Clean Energy Technologies
Safe and effective implementation
of clean energy technologies
Clean energy technologies are at the heart of the energy transition, producing electricity, heat, or transportation fuels using renewable resources that are naturally replenished. All new projects, as well as existing assets, must be managed thoughtfully to ensure their safe and effective implementation.
Each clean energy technology poses its own unique risks and challenges that must be overcome to make the energy transition a reality. The technologies include:
- Offshore and onshore wind farms
- Wave and tidal power systems
- Hydroelectric and pumped hydro schemes
- Solar farms
- Bioenergy facilities
- Geothermal assets
- Hydrogen and ammonia systems
- Energy storage systems
Energy delivery is one of the key challenges of the energy transition – getting clean energy from where it is produced to where it is needed, safely.
It includes the construction and operation of transmission and distribution systems, as well as the development of new technologies to store, convert and manage clean energy, and encompasses:
- Renewable heat
- Energy vectors
- Transmission and distribution
The clean energy technologies and energy delivery systems ultimately provide heating, cooling, power and transportation for society, industry, and business. Risks to people, plant and the planet must be effectively managed throughout this whole supply chain.
