Adapting to the Evolving Energy Landscape Through Public-Private Partnerships

Julian Gonsalves explains how public-private partnerships can provide government officials with solutions to meet reliability, resiliency and environmental targets.
Blog

Can public-private partnerships (P3s) help governments adapt to the evolving energy landscape?

 The energy landscape has been changing dramatically. Aggressive climate goals, impact of COVID-19 on government revenue and budgets, aging infrastructure, decreasing cost of energy, stakeholder pressure, need for resiliency, and innovative technical and market solutions are just a few of the factors driving this transformation. 

Solar Soil Vapor Extraction: Remediation from a Sustainable Angle

WSP USA implemented a solar-powered soil contamination cleaning system for rural oil and gas facilities that is revolutionizing approaches to standard remediation practices.
Blog

When contaminated soil is identified for removal from remote locations, traditional dig-and-haul remediation techniques can create logistical and costly difficulties for these off-the-grid sites, not to mention a variety of associated environmental impacts.

This challenge for the oil and gas industry inspired a non-traditional technique developed by WSP USA, that is emerging as a practical, environmentally beneficial alternative to dig-and-haul operations.

Overcoming Challenges to Mainstreaming Ecosystem Restoration

The United Nations Decade on Ecosystem Restoration initiative seeks to knock down barriers that could prevent restoration efforts from achieving full potential.
Blog

Note: This is the second article in a series on the United Nations Decade on Ecosystem Restoration. This article examines significant hurdles to the mass scaling up of ecosystem restoration as a mainstream means of fighting climate change.

Ecosystem restoration can play a direct role in successfully reducing the effects of climate change and offsetting carbon levels in the atmosphere, but several barriers stand in the way of these initiatives reaching their full ecological potential.

WSP USA Develops Air Monitoring Equipment for Oil and Gas Facilities

AirWatch System™ solar-powered air monitoring equipment and data technology is providing continuous air emissions monitoring of hazardous pollutants.
Blog

A small, unassuming enclosure is emerging as an essential environmental tool with innovative technology that improves the way oil and gas facilities keep their worksites safe and environmentally compliant.

The AirWatch System™ hydrocarbon monitor provides continuous emissions monitoring at oil and gas facilities for hazardous air pollutants, including volatile organic compounds and hydrocarbons (C5-C16). The system was first implemented at a Colorado facility in 2019.

A Perspective on a Future Ready City: San Antonio

WSP USA’s San Antonio office leader explores how the Texas city is becoming a model for forward-thinking, equitable approaches to modern infrastructure challenges.
Blog

The essence of being Future Ready™ is a commitment to forward thinking in a city’s approach to planning and implementing programs and projects. Solutions must satisfy today’s demands but be adaptable for tomorrow’s needs and serve multiple objectives.

Equally as important, for a city to be Future Ready it must have “historical awareness” and leadership that acknowledges past failures and adapts practices as needed to progress the community.

Advancing Meaningful Climate Action From TCFD Disclosures

Article

In response to the increasing impacts of climate change on businesses, both now and in the future, more companies have been publishing climate disclosures following TCFD recommendations to promote transparency, efficiency and resilience. To help assess and enhance the usefulness of disclosures, WSP conducted a study using 50 TCFD disclosures cutting through multiple sectors and geographies and developed a maturity framework to assess companies’ TCFD disclosures.
