Future growth hinges on the appropriate response to present conditions while strategically developing longer-term plans. For most industries, social, environmental, and political issues are having increasingly greater impact in reshaping the present and future business environment. In particular, the oil and gas (O&G) industry is challenged to reliably and economically deliver transportation fuels in the present day while working strategically to provide “cleaner” energy products in the future.
A dramatic ‘Energy Revolution’ is currently underway, both in the UK and around the world. This involves a shift away from polluting, fossil fuel-intensive power generation and towards embracing renewable technologies. This revolution will fundamentally change everything from how we power our vehicles to how we heat our homes over the coming decades. It also has far-reaching implications for infrastructure funding, which will also, ultimately, create investment opportunities.
Seeing is often believing when it comes to addressing the impacts of climate change. As the effects of global warming become more noticeable, scientists tell us, public opinion has been shifting toward the importance of addressing climate change. While graphs and statistics make for good discussions, it’s often the “eyeball impact” that drives home the point that the earth’s atmosphere is being altered by the amount of carbon emissions we release.
Designing and constructing a two megawatt solar photovoltaic array for solar electricity generation at Dugway Proving Ground, Utah
ECN Magazine highlighted the 2 megawatt, 24-acre solar photovoltaic array that is being constructed at the Dugway Proving Ground (DPG) site in Dugway, Utah. This new system will allow DPG’s existing electrical grid to produce 4 million kilowatt-hours of energy per year. Tetra Tech and joint venture partner TriEco are serving as the prime contractor for the design and build of the array.
