AECOM Process Technologies supports the phased reduction in carbon dioxide emissions and is helping the power sector transition to “zero-carbon” generation.
Replacing fossil fuels with renewable energy as our main source of power isn’t as simple as flipping a light switch. In addition to investing in the infrastructure necessary for the reliable supply of renewable energy, an important step towards a low-carbon future is to decrease the carbon intensity of existing power generation facilities.
AECOM Process Technologies supports technology providers and utilities with a range of services:
- Supporting the development and implementation of long-duration energy storage, with a focus on non-battery technologies
- Reducing the carbon footprint of coal through efficiency improvements, use of less carbon-intensive feedstocks, and supporting the transition to natural gas or biomass
- Improving the reliable operation of combined-cycle gas turbines (CCGT) to serve as a bridge fuel as the power sector shifts away from coal
