As the country moves to renewable energy technology, STEVENS is proud to provide our comprehensive 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.
That's the expertise and experience 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?
- Battery storage is essential. Wind and solar power are great, but if you can't store it, you can't use it. Battery storage ensures 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.
Our pre-engineered metal buildings are an effective solution for minimizing waste during construction. By utilizing sustainable materials like scrap metals used to produce steel, we can reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfills. This also results in less usage of concrete and wood and a lower demand for water.
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.
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. 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 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 additional 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 solar farm, also known as a photovoltaic power station, is a vast space equipped with solar panels that convert solar energy into electricity. These farms play a significant role in reducing the dependency on electricity produced by fossil fuels. We have significant experience constructing and maintaining renewable energy projects like solar farms, that support the progress of the United States.
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. However, 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. 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. 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.
Reliable energy storage is crucial for making renewable energy sources more accessible. Battery storage systems can be charged using clean energy from sources such as wind or solar power.
At STEVENS, our goal is to be the energy storage contractor that leads the way in bringing renewable energy to businesses and homes to help reduce the use of non-renewable fuel sources. Keep reading to see why choosing us as your renewable energy construction company is the best choice.
The construction industry is making great leaps toward greener technologies, but if we want to push these renewable energy sources to be commonly used by energy providers, the work has to start now. With decades of combined experience serving clients of all types and sizes, our crews have the knowledge and skills needed to help with the demands of renewable energy construction projects.
If you're looking for a construction company to help with renewable energy sources like solar power, wind turbines, and even hydrogen modular plants, STEVENS is your best choice. Choose an experienced construction company in the renewable energy industry, and get started on your project today!
