Explore our ‘themes for the future’ covering topics we believe central to realising our vision, within sustainability, climate adaptation and electrification.
At DNV GL, we use our industry-leading advisory expertise to help offshore wind projects increase performance. We believe success relies on understanding the dependencies between different parts of the offshore wind value chain – this is why we take a full lifecycle approach to managing risks and reducing costs. Together with our partners in the industry, we focus on doing it right, doing it better and doing it differently.
Unveiling the True Power of Energy Storage
Reliable electricity supply is under threat because of resource constraint, with the depletion of fossil fuel reserves and the transient nature of renewable energy sources. Large-scale storage systems could be designed and weaved into the electrical infrastructure to increase power supply robustness. Prudent energy storage deployment could mitigate outages, shave network peaks, reduce congestion, provide network support in remote areas or even hold off the need to spend on network expansion. Distributed storage systems allows for clean and better power match to usage needs in the context of variable renewable power generation through photovoltaics (PV) and wind.
The combined application of solar generation and energy storage can provide multiple benefits to many system stakeholders and is growing at a rapid rate.
As technologies converge into coordinated applications, DNV GL is uniquely qualified to assist in all areas of combined solar and storage applications. We draw upon highly recognized expertise in solar, storage, research & innovation, and testing capabilities to provide the only complete suite of independent service offerings to clients for these applications.
Future electrical energy needs requires serious investment in grid transformation. The increased share and penetration of variable renewables is the primary driver of the need for change but with so many stakeholders, often with conflicting needs, the challenge is complex.
Smart green cities
As renewables penetration grows, smaller generation technologies continue to reduce in cost and smaller storage technologies mature, there is an opportunity for cities to reap the social and environmental benefits that a distributed energy model can offer them, while also meeting their climate change objectives and becoming more resilient.
