Requirements for a low carbon footprint, an increasingly complex energy system and fast technological developments characterise the reality that the energy sector is facing today and tomorrow. Authorities, cities, industry and energy producers and providers are all on a path to decarbonisation and a smart energy system.
Queens Quay’s £15m energy system based on water-sourced district heating has now become operational and is ready to heat up the area of the former John Brown shipyard in Clydebank. The new energy system will cut West Dunbartonshire’s CO2 emissions with more than 4,000 tonnes each year for the next 40 years and will make Clydebank one of the greenest towns in Scotland.
A pilot-test of Ramboll’s True Digital Twin technology at the Wikinger offshore wind farm has revealed a significant analytical potential to increase lifetime of offshore wind. The pilot-test is part of the ROMEO project, an initiative funded by the EU research programme Horizon 2020 that aims at advancing the energy transition in Europe and reduce the costs of offshore wind energy.
Edinburgh-headquartered independent energy company InterGen has been granted consent for the UK’s largest battery energy storage project. The project is more than ten times the size of the UK’s largest operational battery project and is set to be one of the world’s largest. It will provide fast-reacting power and system balancing to support the ongoing growth and integration of renewable energy sources and is a significant piece of system architecture critical to the UK’s transition to Net Zero.
The energy sector is shifting from a system based on fossil fuels to one exploiting renewable energy. As sustainable society consultants, we help our clients think, design and implement their green transition based on an understanding of the interaction between the different sectors and technologies and in-depth technical insight into each of the elements of the integrated energy system.Read about our approach and solutions
A sustainable energy system is based on green energy. The green transition requires us to think across the various elements of the energy system and link the system to other sectors.Our take on the smart energy system
To optimise the design of wind foundations and turbines, engineers need a platform for fast, robust and cloud-based data storage and execution. Ramboll has teamed up with Google Cloud to improve its in-house wind software in this area.
Once again, Ramboll has secured one of the top spots as the most attractive employer among engineering students in 2018. The survey is conducted by Universum and based on the preferences of over 56,000 students from leading universities in the Nordics.
