overcome before fuel cell technology can become mainstream.
Hydrogen needs to be produced efficiently and safely, stored securely, transported easily, and consumed reliably. And it must be affordable, durable, and easy to maintain.
The hydrogen power systems are designed for mobility and scalability. They are compact, lightweight, modular, and flexible. They can be installed quickly and efficiently and can be scaled up and down depending on site requirements.
And while the production of solar, wind, and hydrogen has been the focus of reducing carbon emissions, one of the most overlooked aspects of clean energy is storage.
One of the often forgotten or overlooked aspects of alternative energy sources is battery storage. Solar-powered machines and clean energy generation is useless if you don't have a way to store the energy they produce.
Having reliable energy storage can help these renewable forms of energy be available for use. These battery storage energy systems can be charged by the electricity from a clean energy source like wind power or solar panels.
At STEVENS, our goal is to be the energy storage contractor that is leading the way in bringing renewable energy to businesses and homes to help reduce the use of non-renewable fuel sources.
